Eaton Corporation’s S-Max Series 250 kW grid-tied Inverter is manufactured in Milton, Ontario. The S-Max Series is designed for large-scale rooftop solar installations. Its active front end (AFE) technology operates in harsh environments with 24/7 operation cycles. It includes embedded intelligence for automated commissioning, operation and shutdown.

The sleek Avancis PowerMax rack-mounted PV modules by CertainTeed/Saint-Gobain consist of copper–indium–selenide (CIS) solar technology. The panels continue to generate electricity even in partial shading and have a high snow load capacity.

The SunSource Commercial Energy System by Lennox is the first commercial HVAC system that integrates directly with solar power. It integrates with the Energence rooftop unit and accommodates up to 21 solar panels. Microinverter technology individually controls the panels. Changes to the building’s electrical wiring are not generally required.
