This energy activates and loosens electrons, allowing them to flow freely. Incorporated into the

Sharp Innovation: Sharp's Inverter has made
more affordable and extremely reliable. Unique to the industry, the 3.5 kW high power output is ideally sized for residential use and may reduce the number of inverters needed to fulfill large electricity requirements. It has a unique ability to blend electricity from modules on up to three different roof surfaces, allowing the design of systems that are both attractive and meet exact power requirements.
SOLAR POWER MONITOR
User Friendly: Most inverters have a data read-out directly on the device which may be mounted outside the house. Sharp, however, has created a separate monitor for design-conscious consumers that fits beautifully into the decor of any home. Its in-house readout and touch-sensitive operation provide current and cumulative readouts on
