La Conner Residence

When designing a PV system for this stylish contemporary home in La Conner, Skagit County, the team from Whidbey Sun & Wind chose APsystems microinverters. A total of 18 Itek 260-watt modules and nine APsystems YC500 inverters were used in the 4.68 kW, tilt-rack system. The installation was completed in March.

“We chose itek and APS/Blue Frog equipment to take full advantage of the Made-In-Washington financial benefits,” says Mark Anderson, project manager and NABCEP Certified PV Installation Professional. “The APsystems inverters allowed us to avoid both string sizing and slight shading issues.”
