    POMs - we're not just talking inverters anymore

    Power Organizing Modules - that's what we'll be putting together with Panasonic. They'll likely contain 3 or more essential components now made by PWER: inverter, rectifier, DC-DC transformer. These gizmos will be the key to integrating solar and will make it possible to use a lot more solar in the overall grid equation. fwiw. Cheers!

    • Nice input.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks to me like the micro-inverters aren't going to be a part of the solution when we're talking about having battery storage on-site. They'd just add cost and lower efficiency. There are so many DC appliances that are actually more efficient than AC, even the lighting can be DC, as are Electric Vehicles. The inverter is only needed to connect to the grid and to run the legacy appliances that are not available in DC versions. What P1 is going to be doing is as much a Power Solutions application as it is an inverter application. Can anyone shine further light on this subject?
