POWER OPTIMIZER: Smart Module Technology

Solar power technology isn’t a new discovery; in fact, it was discovered way back in 1800 when Alexandre-Edmond Becquerel—a nineteen-year old French scientist—was experimenting with an electrolytic cell composed of two metal electrodes. He was surprised as he discovered that the materials would emit energy when exposed to light. That was when PV effect came […]
