FORT COLLINS - ZNShine, a Chinese manufacturer of silicon ingots, wafers and solar photovoltaic modules, announced it is partnering with Fort Collins-based Ampt to offer global customers smart solar modules that lower overall system costs while increasing energy output for maximum performance.
Under the partnership, ZNShine will incorporate Ampt's power conversion technology in its solar panels via the Shoals Technologies MultiLink junction box to deliver more energy per module while helping system integrators lower the cost of balance-of-system components, ZNShine said.
"We are pleased to announce this partnership with Ampt," said Conny Axel Hulverscheidt, ZNShine director of marketing. "Our optimized PV modules leveraging Ampt technology will further the adoption of our solar module solution in the U.S. market, while strengthening and diversifying our product portfolio available to existing customers in Europe and Asia."
ZNShine's smart solar module integrates the Shoals MultiLink Accessory Module powered by Ampt, which uses Ampt's innovative DC/DC module-level optimizers and patented Smart Panel Technology.
Ampt's optimizers maximize output by delivering the full available power of each solar module and recovering lost energy from non-uniform degradation.
"ZNShine has an excellent reputation in Europe and Asia, and we are excited to announce this partnership, as it will allow our technology to reach a broader market," said Levent Gun, Ampt CEO.
