Ready Solar manufacturers Solar in a Box, a pre-engineered and pre-assembled residential solar electric system. Partnering with inverterDevice for converting direct-current (DC) electricity into the alternating-current (AC) form required for most home uses; necessary if home-generated electricity is to be fed into the electric grid through net-metering arrangements. manufacturer KACO Solar and panel manufacturer Sharp Electronics, Ready Solar combines the framing system, panel and inverter into one low-profile unit. The inverter converts low-voltage DC to AC at each panel, eliminating the need for a central inverter and DC disconnect. If one unit fails or becomes partially shaded, the rest of the system continues to operate at full capacity. In the event of failure, a panel-level, web-based monitor sends an alert. System monitoring is provided for 5 years at no cost to the owner. Solar in a Box has a 25-year warranty on the panels and a 15-year warranty on the inverters.
