Schott Applied Power Corporation's new SunRoof RS is the best residential grid-tied PV package on the market. The SunRoof RS kit, unlike its competition, has all the components I need to complete a customer installation. With high quality components, a competitive price, and a complete kit, the SunRoof allows me to deliver quality and value to my customers.

HM SunRoof

Complete PV Kit

The SunRoof RS comes complete with SAPC-165 Watt modules, SMA Sunny Boy inverter, racking, kWh meter, module wiring, combiner box, and disconnects. This saves time because I don't have to stop the job to shop for parts not included.

Easy Installation

The SunRoof RS is designed for easy installation. One person can complete a typical installation in one day.

Quality and Reliability

The SunRoof RS includes the highest quality and most reliable UL listed and CEC certified PV products and components.

I can combine multiple SunRoofs to make larger systems. With only a few versions, they are easy to order, stock and combine to meet my customer's needs.

Value

With a great price, an inverter module combination designed to deliver high efficiency, and easy installation, the SunRoof RS delivers real value. The SunRoof makes me more competitive in the rapidly expanding PV marketplace.
