These small systems certainly offer a solution to a rteal problem, and my concern is about reliability. Most size reductions come along with an increase in power density, which increases the stress on components. And the higher the stress level the less the reliability, if the cost is held constant. So product lifetime does need to be discussed with this product. This is not an assertion of any deficiency, just an assertion about a concern.

Yes, Ann, I think it's the tip of the iceberg. I like the potential of these integrated AC module solar panels for residential use--they seem to be more efficient and user friendly and should promote adoption of this kind of energy.

This is a promising advancement of this technology that should make it easier to deploy solar arrays in places where there are obstacles to the sunlight source. The self-configuration feature seems especially attractive and could make solar energy a more attractive option for people who may be daunted by its installation requirements.
