System Plus Consulting is publishing the reverse costing report on the Aurora solar inverter MICRO-0.25-I supplied by Power-One, the second largest PV inverter manufacturer.

MICRO-0.25-I is a 250W micro-inverter offering Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) for each single module with efficiency ratings of up to 96.5%. The system uses film capacitors instead of electrolytic capacitors. This change allows a longer product lifetime and a standard warranty of 10 years. Four SiC diodes improve the electrical performances of the micro-inverter. The system is also equipped with a wireless communication interface.

Based on a complete teardown analysis, the report provides an estimation of the production cost as well as the selling price of the product.

This reverse costing report contains:

  • Detailed photos
  • Bill of Materials
  • Manufacturing process flow
  • Manufacturing cost breakdown
  • Manufacturing price estimation
