Who We Are

The HiQ Solar OEM Strategy

HiQ Solar is an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). We bring our technology to market through partnerships with large solar system
manufacturers and installation companies that use standard or customized versions of our products.
We also have OEM relationships with other inverter manufacturers for which we provide custom versions of our products that enable them to broaden their product line by taking
the advantage of our manufacturing scale and unique, disruptive technology.

Our partners benefit from HiQ in two important ways: (1) access to our expertise in developing innovative power electronics products to get to market faster with more competitive products, and (2) access to our manufacturing expertise in conjunction with Flex, our contract manufacturer, to provide the most cost-effective production by leveraging high volume part procurement and manufacturing that is shared by our products.

HiQ’s partners can either sell under our TrueString™ brand, or private label our products, which can be standard, catalog units or customized solutions specific to the needs of a particular partner. We work with our partners to ensure that the value of the products and services we provide is captured
in the commercial terms of our relationship.

Marketing exclusively through our partners leaves us free to focus on our many strengths:

    • 1. An innovative, game-changing inverter platform
      • a. Access to our high speed, flexible inverter engine
      • b.Rule 21-SA compliant products at a competitive
        cost
  • 2. A tuned, high quality manufacturing infrastructure model run by our experts in supply chain management
    • a. Immediate access to Flex, our tier 1 manufacturing partner
    • b. Automotive grade manufacturing and quality processes along with stress testing procedures that meet or exceed ISO 9001 standards
  • 3. A product with disruptive technology that provides an immediate pathway to the rapidly expanding storage market

 

  • 4. An innovative technology development team with deep expertise in advanced power electronics hardware, firmware and software
  • 5. Our ability to capture additional value through:
    • a. Customizable products that can generate additional value through firmware changes alone
    • b. Higher power inverter systems comprised of standard inverter modules that provide reduced cost per watt resulting from high volume manufacturing
    • c. Inherently bi-directional inverter systems that provide immediate access to the rapidly emerging storage market
