Powering Canadian homes: Fronius GEN24

With the Fronius GEN24, you can experience the highest PV yields (even in the shade), an integrated basic backup power supply function as standard, and unbeatable flexibility in system design. The award-winning inverter for the home is now available in North America.

The Fronius GEN24, which has won several awards in Europe, is a state-of-the-art string inverter that has now been developed for the North American market. Thanks to pioneering technology and innovative design, the Fronius GEN24 ensures the highest PV yields on every roof.

Unbeatable PV efficiency thanks to intelligent shade management

Even with overshadowed PV modules, the integrated Dynamic Peak Manager means that the Fronius GEN24 delivers the highest possible energy yield, while the intelligent and highly efficient MPP tracking algorithm eliminates the need for performance optimizers with this system. Not only does this result in lower costs due to fewer system components, but also minimizes the cost of installation and servicing.

The Fronius GEN24 adapts to all conditions, whether suspended, horizontal, or in a special mounting bracket, and both indoors and outdoors. Thanks to its innovative SuperFlex design, the inverter also delivers unmatched flexibility in system planning and ensures the highest yields even on complex roofs. What’s more, the broad input voltage range means the Fronius GEN24 is able to achieve an efficient solar harvest even with different roof orientations.

“With the Fronius GEN24, our customers benefit from impressive efficiency and reliability. Our inverter delivers unbeatable energy yields even on the most complex roofs and, thanks to the Dynamic Peak Manager, doesn’t require performance optimizers, even when shade comes into play. This is photovoltaic technology that makes sense for everyone; simple, efficient, and future-proof,” explains Elisabeth Engelbrechtsmüller-Strauss, CEO of Fronius.

Long service life and dependability all part of the package

The inverter performance is highly temperature-dependent, which is why the Fronius GEN24 is equipped with efficient active cooling technology. Thanks to active cooling, Fronius inverters last longer and deliver the best possible performance even when outside temperatures are high. For PV system owners, this means dependable operation, which in turn guarantees faster amortization of the PV system.

With the Fronius GEN24, customers benefit not only from reliable solar power production, but also from a high degree of energy dependability. Thanks to the PV Point, the Fronius inverter offers an integrated basic backup power supply function as standard. The most important electrical loads in the home (such as a refrigerator) can be supplied with energy via a backup power socket.

Easy installation coupled with ongoing support

Installers enjoy unprecedented ease of installation with the Fronius GEN24. The Fronius inverter is simple to install and connect thanks to quick-acting screws and push-in spring clamps. The generous connection area also offers enough space for any additional components needed in the future.

The Fronius GEN24 is optimally integrated into the digital world of Fronius solutions; whether planning, commissioning, monitoring or service—Fronius offers digital support for every requirement over the entire service life of the inverter. Commissioning has been made particularly easy: it takes place in just three simple steps with the Fronius Solar.start app and a smartphone.
