    How does an existing residential PV user “upgrade” their current Sunny Boy inverter with this technology? I live in the San Francisco Bay Area of California.

      Hi Cathy! If your inverter is the SB US-40 Series all you need to do is to get the Rooftop Communications Kit and install the components inside the inverter.
      For other types of inverters there is an Outdoor Rooftop Communications Kit that includes the necessary components to be able to communicate with the TS4-R devices on the roof (PN 348-00000-00).
      I recommend you check inverter compatibility on this document:
      Best Regards.

        I also have a unit already installed and need to potentially ‘upgrade’ it with this new technology. I’ve looked throughout your website and don’t see even a ‘ballpark’ price on how much this upgrade would cost. Can you provide some pricing or tell me where on your website I can find it?
