Hi Guys

I am designing a system for an east west array using 8 x REC 240PE modules on each side of the roof and was proposing to use a Power One PVI3.6OUTD inverter, splitting the array over the two MMP trackers. Could anyone please confirm for me that this would be a good configuration as I have have not used this make of inverter before.

Hi Jez,

yes, this is a good configuration, the two MPPT trackers of the PVI 3.6 will allow the two arrays to work independently.

Yes, two strings of 8x250W(ish) panels into a dual MPPT Power One is an excellent configuration.

Power One offer a configuration tool here, where you input inverter and panel type/rating:
