MyGenTM Residential System

MyGenerationTM - Utility Interactive System

A growing number of homeowners worldwide are expressing a desire for "clean electricity" and independence from imported oil and gas. As the restructuring of the U.S. electric utility industry accelerates and electric service monopolies open up to competition, many new markets will emerge for value-added, environmentally sustainable solar electric systems and services.

Solar Roof

Kyocera designs and builds solar electric power systems that have everything you need to generate your own electricity. Our utility interactive systems are installed on the roofs of thousands of grid-connected buildings. These rooftop systems not only produce electricity for households, but also allow surplus energy to be sold back to the utility.


The MyGenTM Grid-tie Photovoltaic (PV) Power System consists of photovoltaic modules, a direct current to alternating current (DC-to-AC) power conversion device, DC wiring and protection, AC wiring and protection, lightning protection, component mounting and mechanical support.

Outdoor Residential Installation

The MyGenTM system is designed for use on residential and small commercial buildings of typical construction. Photovoltaic mounting is rafter-secured for structural compliance with most local building codes. MyGenTM systems comply with the following regulations:

  • 2008 National Electrical Code (NEC-2008)
  • IEEE Std 929-2000-Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Recommended Practices for Utility Interface of Photovoltaic (PV) Systems
  • UL 1741-Underwriters Laboratories Standard for Safety-Static Inverters and Charge Controllers for Use in Photovoltaic Power Systems
  • ICBO 2000-International Building Code.

Pre-Packaged Systems

Kyocera Solar, Inc. specializes in pre-packaged, integrated solar electric systems for all power applications. The applications include residential power for stand-alone and utility interactive buildings, RV/Marine, water pumping and industrial remote power systems (telecommunication, oil & gas, traffic signals, and medical). The most popular system configurations for residential applications are represented in this catalog; however, systems requiring larger power requirements and other system components can be provided. Call your Kyocera Authorized Dealer for more information and design assistance.

The MyGenTM Grid-Tie Photovoltaic (PV) Power System consists of photovoltaic modules, a direct current to alternating current (DC-to-AC) power conversion device, DC wiring, DC and AC overcurrent protection, lightning protection, component mounting and mechanical support.

The MyGenTM System is designed for use on residential buildings of typical construction. Photovoltaic mounting is rafter-secured for structural compliance with most local building codes. MyGenTM complies with the 2008 National Electrical Code (NEC-2008), IEEE Std 929-2000-Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Recommended Practices for Utility Interface of Photovoltaic (PV) Systems, UL 1741-Underwriters Laboratories Standard for Safety-Static Inverters and Charge Controllers for Use in Photovoltaic Power Systems and the ICBO 2000-International Building Code.

The modular, packaged systems can be combined to form larger systems, depending upon user need, availability of unshadowed roof space and existing or planned electrical utility configuration.

The MyGen Grid-Connected Residential System must be installed by a licensed electrician and/or a licensed contractor.
