    Anybody w/experience installing a solar PV system in Canada/Ontario? I am talking about 10kW to 50 kW commercial w/600Vac. Are there any solar inverters (Xantrex, SatCon, others) with 600Vac output? Is it better to use an US-solar inverter for 480V with a transformer? Any help is appreciated...
