are there any 10KW central inverters for residential use?

Are there any 10KW central inverters for residential use? Seems like all the 10KW inverters I see are 3 phase 208V which are how commercial places are typically wired up. Is there a way to perhaps hook up a commercial unit to a residence? I'm guessing no, but never hurts to ask, only thing to bruise is my ego. LOL.

    Usually done with multiple grid-tie inverters like my 12.5 Kw system.

    According to a sales rep that visited us a few days ago, SatCon has plans to release a 10kW 240VAC inverter to the US market in the near future.

    Just because it is 208 volts doesn't mean it is 3-phase. At 10 kw it could still be single-phase (my 8 kw APC UPS is 208 or 240 output, single-phase).

    I have a Fronius IG Plus V 10.0-1 10 KW gt inverter. It has 3 3.3 KW modules internally which switch in/out as the PV power varies.

    Nice unit, quiet and works well.

    Fronius has the 10kw, but also an 11.4kw single phase inverter.

    Fronius offers the IG Plus 10.0-1. This is a single-phase inverter that operates either 208V, 240V, or 277V. Just don't confuse it with the IG Plus 10.0-3 which is three-phase.
