1. A junction box comprising:

  • an input conductor configured to receive a first power from a first solar panel;

    a downstream connector configured to receive a second power from a second solar panel;

    an upstream connector configured to output load power sourced from the first power and the second power; and

    an internal circuit interface comprising an internal input connected to the input conductor and to the downstream connector and configured to receive the first power and the second power, and an internal output connected to the upstream connector and configured to output the load power to the upstream connector, the internal circuit interface being configured to receive a removable bypass link in a first configuration and a removable power converter in place of the removable bypass link in a second configuration.
