FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 7, 2017 — Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, has announced that its long-anticipated 125kW string inverter, the SG125HV, received its UL 1741-SA certification, priming the product for a quick rollout into North America. In addition to Sungrow’s SG2500U, the SG125HV is the second Sungrow string inverter to receive the certification. Sungrow’s newest product is not only the most powerful 1500V string inverter in the world at 125kW, but also one of the first to meet the stringent grid requirement.
The SG125HV inverter is one of Sungrow’s flagship products with a 125kW power output rating-the highest rating in the world for any string inverter. With all of that power, the inverter weighs only 159 pounds, making it the most power-dense string inverter on the market.
Getting its products certified ahead of schedule indicates the fast-growing development of Sungrow and its products in North America. The company has intensified its focus on global markets and international expansion with exports expected to grow exponentially, and North America remains a high target for the company. With the SG2500U central inverter also receiving the UL 1741-SA certification, Sungrow has become the first provider that has 1500Vdc inverters of both types receiving the stringent certifications required for North American projects.
“The UL 1741-SA certification is a new requirement for grid-connected inverters in North America, and also one of the most stringent and difficult to obtain. We are excited that our products are up-to-date with the latest industry requirements and standards. Sungrow remains steadfast in its mission to power the world on cleaner energy,” said Professor Renxian Cao, President of Sungrow.
Both the SG125HV and the SG2500U will be on display at the Solar Power International show in Las Vegas next week (#3226).
