Sungrow has announced the launch of the company’s latest commercial string inverter (SG75CX) for Brazilian micro-generation power plants, showcasing its continued commitment to comply with regional power demands and to decarbonize the local economy.
The Brazilian solar market has not been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as increasing electricity demand, low-interest rates and favourable tariff policies have enabled continuous sustainable development. The distributed generation (DG) sector in Brazil is very promising, offering significant opportunities for the new Sungrow inverter.
Equipped with 9 MPPTs, the new inverter is installable across diverse commercial PV plants. It guarantees optimal power generation even when performing in shady conditions. It is compatible with bifacial modules of over 600Wp and is designed with a high DC/AC ratio of up to 2 — ensuring a lower initial investment and a minimum LCOE.
Given the complexity of installation environments such as coastal areas, the built-in PID recovery function is essential, preventing any power loss by using reverse potential at night to cancel polarization and restore degraded modules. Its competitive protection level of IP66 and an anti-corrosion grade of C5 allows for enhanced efficiency and improved resilience. Designed with smart-forced air-cooling technology, the inverter operates without derating even when temperatures reach 50 degrees Celsius.
“Sungrow’s four year presence in the Brazilian market has allowed us to align with our customers and their unique needs. The 75 kW inverter is another flagship solution we have added to our distributed generation portfolio, matching niche demands with outstanding performance. It will be available in most of our distribution channels and will contribute more to the net-zero carbon planet,” commented Rafael Ribeiro, Sungrow’s Country Manager for Brazil.
With its Brazilian branch operating in Sao Paulo, Sungrow has a strong local team offering comprehensive sales, technical support and after-sales service. The company has been a market leader since 2019 and currently has more than 60,000 inverter units deployed across the country.
“We have a large capacity for continued growth,” added Ribeiro. In the overall landscape of other LATAM solar hubs, including Argentina and Chile, Sungrow has also made huge progress in 2020, including surpassing 1 GW in shipments to the Chilean market.
