Chinese inverter manufacturer Sungrow Power Supply has secured its first utility-scale order in the USA.

Solar developer Southern Sky Renewable Energy has purchased 10 Sungrow SG500LV inverters for its 6MW Ravenbrook Landfill Solar Project in Carver, Massachusetts.

The project will be the second the company has developed on a former landfill site. Last year it completed 5.75MW solar installation on another landfill site in Canton, Massachusetts (see image, left).

Manny Sakellakis, executive partner of SDL Solar, Sungrow’s US agent, said: “We are very excited to be the first to bring Sungrow to the US market. As the landscape of the solar inverter market changes rapidly, I believe that Sungrow will capture a significant share of the US market in very short time.”

“The US solar market is one of the larger, more stable markets in the world, and crucial to Sungrow’s long-term growth strategy,” added Cao Renxian, CEO of Sungrow Power Supply.
