Hoymiles helps Estonian project meet subsidy deadline

Microinverter firm Hoymiles has been credited with helping a 63.6kW PV system meet the end of year deadline for subsidy payments in Estonia. The firm provided its plug-and-play 600W microinverters to the developer SunWave to enable it to design and install the rooftop system in less than one month.

Elsewhere, the company has also launched its products in Sri Lanka via a partnership with distributor Macksons Power & Energy (MPE). “We are very confident in working with Hoymiles to develop ways to help our users safely build and operate higher-yielding PV power stations. What we and Hoymiles are doing here represents an excellent start in the Sri Lanka market,” said Sajjaad Saliheen, CEO, MPE.
