Sungrow, the world’s top inverter and energy storage system solution provider, announced that it will supply Orion Power with more than 100 MW of inverter systems. Under the PMGD rule, the solutions will be implemented in over 20 small and medium-sized solar projects in Chile, enabling the Chilean energy transition with shared expertise and experience.
The Chilean government’s PMGD regulation encourages the development of such projects by allowing energy producers with a maximum capacity of 9 MW to connect to the grid and sell excess energy to distribution companies. The projects, located in Chile’s III and VII Regions, will generate more than 200 GWh per year on average and reduce over 70,000 tonnes of CO2 annually.
Sungrow’s 3 MW central inverter system was chosen for these distributed projects because of its high efficiency, dependability, and flexibility. The inverter solution includes a battery adaptable option for future energy storage requirement and is compatible with bifacial modules and tracking systems, resulting in improved yields for the solar project.
Orion Power, the project’s developer and EPC, stated, “We are very pleased with Sungrow’s inverters and their professional services, reinforcing our competitive advantages in the industry. We look forward to teaming up with Sungrow to lead the way toward a greener and sustainable future in Chile,” stated Felipe Cosmelli, partner and CO-CEO of Orion Power.
“We appreciate the continued trust of Orion Power. The PMGD regulation provides a good opportunity for us to commit to renewable energy projects in Chile. We will continue to provide reliable and competitive solutions to support our shared clean energy goals,” Gonzalo Feito, Director of Sungrow Andean Region, stated.
