SOFAR Advances India’s Pace in Clean Transition with PV & ESS Innovations at REI 2023


SOFAR, the global leading provider of all-scenario PV & ESS solutions, draws significant attention by showcasing its industry-leading solar and storage solutions at Renewable Energy India (REI), facilitating the energy structure transformation and the country’s renewable energy adoption.


Currently, the utility segment contributes to the major growth of the Indian RE industry. Recently, SOFAR forged a 100 MW contract of supplying 255KTL-HV utility string inverters for solar plants in Tamil Nadu with Velan Infra. To further expand its influence, the company unveils a 350 kW inverter PowerMega tailored for utility solar. The inverter made an impressive debut with a seamless integration of profitability, reliability, and hassle-free O&M. The inverter characterizes a 1.8 DC/AC ratio and 20 A input current per MPPT, with a combability with 182/210mm high-power modules, which ensures lower LCOE and higher yields for customers. Featuring IP66 protection, C5-M anti-corrosion, and smart string-level disconnection (SSLD), PowerMega manages to survive harsh environments with longer service life.
