Powering Forward: SOFAR All-scenario PV & ESS Innovations Pave the Way for a Greener Tomorrow
Munich, June 16, 2023 - SOFAR, the global leading provider of PV & ESS solutions, unveiled its latest technological innovation microinverter system SOFAR PowerNano, and the C&I ESS PowerIn during Powering Forward New Product Launch at Intersolar, officially completing an all-scenario portfolio covering residential, C&I and utility sectors, ranging from micro to utility solutions.
SOFAR PowerNano - Microinverter System for Future Home Energy
Designed for digital home energy of the future, PowerNano is suitable for all-scenario applications through a combination of microinverter, smart home hub and AC battery, providing an easy-to-distribute, easy-to-install and easy-to-use solution that maximizes the ROI of installing solar PV at home. On the basis of solar coupling with energy storage, the system ensures ultimate safety integrating RSD, IP67 and a DC voltage＜60V. Perfectly compatible with 182/210mm high power PV modules, the system is able to realize up to 5% increase in energy yields. What’s more, the plug-and-play installation and maintenance is extremely easy, suitable for non-professionals.
By virtue of the proven competitiveness of PowerNano, SOFAR proudly signed MoUs of 200 thousand sets with PowR Group, Elicity, PV Selected and Vögelin GmbH, marking a crucial chapter of its journey towards net-zero ambition.
SOFAR PowerIn –Maximize Your Rooftop Values
In the meantime, SOFAR has also launched PowerIn tailored for C&I energy storage. The pack-level active balancing helps increase usable battery energy by 5%. With the compatibility with 182/210mm high power modules, the DC/AC ratio reaches 1.5+ with lower LCOE. In addition to AFCI, it features 3-layer protection, thermal runaway protection and cloud monitoring to ensure optimal safety. To further simplify O&M, PowerIn offers modular design combined with maintenance-free spare batteries for direct replacement, significantly lowering labor costs and initial investment costs.
Convinced by the proven capability to offer significant cost savings and ensure a stable power supply, PVO International, Bet Solar and PowR Group also signed MoUs of PowerIn with a total capacity of 1.5GW, emphasizing SOFAR's strength and influence in energy storage sector.
SOFAR PowerMaster & PowerMega – Optimal Utility Solutions
PowerMaster is an industry-leading solution embodied with cutting-edge technologies. As a safe and reliable solution to ensure grid resilience amidst demanding market operating conditions, it adopts an innovative air and liquid hybrid cooling system. With a max. efficiency of 99.05% and 20A input current per MPPT, PowerMega enables higher power yields. Featuring IP66 and C5-M anti-corrosion, the 350kW inverter manages to survive harsh environments with a working temperature from -30℃ to 60℃.
Apart from these, a full range of PV & ESS solutions tailored for residential, C&I and utility scenarios are also on display, including SOFAR flagship SOFAR 5~20kW residential ESS, 3.3~12kW residential PV, 30~50kW C&I PV, and integrated residential ESS PowerAll.
Guy Rong, Senior Vice President of SOFAR, believes that the releasing of SOFAR PowerNano and PowerIn represents a landmark step towards global net-zero goals through an all-scenario solution portfolio. “It demonstrates our commitment to accelerating the penetration of affordable renewable energy. By leveraging our R&D capacity, we hope to continue innovation and bring forth solutions to power forward a sustainable future for all,” he added.
