Newly launched solar inverter and solutions provider Solinteg has launched a range of new PV products in recent months as it expands its international presence and targets 2GW of production capacity in next year, which will increase to 10GW by 2025.
Founded in March 2022, the company is focused on developing products and solutions for PV microgrid applications, with the core ‘Integ M’ series of hybrid inverters primarily aimed at commercial and industrial (C&I) and residential market. The company offers a comprehensive range of 3-50kW hybrid inverters, including single-phase 3-8kW, three-phase 4-12kW, three-phase 10-20kW and three-phase 25-50kW.
To support continued development, the manufacturer recently closed a Series A funding round led by TCL Ventures and other financial investors.
TCL Ventures is a financial investment platform of TCL Technology, a leading technology company that entered the PV industry in 2020. TCL technology currently focuses on three sectors: display technology, clean solutions energy and finance in industry and capital.
As part of its research and development efforts, Solinteg is working to improve PV system efficiency and reduce energy loss. The company’s vision is to intelligently integrate hardware and artificial intelligence, while intelligently managing the entire energy system and creating more value for customers by reducing energy costs.
New product launches
Solinteg claims to offer the most complete product portfolio of hybrid inverters for the residential and C&I solar market. Last August, the company launched the first product of the Integ M series, a three-phase 4-20kW inverter designed for residential and C&I applications, with a beautiful appearance, advanced performance, easy installation and stable long-term operation. Available in eight power types, the inverter weighs 27kg and has a high efficiency from 98.2% to 98.4%.
With easy data reading and energy monitoring, the Integ M 4-20kW inverter is designed from a user’s point of view, with the product providing fast power transfer in the event of outages, maintain continuous operation at constant load.
A month ago, the Integ M 3-8kW single-phase hybrid inverter was released for the residential market. Available in seven power types, the range supports input currents up to 15A and is compatible with all mainstream solar modules on the market.
The third launch of Integ M – a three-phase 25-50kW hybrid inverter for C&I applications – was announced in October. With a rated DC input voltage of 620V and maximum DC input voltages of up to 1000V, the product is available in five versions and has a maximum efficiency of 98.8%. This inverter includes a lithium battery with 100A battery charge/discharge current and an ultra-wide voltage range of 135-750V. With a 135V low starting voltage and an unbalanced load function up to 100%, it greatly increases the utilization rate of PV and saves electricity costs for users.
International expansion efforts
Solinteg’s main manufacturing base is located in Wuxi, close to the ports of Shanghai and Ningbo, making international logistics convenient and efficient. Wuxi has a long history in the semiconductor and integrated circuit industries, which gives the company more security in terms of future component supply.
Solinteg received local government support to help it build factories and offices. In terms of product development, the company strictly adheres to ISO system specifications for technology, process and quality to ensure there is no backlog of orders and quality is not affected as capacity expansion accelerates. The company has already opened offices in Singapore, Germany and Australia, established local sales and marketing teams as well as regional support networks. “With an on-site team, Solinteg can be closer to its customers and respond to their needs more specifically,” explained Kui Li, the company’s co-founder and sales and marketing president.
The German office is home to the company’s main R&D center, which focuses on the latest research on renewable energy technology.
In South Africa, on the other hand, Solinteg has partnered with a local distributor to release their Integ M range. “We believe that the distributed PV energy storage market in South Africa has great potential,” commented Li when the collaboration was announced, adding: “Together, we can provide sustainable, intelligent and effective of clean energy for South African consumers.”
With demand for residential solar and storage on the rise in countries experiencing rising electricity prices, Solinteg sees strong potential for its products in markets such as Germany, the US, Australia, Japan, Italy and Spain. In addition, rich groups of countries with weak power grids and prone to natural disasters have become a new market for increasing residential PV and energy storage, with the company particularly which focuses on growth in South Africa and Brazil. As it ramps up production to reach 10GW by 2025, the manufacturer is bullish on its prospects. “We are fully committed to delivering the world’s most complete inverter solutions for residential and commercial use,” Li concluded.
