SOFAR, a provider of PV (Photovoltaic) and ESS (Energy Storage System) solutions, has introduced its latest technological advancements at Intersolar Europe 2023. The new additions include the SOFAR PowerNano microinverter system and the C&I (Commercial & Industrial) ESS PowerIn.
The SOFAR PowerNano is a versatile solution designed for all-scenario applications. It combines a microinverter, smart home hub, and AC battery, offering a user-friendly, easy-to-distribute, easy-to-install solution that maximizes the return on investment for residential solar PV installations. The system prioritizes safety with features like RSD (Rapid Shutdown Device), IP67 protection, and a DC voltage of less than 60V.
It is fully compatible with high-power PV modules measuring 182/210mm, allowing for up to a 5 percent increase in energy yields. The PowerNano’s exceptional competitiveness is evident in the signing of Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) for 200 thousand sets with esteemed partners such as PowR Group, Elicity, PV Selected, and Vögelin GmbH, representing a significant milestone in SOFAR’s journey towards achieving net-zero ambitions.
Additionally, SOFAR has introduced the PowerIn system, specifically tailored for C&I energy storage applications. The pack-level active balancing feature enhances the usable battery energy by 5 percent. With its compatibility with high-power modules measuring 182/210mm, the PowerIn system achieves a high DC/AC ratio of 1.5+ while maintaining a lower Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE). Safety is a top priority, and the system incorporates AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter), 3-layer protection, thermal runaway protection, and cloud monitoring to ensure optimal operational safety.
In addition to these new offerings, SOFAR presents a comprehensive range of PV and ESS solutions specifically designed for residential, C&I, and utility-scale applications. This includes their flagship residential ESS (Energy Storage System) model, the SOFAR 5~20kW, residential PV systems ranging from 3.3kW to 12kW, C&I PV systems spanning from 30kW to 50kW, and the integrated residential ESS PowerAll.
SOFAR’s latest product lineup at Intersolar Europe 2023 demonstrates their commitment to delivering cutting-edge PV and ESS solutions for diverse energy needs across various sectors.
