1. Huawei

Huawei inverters maintain the top spot in the rankings with 38% of all project quotations. The SUN-2000 100KTL and 330KTL products are often seen coupled with Smartloggers. A new utility-scale inverter model is expected to be released in 2023, and we’re eager to see what it will bring. See our utility-scale injection control project on a PV plant in France.

2. SMA

German-made inverter, SMA has cemented its place as one of the industry leaders in the utility-scale solar inverter market. With a proven track record of quality and reliability, it takes the second spot in our ranking. Products like Tripower Core 1 inverters offer a range of applications. Check out our solar-diesel integration project for a beverage plant in Pakistan.

3. Sungrow

Reclaiming its spot in 3rd place is Sungrow. It saw an increase from 8% to 13% in 2022. While Sungrow has a strong presence in Asia, its products have also been used in projects in Africa and France. The SG110-CX is a Multi-MPPT String Inverter that offers IP66 and C5 anti-corrosion res allowing for use in harsh environments. Check out our solar-diesel integration project on a mine in Chile.
