The German supplier, SMA, was authorized by Japan to sell the three-phase inverter
SMA Solar Technology, a German solar energy equipment supplier is the fist non-Japanese manufacturer to sell a three-phase inverter authorized for the Japanese market.
The Japan Electrical Safety & Environment Technology Laboratories (JET) has authorized SMA Solar Technology’s Sunny Tripower 10000 TLEE-JP for sale on the Japanese solar market.
“Measured by market volume, Japan is one of the world’s most attractive markets, and the U.S. market research company IHS estimates that it will also be the photovoltaic market with the strongest sales in 2013,” announces SMA CEO Pierre-Pascal Urbon. “Now that the Sunny Tripower has received JET certification, we can cover all market segments in this important market from small residential PV systems and commercial applications to large-scale PV power plants,” Urbon adds.
The three-phase Sunny Tripower 10000TLEE-JP is designed for commercial PV with a harvest bigger than 10 kWp giving a peak of productivity of 97.8%. The inverter’s connection area is accustomed to Japanese conduits. SME started offering the JET-certified Sunny Boy inverters for home PV systems as well as Sunny Central inverters custom-made for local requirements on the Japanese market last year. This autumn, the country’s largest PV power plant supplied with SMA inverters and plant monitoring solutions is going to be operating.
“We expect continued strong growth stimuli from the Japanese photovoltaic market. With our sales and service company in Tokyo as well as our highly efficient inverters across a range of power classes precisely tailored to the demands of the Japanese market, we are extremely well positioned here in all segments,” in Urbon’s words.
