Interview: Honey Raza

Honey Raza,
Head-Sales at Solis India
 

“How has the lockdown affected the production process for Ginlong Solis?”

Every crisis will bring new challenges as well as new opportunities to companies that have outstanding product competitiveness and can quickly respond to emergencies. This has allowed Ginlong Solis, which has seen a rapid increase in capturing market share, to prepare for the future.

The process of photovoltaic enterprises' transformation to intelligent manufacturing will be greatly accelerated and photovoltaic will experience a better 2020 than most are expecting.

Opportunities are left to those who are prepared. Ginlong Solis has responded to market changes and needs and applied our innovative technology to the latest fifth-generation inverter. In 2019, we had a comprehensive upgrade and the change has also allowed our sales to grow further, and technology has led string inverters into the 100kW + era.

“How do you foresee the growth of the solar rooftop niche?”

The rooftop solar plant is very suitable for the characteristics of near-site production and the consumption of photovoltaic power. With the advancement of technology, the cost of electricity is also very low. Rooftop solar plants are of great significance for adjusting the energy structure, advancing the revolution in energy production and consumption, and promoting the construction of ecological civilization.

In the rooftop solar plant, we foresee:

1. Market development, the United States, China, Southeast Asia, Europe, Australia, etc. will all grow steadily. The Indian market is different from these regions and will flourish even more. In the future, emerging markets such as the Middle East and the Mediterranean (including Saudi Arabia, Iran, Egypt, and Italy) will be the fastest-growing regions for the rooftop solar market. Distributed rooftop solar in Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and other South American countries have great potential.

2. Off-grid systems such as PV + energy storage and PV + generators will one more innovative technology and the solution can drive demand for the rooftop solar market.

“Do you plan to set up a manufacturing base in India?”

Yes, this is one of our plans. India is a large country with growing photovoltaic product consumption and has huge potential. At the same time, the Indian government is encouraging the Make in India concept. We also hope to increase cooperation with India by setting up factories in India in the future and provide the photovoltaic products, produce and construction as Make in India.

“Please tell us about Solis products and services.”

Ginlong Solis has been committed to technological innovation. From the 4G technology platform to the current 5G technology platform, our products are more abundant and the technology has also made great progress. The Indian market is one of the most active solar markets in the world. For the Indian market, we have also developed and applied many new technologies, such as technology for improving grid harmonics, active surge suppression technology, and Class II SPD technology. Intelligent system diagnosis and String level monitoring technology, on Solis cloud platform. The application of these technologies is to better match the Indian power grid, installation environment, and system management.

Ginlong Solis' after-sales service is comprehensive, including 24-hour technical support, online Q & A, and technical training response, as well as on-site technical problem assistance, warranty service, customer claim service, etc. We also have Well trained technical team and warehouse in India, which are very convenient for us to help customers solve field problems on time.

“Any plans to introduce new models in the Indian market in 2020?”

Yes. India's solar market has huge potential, both the government and the public are actively developing clean energy. Aiming at India's fast-growing industrial and commercial and ground power stations, we will bring new 5G products to the Indian market in 2020, including high-power 400VAC inverters such as 100kW, 110kW, and also 255kW such as 1500Vdc, 800VAC products for large power stations. Besides, we have also planned off-grid systems for industrial and residential applications that experience power cuts. The off-grid system can be an independent power generator to cater to such requirements

“Please tell us about the Solis 110kw String Inverter. What makes it different from the other inverters?”

Solis 110kW is designed to achieve low LCOE in commercial installations, the increasing system returns through a more intelligent, reliable, efficient, and secure string inverter technology solution.

Industry-Leading Efficiency Delivers Lower LCOE Over the Life of the Project:

Solis 110kW boasts a staggering efficiency of 98.7%, making it one of the most efficient on the market. thanks to the Solis 110kW uses advanced insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs), and new technologies such as adaptive parallel technology and wave-by-wave current limiting protection, making it achieves low “on resistance”, resulting in the highest efficiency and the lowest minimal losses.

Moreover, Solis 110kW also combines 90 MPPTs / MW, resulting in high power tracking density. With a 150% DC/AC ratio, Solis 110kW boosts energy density to ensure higher earnings and lower LCOE design. The system can produce more stable power output under irradiation, these characteristics bring nearly 3.5% power generation increase during the whole life cycle of the project.

Superior Reliability with Top-of-Range Lifespan Results Mean Better Bankability:

Solis string inverter technologies have achieved a top-of-range lifespan that has been validated by independent labs. This means solid returns you can bank on:

Designed for Flexibility & Higher Energy Yield:

The Solis 110kW has a flexible design that allows for shorter strings where needed and multi-orientation designs. Our multiple MPPTs are 100% fully independent, offering a wide DC operating voltage range. This means we have a higher production yield for greater roof utility and energy density.

Furthermore, the operating mode of Solis 110kW allows the inverter to ride through grid disturbances to increase the overall system yield. Its operation-through-voltage fluctuations provide grid stability and reliability.

Higher System Returns:

At 13 amps per string, the Solis 110kW offers one of the highest input current ratings on the market. This design allows the use of higher current bi-facial modules and can be combined with a whole column of tracking motors, which delivers more yield than current inverter designs based on the lower input current.

Solis 110kW gives contractors more for less: less manpower; less hassle; less cost. Our swap-out replacement process is fast and efficient for simple better O&M.
