Leading solar PV inverter company Huawei is delighted to announce that developer and EPC firm, Strata Solar, has selected Huawei string inverters for use in several of its utility-scale power plant projects in the United States.
Huawei became the leading inverter supplier for PV power plants worldwide in 2015, according to industry research firms IHS and GTM. Based on IHS and GTM data for the first half of 2016, Huawei has further increased its market lead. It is with this strong background that Huawei enters the North American market.

“Our flagship product, the Huawei SUN2000 string inverter, delivers 98.5% weighted efficiency, as rated by the California Energy Commission (CEC). Unique in the market, the SUN2000 string inverter adopts natural cooling technology without needing to change fuses, resulting in increased reliability and lower maintenance costs.”
