Being a global top 10 brand, Growatt also ranks among the world’s top three inverter brands for residential PV systems and is one of the four leading inverter brands for commercial and industrial solar plants, according to IHS Markit.

Over the years, Growatt has built strong and experienced local teams in key solar markets and has been committed to providing comprehensive and professional training in solar PV, battery storage and smart energy management technologies. To date, the company has established an extensive service network, with 20 offices and warehouses worldwide.

With a solid track record over the past decade, Growatt’s PV inverters, energy storage and smart energy management solutions have earned widespread popularity among customers.

The story of Growatt began in 2010 when David Ding, the company’s founder, decided to establish his own enterprise and set out on a mission to provide high-quality PV inverters for the world. “I believed in the future of the solar industry when I founded Growatt at the age of 30. The solar market was just getting kicked off at that time,” said Ding. “With our dedication to innovation, focus on market demands, industry trends and a commitment to product reliability and excellent service, Growatt’s growth has been fast and robust since establishment.”
