Intelligent solar inverters for smarter self-consumption

FuturENERGY September-October 2020

SAJ, one of the leading global inverter manufacturers, with a focus on renewable energy conversion, transmission and storage solutions, supplies grid-connected inverters (0.7 kW – 60 kW), hybrid solar inverters for storage systems, battery energy storage systems and monitoring platforms.

In 2017, the company enjoyed a 24% market share of China’s residential PV market and featured in the IHS ranking of the Top 10 global suppliers of solar inverters for residential use. In 2019, SAJ held over 25% of the share of storage inverters in the Australian residential PV market. Its latest product, the R5 series solar inverter, won the TÜV Rheinland “All Quality Matters” award in the PV Inverter for Home Use Category in 2019. To guarantee a fast service response and high-quality products, SAJ has set up a warehouse in Belgium to support European customers.

Since Spain launched its new regulation on renewable self-consumption in 2019, the Spanish PV market has received a new stimulus. Taking advantage of the growing need for solar PV deployment, SAJ has launched the R5 solar inverter, which provides solutions for grid-connected residential and small-and medium-scale commercial solar systems. R5 inverters are now selling well and support customers with zero export and 24/7 load consumption monitoring solutions, making the self-consumption of solar energy smarter. This article describes some references for the R5 series inverter installed in Spain.
