Company History

Unlike other inverter brands which evolved from well-established power electronics manufacturers, Sungrow was founded back in 1997 by Cao Renxian, a Professor at Hefei University of Technology who wanted to improve the electricity supply in rural western China using renewable energy.
This motivation to help supply renewable energy was the foundation for one of the most successful inverter manufacturers not only in China but around the world. The Sungrow Power Supply Co Ltd is now the worlds second largest inverter manufacturer behind Huawei, with a net worth of $1.5 billion and specialises in R&D, manufacturing and services of power supply systems for wind energy, energy storage, and all varieties of solar PV power systems. To be more precise, the company specialises in power conversion technologies, energy route switching, energy conversion for electric vehicles, and renewable energy generators and inverters. Brisbane solar system installers always turn to the Sungrow inverters. The sungrow is the most reliable solar inverter and Australians can’t get enough of them.

Corporate Responsibility

Another rather commendable characteristic of Sungrow is the company actively participates in many social welfare activities, including poverty alleviation, donations to schools, disaster relief, and seeks to enhance the sustainability of public welfare practices. This level of social corporate responsibility possibly evolved from the generous nature of the founder and became ingrained in the company culture. When most people are looking for the best solar inverter or the best solar brand to go with for their home. They can’t look past the brand that gives back to the community as much as Sungrow do.

Residential Solar Inverters

The residential SG series of solar inverters from Sungrow have become very popular due to the competitive price and great reliability. The strong sales figures show they are now the second biggest selling solar inverter in Australia by volume, coming second only to Fronius (according to Formbay data). Also, Sungrow has a great reputation for quality compared to many other Chinese manufacturers, along with good service from the Sydney based support office, which has further helped improve their status. Brisbane solar panel installers love using sungrow inverters when installaling brisbane solar power.

Sungrow Hybrid Inverters

Most people ask, what are hybrid inverters?
What is the difference between a normal and hybrid inverter?
The first residential hybrid inverter from Sungrow, the SH5K+ was released back in 2015. This basic inverter was quite popular despite being a rather unattractive square unit with no backup (off-grid) option. When the backup box was released a year later in 2016, it became widely known as one of the very few hybrid inverters which was affordable, reliable and could also provide backup.
