Chint’s 20kW String Solution Saves Thousands of Dollars in Inverter Cost, Installation Time, Labor and Balance of System Costs
Pleasanton, California, October 11, 2012 - Chint Power Systems America completed a 176kW project for 411 Energy LLC in Texas and demonstrated performance to advance the inverter industry in North America. As a leader of 3-Phase string inverter solutions for commercial applications, Chint delivered leading product performance, flexibility and reduced installed cost.
Chint’s 20kW platform has been tested by PHOTON Labs as a “top 10” inverter of all models evaluated (as of November, 2011) . Also, this summer, BEW Engineering completed an independent engineering report on Chint Power Systems business and product line. This successful project adds to Chint’s positive testimonials which reflect its tagline, “Inverter Performance You Can Bank On.”
Gary Jones, President and CEO of 411 Energy, says it best, “Of all the inverters we have used in the 480V 3-phase environment, Chint Power far exceeds our experience with other firms. Our 176kW installation experienced convenient timely delivery and was extremely cost effective. We benefited from the flexible inverter setup via independent dual 10kW MPPT’s, integrated AC/DC disconnects and integrated combiner with fused DC circuit inputs.” Mr. Jones adds, “We saved tens of thousands of dollars in inverter costs, time, labor and BoS”.
“We are delighted that we helped our customer lower costs and improve project efficiency,” noted Ed Heacox, GM of Sales and Marketing for Chint Power Systems America, “This is our objective for all customers in North America – the value proposition is strong and Chint is ideally positioned to deliver on the promise.”
