GoodWe SMT-US inverters for medium- to large-scale C&I sites are now available via Sunnova Energy International. This partnership allows GoodWe and Sunnova to meet the growing demand by commercial and industrial (C&I) customers that want to stabilize energy costs, take advantage of IRA production and investment credits, and benefit from selling clean energy.

“By collaborating with Sunnova, an industry-leading energy services company with national reach, GoodWe is expanding and simplifying access to its products across the US as market demand is on the rise and EPCs are looking for cost-effective and competitive solutions to grow and scale their businesses,” stated Michael Mendik, Country Manager of GoodWe USA and Canada.

GoodWe’s SMT-US three-phase 50/60 kW inverter, now available through Sunnova’s extensive distribution network, provides improved safety and design flexibility. The string inverter includes a built-in rapid shutdown transmitter eliminating the need to install additional module-level hardware. It also complies with safety standards with type II surge protection for both DC and AC to prevent voltage spikes.

All of GoodWe’s string inverters for the North American market achieve safety shutdown standards with a built-in rapid shutdown transmitter, eliminating the need to install MLPE.

With up to 6 MPPTs and a Max 15A DC input current per string for high-power module compatibility, the GoodWe SMT-US inverters provide design versatility. While its 150% DC input oversizing, 110% AC output overloading, and 180-980V wide input operating range for improved system uptime throughout the day increase the system’s energy output during the system’s lifetime.

To reduce OPEX costs, the inverter leverages a unique fuse-free design to simplify maintenance and increase reliability.

“GoodWe’s C&I inverters offer benefits at every stage of the system lifecycle, from design flexibility during planning to simpler O&M and increased system uptime after interconnection,” Mendik says.

GoodWe’s commercial and industrial product suite includes inverters, smart meters, and loggers for monitoring. Its C&I product suite delivers significant economic, environmental, and operational advantages for businesses, large and small. GoodWe’s SEMS (Smart Energy Management System) platform is a state-of-the-art solution for efficient solar and storage monitoring and management.
