KACO new energy updated its Pan-American product portfolio at Solar Power International in Las Vegas. The Company’s featured product is the blueplanet 125 TL3, a 1500V string inverter solution designed specifically for KACO new energy’s robust client portfolio of leading utility-scale developers and EPCs.
“As a compliment to the fully integrated power stations with centralized inverters being built in Texas by KACO for large utility-scale applications the blueplanet 125 TL3 1500V enables the global trend towards decentralized architectures for smaller-scale utility projects,” said Eduardo Casilda, Senior Director of Sales and Business Development for KACO new energy Inc.
“The idea of course being to both lower equipment costs as well as O&M costs while remaining flexible in design, minimizing risks and keeping installation and maintenance simple for projects owners, developers and contractors,” he added.
Another focus of the Company’s exhibit at Solar Power International, is the complete residential, commercial and utility-scale portfolio offered in the Latin American PV market. 2017 is a significant growth year for the Company’s market share in Central and South America, which includes milestones such as supplying Latin America’s largest rooftop installation.
This year, KACO new energy also grew its brand in the rapidly expanding Mexican photovoltaic market, with the country’s top distributors now all supplying KACO as a preferred inverter solution.
In July, the Company launched the blueplanet 29.0 TL3 INT LV (“29.0 Series”), an inverter with lower AC output voltage developed for the Company’s rapidly expanding Commercial and Industrial (C&I) sales channels in Latin America and the Caribbean.
“Our strategic placement of the Americas manufacturing and service hub in San Antonio, Texas continues to yield positive results and enables us to achieve unmatched flexibility, customization and regionalization of our solutions and operational platform,” said Casilda.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
