Sungrow Floating PV, now a gigawatt-level floating PV system supplier, has partnered with US Floating Solar, LLC as its North American Agent for its industry leading floating solar products. Sungrow FPV has supplied 1.4 GW of floating solar systems around the world (as of June 2021) in various application scenarios, such as hydropower facilities, in extreme cold region areas, on drinking water reservoirs, quarry lakes, water treatment plants & large water depth dams.
“US Floating Solar is excited to work with Sungrow FPV in developing the US floating solar market for utilities, EPC’s, asset owners and developers,” according to Richard Heller, managing partner.
Sungrow FPV can accommodate any size solar modules including new larger format modules; the floating mounting system is available in various tilt angles (5-20 degrees); and the system’s buoyancy adjusts to meet snow load requirements in different regions.
Sungrow FPV is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sungrow Group, with 24 years of R&D and production experience in the PV industry. Their R&D team has applied for more than 100 patents for their floating body mounting system, anchor system, inverter & booster floating platform and system O&M.
Sungrow FPV is a market leader in floating photovoltaic (FPV) technology standards too. DNV, the independent energy expert and assurance provider, awarded a Statement of Conformity to Sungrow FPV, for inland water and coastal areas, for its anchoring and mooring design methodology for Floating PV systems. The Statement of Conformity is the first of its kind to refer to the DNVGL-RP-0584, Recommended Practice for Design, Development and Operation of floating solar photovoltaic systems.

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.
