Solar Inverter Firm Growatt Pins Hopes On its MAX Series To Boost Growth The Capture of Indian Market by Solar Inverter Firm Growatt

Over the past decade, solar inverter firm Growatt has maintained its strong presence and growth in the Indian solar market. The employment of advanced technology along with localized strategy has made it possible for the Growatt inverters to mark presence in India.

India’s installed solar capacity has grown significantly from 1.2 GW in 2012 to more than 50 GW as of March in 2022. In 2023, India’s solar expansion continues to gather momentum. Growatt inverters has been a part of this success story, given its residential, C&I, and utility PV installations in the country

Chandigarh in India is well-known for the picturesque lakes and scenic atmosphere, which attracts many tourists to explore the reservoir there. To address the energy needs and align its strategies with carbon neutrality goals while safeguarding the original serenity, the city has pursued the transition to renewable energy.

Inverter Firm Growatt Floating Solar Project in Chandigarh


In 2023, North India’s largest 2 MW floating solar power plant was inaugurated at Chandigarh. It was situated at Water Works, Sector 39, Chandigarh, that supplies water to the entire city. The floating plant uses 16 Growatt inverter under the name MAX 125KTL3-X LV , which is expected to generate 28,00,000 units of electricity annually. The MAX series inverters, one of the standout portfolios from Growatt, delivers high yields and stable returns to investors.

MAX Series

The MAX series of Growatt inverter is a part of the smart three phase inverters. They are compatible with high power and bi-facial modules with maximum DC input current reaching 32A for each MPPT. It also has multiple MPPT inputs to reduce the energy loss caused by shadow effect and module mismatch.

Moreover, it features smart online monitoring and troubleshooting with advanced remote O&M tools for intelligent string monitoring, smart I-V curve scanning and diagnosis for installers. Adapting to various harsh environments, Growatt’s products are endowed with type II SPD on both AC and DC sides, an optional AFCI function, and IP66 protection level that ensures the dust-proof and damp-proof properties.

The generation of this plant can offset 80,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year – an ecological feat equivalent to planting 109,289 trees. In addition to optimizing land use, placing solar panels near water helps lower water evaporation by 382 million liters annually and provides the panels a cooling effect that increases their effectiveness.

The floating solar plant project is a significant milestone in the region’s push towards renewable energy and will serve as a model for other cities to follow.

The firm has also introduced in the country its latest inverter– the ‘MID 33-50KTL3-X2’ , which, it says, is poised to address critical challenges faced by the rapidly developing photovoltaic (PV) industry

Growatt offers C&I as well as large-scale PV solutions covering a wide range and integrating high yields with reliability and intelligence. Besides, Growatt continues to delve into key areas like energy storage, batteries and smart energy management, reinforcing its position among the world’s top 4 PV inverter suppliers.
