Sungrow Australia managing director Benson Jiao said: “This is a pivotal moment in Sungrow’s global expansion. Australia is a strategic market for Sungrow and we are well poised to leverage our international leadership position as we continue to build out our diversified product portfolio.”

Sungrow’s best-in-class solar technology has been well-received in the Australian market, with the company reporting record growth, going from 0-10% inverter market share between 2013 and 2015.

“There’s no doubt that Sungrow is setting a new standard for solar manufacturers to compete with. The Australian market is showing increasing demand for high quality, safe and reliable solar and storage technology that represents good value for money. What installers are telling us is that Sungrow’s products are not only priced very competitively but their performance also exceeds expectations in every respect.” said director of strategy for Australia Russell French
