What does the background say about SolaX inverter?

Like most of the inverter companies, the SolaX was bootstrapped in China in 2010 with an intention to create the environmental and economical-friendly inverters. When it was established in China, it remained under-rated as quite a few inverter manufacturers were dominating the solar industry. However, an economical-friendly battery ready X-hybrid inverter had brought rapid fame and recognition in the solar community. If you don’t know what the battery-ready and hybrid inverters are, then check out the various types of inverters.

The-SolaX-Power-Company-Timeline

SolaX is a subsidiary company of Suntellite Group in China, having more than six offices worldwide with over 500 global employees currently working in the company. These offices are based in the USA, UK, Netherlands, Germany, and Australia. Having been in the forefront of the solar-based renewable energy to drive the population to use it to reduce the use of the fossil fuels, SolaX has harnessed the expertise and robust technology to smear into the solar inverter world, committed to serving the users by providing some of the unique, elusive, affordable and modern inverters. Apart from this SolaX inverter review, you can also check out some of the Cyanergy’s other inverter review to visualise the scenario.

SolaX has installed over 600000 inverters which sum up to a total of 6GW worldwide; it all became possible by dint of its strong participation in the R&D to help improve their existing products and skilled workforce. Hence, the use of a SolaX inverter in the modern solar industry is a boon.
 

Why to buy SolaX inverters?

Any inverter becomes appealing when it standouts with its remarkable quality, durability, its performance in the peak temperature, its affordability, and its versatility. Luckily, SolaX is a complete package with all the innovations and latest technology built around it. Not just the 5-years company warranty with an additional 5 years warranty claim for a competitive price is a grace, but rather its meantime for failure is 100,000 hours, which is hugely praised. These hours represent that this inverter, regardless of what the warranty states, is expected to function for over 11 years before wearing away.

Not just that, SolaX is also famous for rigorously testing and designing their inverters – ensuring that their products meet the highest international standards to suit for use in a country like Australia where the inverter, with the slightest fault, can spoil at any time. Hence, the need for the right manufacturing process is cardinal to produce some of the finest and durable inverters.

SolaX R&D facility is so stunning and impressive to bring out some of the momentous inverters that they have recently associated with the Zhejiang University, one of the prestigious research universities in China; home to a silicon material laboratory in China’s ‘Silicon Valley’. With the help their expertise and skilled orientation, they are producing some of the competitive inverters, which are competing for side by side with the top-notch European, in fact, top-class Chinese manufacturers in an unruly way.
