Solis was the first publicly owned and listed company (300763.SZ) with a primary focus on string inverters and the first inverter manufacturer to complete PVEL's (Formerly part of DNV-GL) 3rd Party Inverter Reliability Testing in North America. As the first Chinese inverter company to be UL listed in the United States, our inverters are now distributed to most regions, at home and around the world.

Stop by booth #1145 to learn more. 


When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see?  Any educational sessions, pavilions etc. you plan on attending? 

Terence Parker, Solis Compliance/Application Engineer and Intersolar Attendee: My career spans PV manufacturing and inverter manufacturing.  I am always curious to see the latest in inverter accessories, PV modules, interconnection and the latest PV framing/racking.  It's especially interesting in 2023 as Solis looks at UL 3741 certification with existing (and new!) racking and PV module companies.  I will attend as many sessions focusing on inverter / battery installations and the National Electrical Code as possible.  I will also be looking for solutions at booths and in sessions that are addressing customer / inverter communications and DER/grid cybersecurity.   


Alternative Energy is undertaking rapid advancements, be it Solar Power, Energy Storage, or Smart Grid.  Data and Automation is a huge part for many companies, give us an idea on how your company and product is utilizing advancements in data and automation. 

On the residential side, new customers will be communicating with their entire home via the Solis hybrid inverters, smart breakers, and an updated SolisCloud.  Solis manufactures products (Solis Power Hub and new Apps) to give customers much more control and information about decisions they might make for their own energy use.  It will allow home owners to be independent of the grid and able to power the entire home during a power outage. On C&I rooftops, it's all about Solis engineers and designers providing automation tools to customers who will use the inverter/ESS systems for local demand response, peak shaving, TOU, etc.  And for utility-scale systems, new Solis PV string inverters can be dc-coupled to more advanced ESS, so it will optimize investor IRR and function as smart, grid-forming DER to help stabilize the grid.  It's a new mission for the solar energy industry as it scales.  


Give us your thoughts on what the future holds for the solar energy Industry.

The solar energy industry will become the baseline energy source for the US by 2040.  A more distributed energy network with distributed storage will provide greater security and resiliency for homeowners and business owners while reducing pollution and accelerating the efficiency of the existing national utility grid.
