Chinese inverter manufacturer GoodWe has announced the launch of its new NS-Series inverters.

The new inverter series has been designed with residential projects in mind with all models single-MPPT and single-phase, covering 1kW, 1.5kW and 2kW.

The company claims that the NS series compares favourably to other inverters in the 1-2kW power class due to its small footprint and light weight. The inverter weighs 8kg and is 338x272x128mm in size.

In addition, GoodWe claims that the inverter boasts both the lowest startup voltage of 80V and the widest voltage range from 80 to 400V. The company hopes that these attributes will work as a ‘substantial differentiator’ for the UK market.

The company is aiming to lift its annual production capacity from 1,000MW to 3,000MW in the near future.
