According to reports, REFUsol GmbH, a manufacturer of solar inverters, will start local production of its products from the end of this year and first deliveries by early 2012. This manufacturing facility will be located in Pune, where it has already set up a customer support office.
REFUsol displayed some of its light, compact and powerful string inverters at the recently concluded 5th Renewable Energy India 2011 Expo in New Delhi.
Its three-phase string inverters with power classes from 8 to 20kW are suitable for indoor and outdoor use and for installations ranging from small rooftop systems to large solar parks. Featuring an MPP-tracking and a wide input voltage range of up to 380 to 850V, the solar inverters achieve a peak efficiency of up to 98.2%, even at low irradiation levels.

It is also available as a basic and a professional version and as a smartphone app (Android and iOS versions).
