Solis Powers 4MWs of Solar for Walmart in Mexico

PVTIME - Ginlong Technologies (Stock Code: 300763.SZ), a global leader in
photovoltaic string inverter manufacturing, has fitted eight new solar systems
at Walmart stores across Mexico with a total installed capacity of 4MWs.
Providing 99% efficiency, the high-performing Solis 60kW inverter delivers safe
and reliable technology to participating stores.

The Walmart installations were connected to the grid during
January in four Mexican cities – Aguascalientes, León Guanajuato, Puebla Bino
and Salamanca. Generating an estimated 5.7 million kWrs of clean, renewable
energy annually, these systems will remove approximately 4 million metric tons
of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, an equivalent of powering nearly 500 thousand

“Supplying PV for Walmart in Mexico is an exciting
milestone for Solis,” says Eric Zhang, Head of International Sales for Ginlong
Solis. “As one of the first inverter manufacturers in Mexico since 2012, we’re
excited to bring our industry-leading reliability to urban green solar roofs,
improving air quality and supporting Mexico’s transition to a carbon-free

Designed for commercial rooftops, Solis 60kWh’s compact
footprint includes a separate wiring box, efficiently decreasing install labor
time and cost. Boasting superior reliability, Solis 60kW delivers best-of-class
life span, validated by third-party performance labs. Its world-renowned tier-1
components and robust manufacturing processes include stringent inspection and
quality controls, resulting in a less than 2% failure rate. Built for safety,
Solis 60kW comes with AC and DC class II lightning protection as well as remote
firmware upgrades for high security and easy O&M.

“These Solis-powered systems for Walmart are a true example
of sustainable development,” says Sergio Rodríguez, Ginlong’s service engineer
for Mexico and Central America. “Not only will these PV systems meet each
store’s daytime energy needs, they also support Walmart’s progress toward its
goal of 50% renewable energy supply by 2025. This will have a notable impact on
the supermarket giant’s considerable electric usage and costs.”
