TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 6, 2011) - Sungrow Canada Inc. ("Sungrow"), a North American leader in solar photovoltaic inverters and Sustainable Energy Technologies Ltd (TSX VENTURE:STG) ("Sustainable Energy" or the "Company") a Canadian solar inverter company introduced their new Sungrow-Sunergy hybrid PV Inverter solution geared towards the commercial rooftop market at the Canadian Solar Industry Association annual conference and exhibition in Toronto Ontario Canada.

The innovative hybrid PV Inverter solution can address any rooftop size larger than 100kW and offers significant performance and design advantages over other central PV Inverters. These advantages include:

  • The ability to easily match AC nameplate rating to any array size;
  • Shade tolerant solutions to maximize utilization of available rooftop space;
  • Single system monitoring of multiple generators; and
  • Industry leading cost per watt.

Sustainable Energy also announced a new "48 hour" uptime warranty for all Ontario SUNERGY inverters which will significantly increase system availability and deliver overall higher lifetime investment returns for project owners. SUNERGY is reporting peak efficiencies above 97% and 99.8% product reliability. SUNERGY is the only CSA/UL listed inverter is its power class rated from -40C to +50C.

Solar Canada 2011 is CanSIA's annual conference and exposition, which takes place Dec 5-6th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto. Sustainable and SunGrow are showcasing the Sungrow-Sunergy hybrid PV Inverter at booth number 1012.

About Sustainable Energy:

Sustainable Energy ( is Canada's solar inverter company. The Company's patented inverter technologies are a breakthrough in power inverter design and capabilities for all forms of distributed generation and smart grid applications.

The SUNERGY inverter is the industry's only grid-interactive solar inverter which enables a "parallel" solar PV system architecture in higher power ratings at a cost and serviceability factor that is comparable to other conventional inverters in the market. The benefits of parallel solar are: (i) 5% - 25% higher total system power output; (ii) a better fill factor enabling better coverage of available space; (iii) simplified system design and installation; and (iv) the safety of extra low operating voltages which ensures the safety of building maintenance personnel, first responders, and tradesmen who may accidentally come into contact with system wiring.

Sustainable Energy's technologies are the subject of multiple patents issued by and pending with the Canadian and US Patent Offices.
