Why Choose Solantro

At Solantro it’s our mission to enable grid modernization 

So we designed and manufactured a set of integrated circuits that we believe are the ideal building blocks for next generation grid applications.   Unlike existing integrated circuits, Solantro’s chips were designed and built specifically to measure, process and drive complex power architectures.

 

   

 

What makes our chipset attractive to power electronics, smart grid and renewable energy companies?

 
 
1) Faster Time to Market / Lower CAPEX

Building advanced grid applications (such as micro-inverters, AC battery inverters, DC optimizers) using discrete electronic components is a time-consuming and expensive approach.  New applications can take 12 to 18 months to develop and test using this method.

Solantro’s chipset substantially reduces both time-to-market and capital expenditure because it allows our client-partners to focus on their core expertise – developing & deploying advanced grid applications – instead of spending (non-value-added) time designing & re-designing custom circuits.  

 

 
2) Greater Flexibility & Adaptability

Today, flexibility is just as important as speed.  Currently, modifications to an existing grid application require extensive hardware architecture re-design and testing.  This no longer makes sense in our rapidly changing environment because single-point solutions can quickly become obsolete.

Instead, Solantro’s open API to firmware architecture facilitates plug & play system integration and allows new features to be unlocked via software updates. Through Solantro’s control software, our client-partners’ grid applications become upgradeable assets that have the ability to adapt and evolve even after they've been deployed.

 

 
3) Lower Production Costs  

Solantro’s chipset replaces multiple outdated electronic components with state-of-the-art chips.  This reduces the eBOM in a typical micro-inverter from 300-400 components to 150-200 components thereby significantly reducing costs.  

 

 
4) Improved Grid Stability  

Since Solantro’s chips offer increased reliability over discrete electronic components, our client-partners can offer greater product dependability.  

And, with the intelligence that can be embedded in Solantro’s chipset, distributed sources of power can be recruited automatically – reassigning electrical loads to reflect changing conditions and requirements.  Doing this enables multiple sources of distributed energy to become an interoperable, intelligent and adaptive network.  This reduces the impact of any single point of failure and improves grid stability.
