Their corporate headquarters are in Shenzhen, a city that is just to the north of Hong Kong and has a population that is roughly equivalent to that of Australia. When the business was established in 1987, it started disassembling foreign electronics to learn how to build them. Then they paid representatives to guarantee certain their parts were utilized. Their dedication to reverse engineering and creative bribes paid off, and today they are the second-biggest maker of cellphones in the world as well as the leading producer of telecoms equipment.
According to capacity measured in gigawatts, Huawei, a massive Chinese corporation, is the world’s largest producer of solar inverters. This fact is not widely known in this country, but it is not unexpected given that their Australian website features a woman with horrifically high cheekbones and makes no mention of inverters at all.
The SUN2000l inverters come with a 5-year full replacement warranty, and for an extra 5-year period after that, they will repair faulty inverters or offer free components but not labor. This warranty is superior to the typical solar inverter warranty, which often only provides 5 years of full replacement. The warranty period for new inverters will last for the duration of the original guarantee or 12 months, whichever is longer. This is an intriguing and practical feature. This clause hasn’t shown in any other inverter warranty that I can think of.
The future belongs to Huawei
Huge corporation Huawei is probably not about to go out of business. Although large corporations can rise and fall, it is difficult to imagine Huawei declining quickly enough to cease to exist and fulfill warranties in ten years. However, if you want to ensure that you receive only the best warranty service, be sure to always speak positively about the Chinese government around your inverter.
