Meanwhile, the emerging of Chint Power Systems completed the vertical integration of the energy industry supply chain for CHINT GROUP which gained the CHINT GROUP’s full attention with full support as well.


Grid-tie PV inverters are the major products of Chint Power Systems at its first stage. As the new energy industry becomes one of the emerging leading industries of the global market in the long-term, a series of investment activities have been conducted by the Chint Group since 2006. Firstly, CHINT Solar was established, with its factory set up in Hangzhou for R&D and manufacturing of solar panel modules in 2006. Then in 2009, CHINT Electrics made investment in Shanghai, focusing on the power electronics field including PV inverters. In 2009, the newest division, Chint Power Systems, was established. The power electronic technologies, low-voltage products, and high-voltage transmission and distribution projects, all rolled into one, makes CHINT GROUP a most promising competitor in new energy industry in future.
