We are pleased to communicate to our partners and friends that GoodWe has been honored this week with the TÜV Rheinland's 2019 "All Quality Matters" award in recognition for the outstanding quality of its two inverter models, DSS on-grid residential inverter and ET three-phase energy storage inverter. This is the fourth consecutive year that GoodWe is recognized with this prestigious award, providing solid evidence that quality has consistently been over the years a key element in the mission that inspire it. Worth mentioning is that GoodWe is the only company that has won this award four years in a row!

3. Max. Output Power: the DSS proved on this test to be able to comprehensively improve the AC output capability, generating more power thanks to its ability to support 1.1 times rated power output for extended periods.
Apart from its strong performance, this series was also awarded with the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for its beautiful aesthetics and user-friendly design with a color touch screen LCD display. And it is in-built with Connector Temperature Sensor and Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCIs) which provides high-level safety.
