As a system technology specialist, SMA has been developing and distributing high-quality PV inverters and innovative technology for intelligent energy management for over 30 years. Our technology and service solutions for all Photovoltaic applications offer users more efficiency and independence in meeting their energy needs.
We've always pushed the boundaries of solar technology, ever since our founders took one look at a string inverter and knew they could do better. We're still at it. We're passionate about developing new technologies that make energy more intelligent, more connected and more cost effective than ever before.
Solectria Renewables, LLC was established in January 2005 with corporate offices (including manufacturing and design of its three-phase central inverters) at 360 Merrimack Street, Lawrence, Massachusetts. It was a spinoff from Solectria Corporation, an electric and hybrid vehicle company which was founded by Anita Worden and James Worden in 1989, to focus solely on the development and sales of grid-tied photovoltaic (PV) inverters.
SolarEdge invented an intelligent inverter solution that revolutionized the way power is harvested and managed in a solar photovoltaic (PV) system. The SolarEdge direct current (DC) optimized inverter system maximizes power generation at the individual PV module level while lowering the cost of energy produced by the solar PV system.
Addressing a broad range of solar market segments, from residential solar installations to commercial and small utility-scale solar installations, the SolarEdge system consists of inverters, power optimizers, storage solutions, and a cloud-based monitoring platform.
