SMA America supplies North America with the world’s finest inverter and control products for renewable energy sources, primarily solar.
SMA America, Inc. is the western-hemisphere arm of global solar giant SMA Technologie AG, based in Germany. SMA America’s endeavor is to supply North America with the world’s finest inverter and control products for renewable energy sources, primarily solar. As the world leader in inverter technology and manufacturing, SMA provides more than three gigawatts of power around the globe from clean sources such as sun, wind, and water. Over the past 26 years, SMA’s academic background, forward-thinking technology and bold entrepreneurial vision have allowed the global leader in solar technology to expand across four continents.
SMA was founded in 1981 from research activities originally conducted at the University in Kassel—a German city at the heart of the renewable energy revolution. Twenty-five years ago, however, “renewable energy” was hardly discussed, and it was an uphill struggle to convince people that homes, businesses, and institutions could actually generate their own electricity, either for primary usage or backup in the event of grid failures (a.k.a., blackouts).
