SMA has now supplied more than 20 gigawatts of inverter power and power storage for large-scale systems in North America. The inverter manufacturer Hessian Niestetal has thus reached a new milestone in the company’s history. Power electronics – sometimes combined with storage systems – are installed in some 1,400 different photovoltaic projects spread across 40 US states and four Canadian provinces. “We are pleased that SMA solutions for solar and battery storage applications are so successful in the US and Canadian markets,” says Boris Wolff, Head of Sales and Service at SMA.

So the company is on the right track, says Wolff, and will continue to follow it. “We are grateful for the trust our customers in the photovoltaic and large-scale storage segment have placed in SMA,” says Jay Argestani, responsible for the large-scale and commercial systems business at SMA Americas. Among other things, he attributes this to the many years of expertise that SMA has accumulated in the meantime and which is particularly important in the large-scale plant business when it comes to which components are installed.

Argestani stressed that SMA will further develop the system in order to be able to always play a leading role in terms of technology. “In this way, the company seeks to meet customer demands for future-proof energy supply solutions and minimize risk throughout the entire life cycle of the project. In the segment of large solar power plants, SMA storage and networking of various SMA’s solutions also enable the provision of grid system services to more easily and securely integrate solar power plants into the supply grid and also contribute to system stability.
