The long-reigning market share leader in residential solar inverters, SMA goes back a long way (at least in PV industry terms). This global company started in Germany in 1981 and has world headquarters in Niestetal (central Germany) and US headquarters in Rocklin, California. It is famous for its German-engineered, solid-performing string inverters. While all SMA inverters continue to be designed in Germany, its industrial Sunny Central line, its off-grid Sunny Island line and its 3-7kw Sunny Boy grid-tie inverters have been produced in Denver since 2010--its first production facility outside of Germany.
SolarPanelStore.com has been selling SMA residential inverters for years. The Sunny Boy line is a staple of our grid-tie inverters: transformer-less, highly-efficient, pure sine wave, wide variety of power outputs (from 3000 to 11000 watts), wide input voltage range, innovative and convenient.
The Secure Power Supply is a great example of SMA inverter innovation. Many models in the Sunny Boy line offer this handy connected, dedicated electrical outlet that provides emergency day-time AC power from the solar array. Considering that grid-tied inverters shut down when the grid goes down, this is truly a convenient innovation for homeowners.
Sunny Boy also offers Sunny Boy microinverters, Sunny Island off-grid inverter/chargers, and Sunny TriPower commercial grade inverters for business needs, and the Sunny Central utility-scale inverters, plus a myriad of data monitoring and other accessories, it's easy to see that SMA is a well-established full-portfolio solar PV player. Let us help you find the SMA solar inverters and equipment you need!
