SMA America recently hosted an exclusive forum to discuss utility-scale storage & PV solutions. The event, which took place in San Francisco during Intersolar, drew a great crowd, and SMA executives talked with customers about the current utility market, opportunities for storage and SMA’s large-scale storage solution. Guests from Siemens Energy Management also presented at the event.
And this is just the start of SMA’s road trip. Starting this month, the company is hosting a nationwide road show to showcase its Sunny Tripower CORE1 — a free-standing PV inverter for commercial installations. It is designed to provide up to 60 percent faster installation for commercial PV systems – a revolutionary development for commercial rooftop, carport and ground-mount PV projects. The tour will include 17 stops throughout the U.S. and will teach installers how to install, wire and commission the CORE1.
“The current solar market is highly competitive, and industry professionals are looking for solutions that they can install quickly and efficiently – and more importantly, that they can count on to operate reliably, without extra maintenance or failure risk,” said Nick Morbach, executive vice president of SMA’s Residential & Commercial business unit. “Integrators can see firsthand the simple installation, reduced components and reliable performance of the CORE1 at one of the road show stops.”
