The right solution for every application
As the worldwide market leader, SMA develops and manufactures the solar industry’s most efficient inverters for photovoltaic systems of any size, power class and grid specification – from kilowatt to megawatt.
SMA - Energy that Changes
Solar inverters are the most important technological component of every photovoltaic power plant. Inverters are intelligent system managers that not only convert direct current generated by photovoltaic modules into grid-compliant alternating current, but also control yields and regulate the grid.
SMA is foremost in producing industry-leading inverters for grid-tied and off-grid PV systems. In addition to their best-in-class efficiencies, SMA inverters are renowned for their reliability and cost effectiveness.
German Engineering. At home in South Africa.
SMA has a strong commitment to the South African PV market and supports the local economic development efforts of the South African government. In June 2012 we have installed a subsidiary with 50% Black management and a BEE Level of 4. SMA offers locally produced medium voltage components and is thereby in a position to provide a local content share of up to 30%.
SMA is strongly committed to further increase the share of local content and to generate local jobs. Currently we evaluate the local sourcing of inverter components and options for a local production. The strategic goal is to supply products of the highest quality out of a local production facility. We will keep the market informed on action steps taken.
