Season’s Greetings and a Happy New Year!

Thanks to Greta Thunberg and the Fridays for Future movement, climate change has found its way to the top of the global agenda. And rightly so! We at SMA have spent almost 40 years working to expand renewable energies. However, we are now taking the opportunity to catch our breath as we close the SMA headquarters in Germany for the holidays. Read on for all the information on how to reach SMA between December 20, 2019, and January 1, 2020. We also have a little surprise for you 😊.

Photovoltaics Is Becoming the World’s Most Cost-Effective Energy Source

Less than USD 25 per megawatt-hour of solar power — these kinds of prices are not uncommon any more in sunny regions. Thanks to its continuously falling costs, photovoltaics is on the right track to becoming the world’s most cost-effective source of energy. It thus totally makes environmental and financial sense to build new PV systems rather than continue to rely on conventional power plants.
