SMA Inverters Power Solar Research at University of Georgia

This post was originally published in 2016. The tips and techniques explained may be outdated.

According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the state of Georgia has major potential when it comes to solar power. Georgia currently has 495 MW of solar energy installed, and recently, Radiance Solar added 1.25 MW of additional solar power to that total for a Georgia Power solar research project being hosted at the University of Georgia.uga-solar-research1

Radiance Solar’s design for the project was built around Georgia’s unique climate and energy needs. It includes Sunny Tripowers, SMA’s reliable, high-performing commercial solution.

“When we began this project, we knew that SMA inverters were easy to design with and would produce significant power,” said James Marlow, CEO and co-founder of Radiance Solar. “Sunny Tripowers are reliable, and we know we can count on the support of SMA Service to keep this project running smoothly.”

This new research site at the university will serve as a real-life classroom, providing project partners with a place to study solar performance and better understand how to bring more solar power to Georgia.

SMA is proud to be part of this great effort.
