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.
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.

SMA is working hard to put the finishing touches on what is sure to be our most exciting exhibit to date at this year’s Solar Power International show in Las Vegas, September 12-15. Our Powerful Partners booth (#959) will showcase game-changing residential and commercial solutions and strategic partnerships that were developed with the North American market in mind, making it easier for our customers to do business while reducing their costs. That includes our newest inverters and O&M offerings, all of which will be on display for the first time in the U.S.
The Catalagan Solar Farm on the Philippine island of Luzon was commissioned in March. At 63 MW, it is one of the world’s largest photovoltaic plants including string inverters, supplying solar power to the entire western part of the Batangas province. Spread over approximately 160 hectares (about 400 acres), the solar farm includes more than 200,000 PV modules, along with 830 Sunny Tripower 60 inverters and 23 SMA Inverter Managers.
S.L. Horsford and Co. Ltd., based in Basseterre, St. Kitts – an island in the Caribbean West Indies — is a diversified company involved in multiple trading, service and manufacturing activities through its various operating departments, subsidiaries and associated companies. Established in 1875, S.L. Horsford knows the key to longevity in a sometimes volatile business climate: evolve with the times and keep the customer’s best interests at heart. That’s why it decided to commission photovoltaic systems for several of its businesses. Not only will it significantly reduce its energy consumption and carbon footprint, but this initiative will also increase the performance of the company as a whole while placing it in an even better position to pass on benefits and savings to their loyal customer base.
See what all of the buzz is about! The new Sunny Tripower TL-US is raising the bar when it comes to decentralized PV plants. The Sunny Tripower TL-US is a three-phase transformerless inverter, suitable for both 600 V DC and 1,000 V DC applications.
