SMA wins 17.5 MW inverter order for commercial-scale PV installations

SoCore Energy selects SMA's 'Sunny Tripower' inverters for 44 movie theater, shipping and retail locations across the US.

SoCore Energy, a leader in solar portfolio development and commercial rooftop installations, has chosen SMA to supply 17.5 MW of commercial-scale inverters. Specifically, SoCore chose the Sunny Tripower TL-US three-phase, transformerless inverter1 for 44 PV projects by Fortune 500 companies nationwide.

More than 730 inverters have been delivered and will energize some of the most well-known movie theater, shipping and retail chains in the United States. All of the projects will be online by early this year. Located in six states across the U.S., the installations will have an average system size of 410 kW and will be powered by the Sunny Tripower 20000TL-US and 24000TL-US.
“Our Fortune 500 customers expect the best, so quality and reliability are paramount,” said Pete Kadens, president of SoCore. “Not only does the Sunny Tripower fulfill these needs, but the fact that they are manufactured domestically allows us to meet the very tight timelines these projects require.”

The Sunny Tripower TL-US offers design flexibility, high efficiency and enhanced safety, making it the ideal solution for decentralized commercial PV plants. Also available in 12 and 15 kilowatt models, the Sunny Tripower TL-US boasts peak efficiency of more than 98 percent while its OptiTrac™ Global Peak maximum power point (MPP) tracking algorithm further maximizes energy production by minimizing the effects of shade.
