SMA and SolarEdge solar inverter businesses booming, on back of United States growth
Los Angeles CA (SPX) Feb 09, 2016
SMA and SolarEdge both reported strong revenue and profit growth in their recent earnings calls, on the back of significant success in the Unites States PV market. While both suppliers noted that they have diversified PV inverter portfolios and broad geographical presences, in reality they are quite dependent on the United States to increase growth in the next two to three years. While the United States is likely to continue to be a strong source of revenue this year, there are some strong headwin ... read more
