California, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] The inverter manufacturer SMA America, Inc., has partnered with SunEdison as one of the sponsors of the upcoming SunEdison City Tour for Solar — a 100-day, 50-city educational tour that will teach municipal leaders, energy companies and the public about solar power. The tour, which consists of two mobile exhibits traveling across the Western U.S., kicked off Aug. 1 in Golden, Colorado, and will conclude in Sacramento, California, on November 14.
Each mobile exhibit will feature a fully functioning photovoltaic (PV) system and various hands-on displays designed for public interaction. SMA’s display will include its Sunny Boy 6000US inverter, which highlights the inner workings of the heart of the PV system.
“SMA is excited to be a part of the SunEdison City Tour for Solar,” says Jurgen Krehnke, president and general manager of SMA America. “As the world leader in solar inverter technology, educating the public about the benefits of harvesting and using solar power is a top priority.”
