Who are SMA?
SMA is a German solar company founded in 1981 by a team from the University of Kassel and headquartered in Niestetal, Germany.
They are one of the few remaining European Solar companies in the market.
The company has grown to over 5000 employees and over AU$1 billion in revenue, with offices in more than 20 countries and local support available. They are widely considered to be the leaders of the solar inverter industry. Largely due to their strong investment in research and development, with over 700 employees dedicated to this area.
SMA’s biggest achievement is the SMA Sunny Boy inverter, which was first released in 1999. These inverters, while in a different form, are still the core product of their business. They were the first inverter designed for the residential market. If you have a friend or family member with a system over 10 years old and still working, it is likely that it is an SMA.
SMA has won multiple awards, including the 2020 Intersolar award for its Sunny Tripower Core inverter a larger commercial sized inverter solution. The company has also received several other awards, including the EUPD Top Brand PV seal and the Energy Storage North America Innovation Award.

SMA ShadeFix is installed in all SMA inverters. It is their Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) software solution to shade. It will not mitigate shade completely however it will help deliver the maximum performance when shade occurs.
It achieves this by searching for the optimum voltage of the string to deliver the highest power output. It has greater ability over competitors to find the “sweet spot” and can produce up to 20% more power than competitors with similar technologies.
