"With the rollout of our new Authorized Distributor program, it was critical that SMA partner with leaders in the industry that were capable of providing world-class technology and expert service," said Henry Dziuba, president and general manager of SMA America. "Kyocera is known as an industry pioneer and has been providing the solar community with reliable, high-value solutions for many years. It was a natural fit."

Kyocera is now distributing SMA's newest products such as the Sunny Boy 3000TL-US/4000TL-US/5000TL-US transformerless residential inverter, and the Sunny TripowerTL-US -- a 1,000 V DC, UL listed three-phase transformerless commercial inverter.

"The inverter is a crucial component of any PV solar solution, taking the solar power that our reliable, high-quality panels harness and converting it into usable energy for the home and office, or transferring that energy into the grid for use elsewhere," said Steve Hill, president, Kyocera Solar Inc.
