Solectria Renewables Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary and Thanks Its Customers

Solectria Renewables, LLC, a leading U.S. PV inverter manufacturer, announced today that February 2015 marks the Company's 10 year anniversary.

Lawrence, MA – February 3, 2015 – Solectria Renewables, LLC, a leading U.S. PV inverter manufacturer, announced today that February 2015 marks the Company's 10 year anniversary.


Ten years ago, Solectria co-founders Anita Worden, James Worden, Aybike Crott and Michael Zuercher-Martinson, pioneers in DC to AC power electronics, left the electric vehicle business and set out in a small, 5,000 square foot office space, to develop a company to be a leader in PV inverters.

Today, Solectria Renewables occupies almost 100,000 square feet of space in Lawrence, Massachusetts, where it still manufactures its three-phase central inverters. Although in the same building, much has changed at Solectria: it is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yaskawa, a $4B global manufacturer of inverters, motors and automation equipment; the Company has grown from 4 employees to almost 200; and has become one of the largest inverter manufacturers in North America.

"Solectria's 10 year anniversary is a tremendous milestone for the Company. Over the past 10 years, we have introduced many innovative inverter technologies, string combiners and monitoring systems and remained an industry leader," said Anita Worden, CEO of Solectria Renewables. She continued, "We remain focused on the needs of our customers and thank them for their loyalty to our brand and products. We also thank our loyal and dedicated staff. I am extremely proud to be a part of Solectria and look forward to our continued growth, now as a Yaskawa Company."

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
