Solectria Renewables, LLC was established in January 2005 with corporate offices (including manufacturing and design of its three-phase central inverters) at 360 Merrimack Street, Lawrence, Massachusetts.
Solectria Renewables is a spinoff from Solectria Corporation, an electric and hybrid vehicle company which was founded by Anita Worden and James Worden in 1989, to focus solely on the development and sales of grid-tied photovoltaic (PV) inverters.
Today, Solectria Renewables is the 5th largest grid-tied PV inverter, string combiner and web-based monitoring manufacturer for residential, commercial and utility-scale solar projects in the USA. Solectria became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yaskawa Americas, Inc. in July 2014. Solectria’s wide range of products include 3.8kW to 750kW grid-tied inverters for systems ranging in size from 3kW to multi-MWs. Solectria is backed by over 100 years of power electronics and inverter experience. All of Solectria’s three-phase central and utility-scale inverters are made in the U.S.A. and listed to UL 1741/IEEE 1547. PV system owners, developers, distributors, contractors, financiers and EPCs rely on the high performance, reliability and bankability of Solectria as well as its broad range of products and robust Operations and Maintenance (O&M) services. Solectria offers its customers the most competitive levelized cost of energy (LCOE) and the highest efficiency products in the PV industry today.
Solectria Renewables is still headquartered in Lawrence, Massachusetts, but has added offices in Huntington Beach, California; Berkeley, California; Jacksonville, Florida; and Denver, Colorado and serves both the North and South American PV inverter markets.
