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. It was 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.
Solectria has transitioned its name to Yaskawa - Solectria Solar after being acquired by Yaskawa America, Inc. in 2014. Yaskawa – Solectria Solar is the #1 commercial PV inverter supplier in the U.S. Solectria’s products include 3.8 to 750 kW inverters, string combiners and web-based monitoring for all size solar systems. Solectria is backed by over 100 years of power electronics and inverter experience. All of Solectria’s three-phase central inverters are made in the USA. PV System owners, developers and EPCs rely on the high performance, reliability and bankability of Yaskawa – Solectria Solar.
Yaskawa - Solectria Solar is headquartered in Lawrence, Massachusetts, but has additional offices in Huntington Beach, California; Berkeley, California; Jacksonville, Florida; Phoenix, Arizona; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and serve the North, Central and South American PV inverter markets.
