SMA America, the US subsidiary of SMA Solar Technology, has entered into a purchase agreement with residential solar installer Sunrun to be a key supplier for residential PV solutions.
As part of the deal, SMA will provide Sunrun with Sunny Boy-US inverters, SMA's Power+ Solution and Sunny Boy Storage-US inverters as one of several preferred inverter vendors.
