SolarBridge Technologies, formerly SmartSpark Energy Systems, was founded in 2004 to commercialize power electronics technologies created at the University of Illinois. In early 2009, they launched a new corporate strategy to focus exclusively on the solar industry with microinverter and monitoring solutions. SolarBridge Technologies has a major research and development site in Champaign, Illinois and has recently expanded to include a new corporate headquarters in Austin, Texas. Led by industry veterans and academic professionals, their mission is to reduce the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) for solar installations by dramatically improving reliability, increasing energy production, and simplifying installation.
