SmartSpark Energy Systems Becomes SolarBridge

Austin-based SmartSpark Energy Systems said Monday that it has renamed the firm SolarBridge Technologies. The firm said the move came as it has revised its strategy to focus exclusively on microinverter and monitoring solutions for photovoltaic installations. The firm was previously located in Champaign, Illinois. SolarBridge's products are used to eliminate what the firm said are the most failure prone components for inverters, which are used to convert DC solar power into AC power used in homes.
