Recent months have made it clear that the Biden Administration’s embrace of the ‘Green Economy,’ and especially the clean energy sector, is far more than just skin deep.
The administration, from the Inflation Reduction Act signed last August to more recent multi-billion-dollar funding initiatives, has been going all-in on clean energy. The Biden White House has been promoting electric vehicles, pushing for solar and wind-powered energy production, and implementing tax and regulatory incentives to accelerate the shift from fossil fuel-powered energy to green alternatives.

SolarEdge has a true edge in this field, with approximately 40% market share in the US microinverter business.
In addition to microinverters, SolarEdge has its hand in a wide array of solar technology product lines. The company produces monitoring systems for photovoltaic installations, power optimizers, and even specialized solar-powered EV charging stations for residential use. SolarEdge sells these products directly to residential and commercial markets, with its customer base including retail customers, building owners, small…
