    OT: SMA Solar Technology

    SMA Solar Technology filed their interim financial report for the period 1 January 2012 through 30 September 2012 today. The full report is available on their corporate site.

    Some highlights:

    They're still profitable (around 0.062 Euro / Share for the quarter), and sticking to their fiscal year projections. However, inverter sales were down compared with last (2Q 2012) quarter-326.7M vs 428.7M Euros, 1841MW vs 2144MW. ASP was down slightly as well, 0.197 Euro / W vs 0.200. Not bad altogether, but this is the first quarter since 2Q 2011 that their sales have fallen below 400M Euros.

    There's a good, comprehensive review of the European FIT situation in the management discussion.

    Also there is a discussion of an emerging interest in solar-diesel hybrid systems. I'm assuming that, for the present, this is oriented toward stability / emergency power systems, but might develop as primary self-generation in some locations.

    LDK affiliate Sunways is scheduled to report on 13 November.
