SMA Service rebate for installers

We pay the SMA service rebate to installers for the replacement of a defective inverter. The principle is simple. They support us with work performed under warranty and quickly receive a set fee.


How do I receive the SMA service rebate?

Simply complete the online SMA Service rebate form and attach your Tax Invoice. If you do not have an invoicing facility, please contact SMA. You will be eligible for the SMA Service rebate up on our receipt of both the SMA Service Rebate form and a Tax Invoice.
