You can also make a meaningful upgrade to your PV system by adding other power generators. In addition to small wind farms or hydroelectric power plant, diesel generators ensure that your energy demand is covered in the event of poor weather or if your storage capacity is low.
Energy control plays a key role when it comes to an off-grid energy supply. SMA technology therefore ensures that all components are compatible with one another and that the storage system is optimally used. If more solar power is available than needed, then the batteries will be charged. If demand is greater than production, it is covered by the electricity stored in the batteries.
For a mountain cabin, an isolated garden house in the country, a vacation home on an island or for those who just want to be off the grid: SMA’s Off-Grid System allows you to be self-sufficient anywhere and at any time.
As an ideal inverter for small and medium-sized households, the Sunny Boy TL is already bringing high yields in thousands of PV systems worldwide. It comes not only in different power classes, but is also available in a convenient design, for example for simple roof configurations. Thanks to the right communications technology, such as SMA’s Webconnect integrated into the inverter, this data can also be accessed online.
The specialist for medium-sized residential PV systems: Our ultramodern three-phase inverter, the Sunny Tripower, meets the highest technological requirements and comes in different power classes up to 12 kW.
The battery inverter can be retrofitted and is responsible for storing excess power. As part of the SMA Flexible Storage System, the Sunny Island offers the best features for achieving a high self-consumption rate – and thereby more independence from rising electricity costs.
With the flexible Sunny Remote Control operating unit, you can now conveniently commission and monitor battery inverters. The rotary switch enables intuitive operation. The four-line display gives you information on the current system status at a glance.
The energy manager from SMA quickly analyzes all energy flows in your home. Additionally, it “knows” when and for how long the sun will shine thanks to local weather reports. This allows it to recommend the best time, for example, to switch on the washing machine. Integrated access to Sunny Portal ensures almost infinite options for analyzing data and visualizing yields, whether you need a data table or a diagram. The yields of all inverters in a plant are compared automatically, allowing for the detection of even the smallest deviations. The powerful reporting functions also provide regular updates via e-mail to help ensure yields.
