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.
More than an inverter - the new Sunny Boy 3.0-5.0 - the next generation of the globally successful Sunny Boy 3000-5000TL. Thanks to its integrated SMA Smart Connected service, this inverter offers true ease and comfort for PV system operators and installers. The automatic inverter monitoring by SMA analyzes inverter operation, immediately informs the installer of irregularities ensuring optimum service and maximum system availability.
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 Storage System, the Sunny Island offers the best features for achieving a high self-consumption rate – and thereby more independence from rising electricity costs.
The energy manager from SMA quickly analyzes all energy flows in your home. Furthermore, it “knows” when and for how long the sun will shine thanks to local weather reports. This allows it to schedule the best time, for example, to switch on the washing machine using the radio-controlled socket.
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.
For professional PV system monitoring, management and data display: The world’s largest online portal for PV systems allows you to analyze measured values and visualize yields at any time, from anywhere.
