Living off-grid requires special consideration to power requirements. SMA offers technology that allows off-grid enthusiast to integrate solar with additional power sources. The SMA Sunny Island can incorporate power from solar, small wind turbines, hydroelectric power plants, or diesel generators to ensure that your energy demand is covered in the event of poor weather or if your reserves are empty.
Energy control also plays a key role when it comes to an off-grid energy supply. SMA technology 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, the batteries will be charged. If demand is greater than production, the electrical loads are supplied by 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.
Monitors, plans, controls: The Sunny Home Manager controls power generation quickly, becomes familiar with all the energy flows in your home and uses intelligent planning to harmonize power generation and consumption schedules. Using the optional SMA radio-controlled sockets, household appliances, such as your washing machine or dishwasher, can be automatically controlled.
The Sunny Boy-US features Secure Power Supply, which now delivers up to 2,000 W of opportunity power when the grid goes down and the sun is shining. Installation has never been easier thanks to SMA’s Installation Assistant, direct access via smartphone, and integrated DC disconnect. Independent input channels, each with OptiTrac™ Global Peak MPP tracking, mean hundreds of stringing configurations while solving the challenges of complex roofs and shading. Through innovative improvements, the Sunny Boy US helps you decrease costs throughout all stages of the project cycle.
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.
Off-grid systems perform demanding tasks and must be supported by a capable provider. With more than 35 years of experience, no one is more qualified than SMA. Talk to your installer about SMA’s warranty and support programs and choose the plan that best suits your needs.
