Solar Power System by SMA

Easily Produce and Use Your Own Energy

Your PV system produces inexpensive electricity just for you. Use what you need and feed the rest into the utility grid.

With SMA inverters, communication solutions and our comprehensive range of services, you can be sure that your PV system will produce as much solar power as possible.

The benefit to you: Producing your own energy enables you to be more independent from increasing electricity prices. In states that offer net metering, surplus electricity generated by your solar system feeds back into the grid and you receive a credit which can result in thousands of dollars saved yearly.

In addition, with our innovative communication solutions you can monitor your PV system around the clock, control your electricity consumption and compare notes with other PV system owners.

Advantages at a Glance:

  • Save electricity costs
  • Make yourself more independent from rising electricity prices
  • Keep track of your electricity consumption, which gives you an overview and helps you save energy and money
  • Increase the value of your property and protect the environment
  • Upgrade your PV system at any time by adding storage or integrating additional targeted loads

System Setup


The Simple Solution for Clean Energy

PV in its simplest form: PV modules gather sunlight to produce direct current, which the inverter converts to alternating current and is used directly in the home or fed into the utility grid. 

  • Overview at all times: Our monitoring solution allows you to see at any time whether your PV system is running smoothly, your household is using the energy produced, or whether it is being fed into the grid.

  • Environmentally friendly and inexpensive: The power produced on your roof is used directly in your home. You can clean, do laundry, light your home or surf the Internet using the power of the sun.

  • The heart of the photovoltaic system: The inverter converts the direct current produced by PV modules into alternating current. Depending on demand, it is used directly in the home or fed into the utility grid.

Why provide homeowners with an inferior solution?

Many PV systems fall short of providing a complete home energy solution, which is bad for both homeowners and installers. Questionable reliability, troublesome servicing and the lack of a future-proof solution can irritate homeowners and limit an installer’s future revenue stream.

Inefficient, unreliable design

Inefficient, unreliable design

  • Most panel optimizers are operating constantly.
  • They have more components and produce more heat.
  • This means more points to service and a higher likelihood of failure.

Difficult servicing

Difficult servicing

  • Most solar systems have to rely on reactive servicing.
  • Coordinating multiple visits from your installers is a hassle and takes time.
  • The lengthy servicing period results in system downtime and lost energy.

Inflexible system design

Inflexible system design

  • Most solar systems cannot be retrofitted with energy storage.
  • This limitation eliminates future smart home integration.
  • The opportunity to further save on utility bills is lost and system payback is slowed.

What makes the Power+ Solution a superior choice?

The Power+ Solution solves the problems that other PV systems can’t. Homeowners and installers alike benefit from superior reliability, a proactive service strategy and the ability to future-proof a home with flexible energy storage opportunities.
