ROCKLIN, Calif., June 2, 2015 — SMA has rolled out a rebate program for its Sunny Boy 240-US micro inverter. Installers can now receive $10 cash back for each Sunny Boy 240-US purchased in the United States through December 31, 2015, with no quantity limitations.
Redeeming the rebate is simple and can be completed in two easy steps. First, installers must purchase the Sunny Boy 240-US from a participating SMA Authorized Distributor. Then, they must submit purchase information along with the receipt to SMA before the end of the following calendar month. Once that is received, SMA will mail a rebate check within 90 days directly to the installer.
“With each purchase of the Sunny Boy 240-US, installers will receive SMA’s legendary reliability, American-assembled quality and more cash back in their pockets,” said Henry Dziuba, president and general manager of SMA America. “These benefits translate into significant short-term margins and long-term O&M savings.”
The Sunny Boy 240-US is ideal for residential systems and rooftops with complex, shaded situations. It boasts an improved cabling concept that eliminates the need for a trunk and branch cabling scheme, increasing flexibility. Simple installation is achieved by pre-assembled AC plugs and connection cables used in a daisy chain configuration.
Furthermore, the Sunny Boy 240-US includes the exclusive Sunny Multigate-US, which provides reliable, distortion-free communication between the micro inverter and Sunny Portal by keeping the powerline communications on a private band. This groundbreaking technology enables greater energy production and superior reliability by mitigating the damaging effects of temperature-related stress commonly found under a module. The result is a drastically reduced failure rate when compared to other micro inverters.
The Sunny Boy 240-US is available via a streamlined ordering process and with warranty options that can be easily upgraded to 20 years with minimal investment.
