Introduction

The SMA Integrated Storage System is the simplest way to integrate battery storage into a solar PV system. With the Sunny Boy Smart Energy's built in battery no technical battery knowledge is necessary.

SMA's Home Manager and Energy Meter monitor how much energy is being generated, consumed and whether there is any excess going back into the grid. With this information the Home Manager can intelligently instruct the Sunny Boy Smart Energy to store the generation in batteries or alternatively additional loads can be turned on via the SMA Radio Controlled Sockets. All this means the owner of the solar PV system/property can save on electricity bills and maximise their ROI (return on investment).

For systems that require larger batteries, 3-phase, back-up power or a retrofit solution take a look at the SMA Flexible Storage System.

Features

  • ideal solution for new PV installations
  • storage of surplus solar energy for later consumption
  • all PV power generated is used
  • automatic load management possible
  • compact installation
