Tech Tip: Installation of the Sunny Boy Smart Energy

From Sascha Jacobi (guest post) on July 17, 2014 in Category Energy Management with 16 Comments

The current SMA Tech Tip shows how quickly and easily the new Sunny Boy Smart Energy can be installed as part of the SMA Integrated Storage System.

The Sunny Boy Smart Energy combines a modern photovoltaic inverter and a storage system and is, along with the Sunny Home Manager, one of the core components of the simplest storage solution currently available for residential applications.

Our colleague Jan explains how it works in the new video.

Happy watching.

    Could you tell me if the Smart Energy works as a No-Break system? Does it still work when there is a blackout ?

      Hi Matthias,
      thanks for your question. The Sunny Boy Smart Engergy does not work as no-break system, but our SMA Flexible Storage System.
      Please ask your installer for more details and which devices would be the best for your PV system. He knows your local conditions.

      Best regards and have a nice weekend.

    I definitely want to go total solar in my house in Enugu Nigeria. My output requirement is 5Kv Inverter for my 5000Watt total usage. I am presently living in Mainz Germany and in the process of a partial relocation to Enugu Nigeria. Do you have a sales representative in that Part of Nigeria or must I have to bye the system and transport it myself to my destination ?
    Note: I will also appreciate a hookup with one of your tech. Sales person for a more in depth knowledge on how I can best actualize my project.

    I want to install a 5KVA system for my house based on a survey of my requirements
    Evidently I need 8ooAh of battery capacity
    Would you have an inverter/charger available that would also meet my future PV requirements
    Do you have Sunny Boy unit that will meet these requirements
    How much will it cost to supply and install?

    Dear Sir,
    I would like to provide electricity to a building with two apartments.
    Both apartments will be provided electricity by a single kit. I want a
    kit that is hybrid. That means with possibility of being recharged by
    solar panels or public electricity (or generator).

    Each apartment has following equipment:

    2 x Refrigerator/Freezer.
    1 x Laptop
    1 x Desktop
    1 x TV
    12 x Light
    1 x Washing machine
    1 x Iron.

    Kindly suggest a kit which can support the above load, multiply by two
    (two apartments). If possible an expandable system with growing power
    Best Regards,
