What makes the successor of the world’s best-selling string inverter, the Sunny Boy TL, so special? The new Sunny Boy is more than just a PV inverter. Thanks to the first integrated SMA Smart Connected service, it’s a package that offers true ease and comfort. Find out here how this can benefit you as a PV system operator.
As Solar PV becomes more mainstream, one of the few ways which installers and businesses can create a point of difference in the market is through the service they offer their customers. SMA’s new service offering in Smart Connected provides a way for you (as an Installer or Solar Business) to enhance your connection with your clients, and begin to offer additional services without adding significant costs, effort or expertise by relying on SMA’s intelligent monitoring and diagnosis systems. And best of all, it’s free to both you and your clients. Read below to understand more of the benefits.
Voilà! It is finally happening: The worthy successor of the world’s most successful inverter — the Sunny Boy 3000-5000TL — is now available. The new PV inverter of the Sunny Boy 3.0–5.0 type is suitable for private rooftop installations, 10 kg lighter than its predecessor and is easy to operate via a smartphone. It also comes up with the new service concept, SMA Smart Connected, including the all-inclusive service package.
At Intersolar in Munich, SMA presented the new and completely reworked Sunny Boy inverter family. The new inverter solution in the 3.0/3.6/4.0/5.0 kW power classes not only enables up to 30% savings on energy costs in private households, it also includes a complete service package.
SMA has been making and selling PV inverters for over 30 years. But no product has been installed as often as the Sunny Boy TL: launched in 2008, the one-millionth unit from this product family was sold in June 2015. As a result, the Sunny Boy is the bestselling inverter of its class worldwide. Its total installed output – more than four gigawatts – is enough to replace four typical nuclear power plants. The Sunny Boy TL, in other words, is an SMA symbol of the global energy transition. It is mainly used in single-family homes, proving that photovoltaics has beaten all the odds to enter people’s minds and hearts. The Sunny Boy is the global standard for homeowners who want to contribute to the supply of sustainable energy.
The new Sunny Boy 1.5/2.5 has arrived and will be available starting mid-April 2015*. The PV inverter is suitable for all those who want to tap into the full potential of a small-scale PV system.
