    I want to set up a stand-alone system off-grid. I have one Sunny Island 8.0h and two Sunny Boy 5.0 and a battery bank with VRLA batterys with 120kwh.

    Question; if the batteries are fully charged, and there are no loads applied, and the PV installation with the Sunny Boys is still producing energy, what will happen with this engery?

    Thanks Jarno.

      Correction to the above:

      Is it possible to set up a Sunny Island – 11 6.0H that is equipped with an ethernet card via Sunny Explorer in this way?
      Or is there an additional application that is needed to do this?

        Hello Benno,
        to set up a Sunny Island 6.0H-11 you need the additional Sunny Remote Control. Without the Sunny Remote Control it is not possible to set up the System.
        Cheers, Annika
