By enabling companies to buy affordable energy, store it when it is available and retrieve it as needed, the new SMA Commercial Storage Solution helps to fully equip them to meet the challenges of the energy world. The flexible, expandable commercial solution provides installers with perfectly harmonized hardware components and a comprehensive integrated service package covering everything from project planning, installation and commissioning through to ongoing operation. A ten-year warranty on the worry-free, all-inclusive package is another benefit.
Perfectly harmonized components
In addition to an SMA battery inverter for efficiently storing and supplying energy, the new SMA Commercial Storage Solution comprises a battery with up to 8,000 complete charge cycles. The SMA Energy Meter monitors all energy flows in the system for smart energy management. In the Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS, the energy flows are visualized clearly and parameterized centrally, ensuring comprehensive monitoring. The system manager functions that are also integrated enable all components to be intelligently controlled without additional external devices.
Big plus for installers: an all-inclusive package
The integrated services are especially attractive for solar power professionals and installers. They include practical training at the SMA Solar Academy along with a range of professional training courses and certification programs. Whether in-person or online, the seminars give participants the opportunity to share knowledge and network with others. Custom system design including profitability analysis using the Sunny Design planning tool is just one element of the holistic project support. Other elements include fast and professional commissioning by SMA and a ten-year warranty on the overall system.
“With the SMA Commercial Energy Solutions, SMA is restoring planning certainty for commercial users in relation to energy costs,” said Nick Morbach, Executive Vice President Commercial & Industrial at SMA. “Solar power professionals and installers benefit from perfectly harmonized energy and charging solutions. In addition to intelligent SMA solar and battery inverters with integrated software and the SMA EV Charger Business, these include optimized service and warranty packages. As a result, commercial customers meet all the requirements of tailored, future-proof energy systems for a climate-friendly and affordable energy supply.”
The SMA Commercial Storage Solution is available to order now and will be shipped from late May 2023.
