Everything at a Glance

Sunny Portal visualizes all yield data conveniently and concisely:

  • Live system status data
  • Information about current energy flow (purchased electricity, battery charging)
  • Monitors communication to the portal
  • Monitors inverter performance
  • Weather information for location

Visualized Energy Yields

Sunny Portal offers specialist views of the energy yields, taking into consideration the requirements of different system types. The Sunny Portal features optimal possibilities for analyzing measured values and visualizing yields, whether you need a data table or a diagram.

Always Up to Date

The reporting functions provide reliable updates via e-mail and therefore help ensure yields. Users automatically receive information about their system yields and performance at regular intervals (daily or monthly). If needed, Sunny Portal users can also receive events such as inverter status information.

The Right Solution for Every Need

Whether for residential systems or commercial PV systems, centralized management and monitoring of PV systems saves time and money. With Sunny Portal and the Sunny Portal Professional Package, PV system operators and installers can always view key data. Private PV system operators can also use the SMA Community Portal Sunny Places to exchange and compare PV system data with other users.
