Grid independence with solar power

Grid independence with solar power

100% independence - with or without a grid connection

Grid independence with solar power

An island in the Caribbean, a monastery in Greece or a research center in the Antarctic - SMA off-grid systems can be used anywhere.

A reliable electricity supply with grid quality and scalable systems even in the most remote regions of the world are exactly what SMA Multicluster systems provide.

Benefits

100% independence from the utility grid and electricity costs

System in detail

With the Business off-grid system, you can declare your independence from unstable utility grids

  • PV system

    The PV system modules on your roof convert sunlight into solar power.

  • Sunny Tripower CORE1

    The SMA Sunny Tripower CORE1 inverter is the ideal partner for your SMA Business off-grid system. It converts the direct current generated by the PV system into alternating current.

  • SMA Smart Connected

    For off-grid systems with internet connections, SMA Smart Connected will automatically monitor your inverter. Even before you notice a problem, the system has already notified the installer and a solution is on its way.

  • Diesel generator

    The diesel generator ensures that your off-grid system is kept supplied with power even when there is little sunshine.

  • SMA ShadeFix

    SMA ShadeFix is a patented, integrated software application that optimizes energy yield in PV systems. SMA ShadeFix outperforms most conventional hardware for (partially) shaded PV systems.

  • Battery inverter

    The SMA Sunny Island battery inverter is both the brain and the heart of any off-grid system. The sturdy unit with extremely high overload capacity manages all loads and generators. The three-phase system can be set up without an additional box up to 24 kW.

  • Battery

    The battery stores the solar power with maximum efficiency and makes it available again as required. Various lead-acid and lithium batteries with 48 V technology are compatible with the Sunny Island. One battery is shared between three Sunny Islands in a cluster.

  • SMA Monitoring (optional)

    Whether via the web portal or on a mobile device with the app, SMA Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS keeps you constantly updated on the current performance of your SMA Energy System Business, how much energy you have already produced, your level of self-consumption and how much additional power you are procuring.

  • SMA Data Manager M

    The SMA Data Manager M monitors the entire system and sends the data to Sunny Portal. You can now monitor multiple metering points and choose any configuration of switch outputs.

  • PV system

    The PV system modules on your roof convert sunlight into solar power.

  • Sunny Tripower CORE1

    The SMA Sunny Tripower CORE1 inverter is the ideal partner for your SMA Business off-grid system. It converts the direct current generated by the PV system into alternating current.

  • SMA ShadeFix

    SMA ShadeFix is a patented, integrated software application that optimizes energy yield in PV systems. SMA ShadeFix outperforms most conventional hardware for (partially) shaded PV systems.

  • SMA Multicluster Box

    The Multicluster Box makes it easy to set up off-grid systems with peak power of up to 300 kW.

  • Battery inverter

    The SMA Sunny Island battery inverter is both the brain and the heart of any off-grid system. The sturdy unit with extremely high overload capacity manages all loads and generators. Above 24 kW, the three-phase system requires an additional Multicluster Box.

  • Battery

    The battery stores the solar power with maximum efficiency and makes it available again as required. Various lead-acid and lithium batteries with 48 V technology are compatible with the Sunny Island. One battery is shared between three Sunny Islands in a cluster.

Multicluster Boxes for Sunny Island

How it works

  • The SMA Multicluster Box combines a battery inverter, PV system, diesel generator and load.

  • At critical states of charge, the Multicluster Box automatically starts up a connected diesel generator and synchronizes it with the stand-alone grid.

  • The largest Multicluster Box connects up to 12 clusters (each containing three Sunny Island units) to a three-phase off-grid system with 300 kW of peak power.

  • One cluster consists of three Sunny Island battery inverters and a shared battery that soaks up any surplus electricity.
