Smart Energy 3.6 / 4.0 / 5.0 / 6.0

The 1-phase 2-in-1 hybrid inverter by SMA

The SMA Sunny Boy Smart Energy single-phase hybrid inverter is the two-in-one solution for the generation and flexible use of solar power at home.

Reliable and sustainable energy supply

The Sunny Boy Smart Energy is the ideal gateway to an all-round energy transition in the home. As a PV and battery inverter in one, it ensures a reliable and sustainable supply of energy. Thanks to the integrated secure power supply function and an optional battery backup function*, it will continue to run even if the utility grid fails.

Maximum solar energy

Three MPP trackers allow varying roof orientations to be incorporated into plans for solar power production. The hybrid inverter offers very fast charging for connected batteries and makes the most of days with few hours of sunshine.

Heat pumps, charging solutions for electric vehicles and smart energy management can be flexibly integrated into the energy system at any time. This means greater independence from rising energy costs and conventional energy supplies. With the Sunny Boy Smart Energy, users can expect the high standard of quality that comes with a product made in Germany.
