Energy management with the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 automatically reduces your energy bill
Once you know where energy comes and goes in your home, you can let the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 do what it is designed to do - manage energy.
Connected to all key household appliances, the optional battery-storage system, an electric vehicle and the PV system, the Sunny Home Manager always knows how much energy is available and where it is needed. Aided by a weather forecast from Internet data and individual adaptation to local conditions, it is able to accurately predict solar irradiation for a few hours into the future and supply the connected household appliances with low cost PV energy. Thanks to the self-learning function of the Sunny Home Manager 2.0, appliances, such as the heat pump, run exactly when there is sufficient sunlight available, making it possible to cover electric power demand by solar production.
With the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 you can have your very own solar charging station right on your doorstep
E-mobility is truly sustainable only when the charging current comes from renewable energy sources – ideally from the PV system on your own roof. The Sunny Home Manager 2.0 uses regional meteorological data to create a generation forecast, which it compares against your own consumption behavior. It then automatically controls the charging processes so that your solar power is fed into the battery of your vehicle, not the utility grid. This allows you to optimize your self-consumption and save on the cost of grid-supplied power.

The online Sunny Portal shows the status of the PV system and displays energy availability and consumption forecasts. It indicates the scheduled operating periods of the household appliances or the electric vehicle that the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 factors into its energy planning. So you know that the washing machine will be finished at 4:00 p.m. and that the laundry will have been washed almost entirely using solar power. It also gives tips on how you could use additional excess solar energy.
The diagrams in the Sunny Portal display the connected household appliances together with their power consumption and operating data so that you can see exactly when the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 started the dishwasher, for example, how much solar power the heat pump has run on over the past month, or how much power has been used to charge the electric vehicle.
The load balance provides an overview of the operating time, duration and consumption level of the devices automatically controlled by the energy management system as well as the energy mix they use.
