SMA America Will Bring Future-Proof Inverter Solutions To SPI

With a range of new products and solutions across all market segments including residential, commercial, utility, storage and O&M, SMA America will have plenty to display at Solar Power International in Anaheim, California, which will take place September 24-27, 2018.

“From new residential, commercial and utility solutions to continued growth in service and O&M offerings, this has been a banner year for SMA America,” said John Susa, executive vice president of sales for SMA America. “We look forward to connecting with partners and customers at SPI and sharing more about some of our cutting-edge, up-and-coming efforts in solar and storage.”

SMA will have a large presence at SPI this year. First, the company will participate in the Smart Energy Microgrid Marketplace, with a booth (No. 4038) featuring the Sunny Boy Storage-US solution for residential applications, which is now available for shipping. SMA experts will also be on hand at the Smart Energy booth to discuss AC and DC coupled solutions for utility storage. Additionally, SMA will host an outdoor booth on the Grand Plaza (No. 6001) to highlight a number of other solutions for the residential, commercial, utility and O&M markets.

Among SMA’s latest commercial solutions are two new Sunny Tripower CORE1 power classes upgraded with the latest safety technologies and powered by ennexOS, the company’s award-winning platform for cross-sector energy management. The Sunny Tripower CORE1 is further enhanced when combined with the TS4-R-F retrofit module-level device, which operates on the multi-vendor, industry standard Sunspec shutdown signal and provides a reliable, cost-effective solution to achieve compliance with 2017 NEC module-level rapid shutdown requirements in commercial rooftop systems.

SMA has made major advancements in its utility solution offerings this year, with the recent unveiling of the Sunny Highpower PEAK3 for distributed generation and utility-scale projects. The Sunny Highpower PEAK3 is an ideal solution for flexibility, simplicity and performance for large-scale solar projects. Earlier this year, SMA also introduced the Utility Power Rack 5000/5500, a highly integrated, turnkey solution that offers up to 40% integration cost savings over alternative solutions. And finally, the Sunny Central UP family of inverters, which will soon be available for order, offers four new power classes for more efficient design, reduced costs and higher performance in utility projects.
