The SMA Energy System Home includes a Sunny Boy 6.0-US battery inverter and a10kWh battery from BYD. The system is available in two variants. The first includes the fully integrated Automatic Backup Unit, which simplifies installation for backup use cases.

This allows users to optimize rates and power consumption, as well as participate in unique markets with zero export grid requirements. Furthermore, even systems designed for energy management come with SMA’s exclusive Backup Lite feature, which allows users to access 2000W of available power via a manual switch. Up to three high-voltage batteries can be connected to a single Sunny Boy Storage-US, simplifying installation, reducing labor, and cutting balance-of-system costs. The AC coupled architecture allows for new PV or retrofit installations. The system pairs with the Sunny Portal PV monitoring platform to monitor and control home energy usage. SMA Smart Connected is a proactive service solution provided with the SMA Energy System Home. Smart Connected ensures uptime is maximized for the homeowner while service truck rolls for installers can be cut in half.
