The New Sunny Boy Storage Can Integrate up to Three Batteries

Good news for anyone who wants to install a PV system with a storage system, or wants to modernize their system. For the first time, the new Sunny Boy Storage 3.7/5.0/6.0 battery inverter from SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA) allows up to three high-voltage batteries to be connected. If the demand for electricity increases — when charging an electric vehicle or connecting a heat pump, for example — the storage system can be expanded by an additional high-voltage battery at any time thanks to the Sunny Boy Storage 3.7/5.0/6.0. With the multistring battery inverter, PV system operators can increase self-consumption of their solar power, making them less dependent on the electric utility companies.
