More about Sunny Boy Inverter Solutions
SMA America, the United States division of global solar technology giant SMA Technologie AG, is proud to report that the installed base of its wildly popular line of Sunny Boy inverters—the key component in a solar power system that turns direct-current power generated by solar panels into usable household current—has topped 750,000 units worldwide. Together, these Sunny Boy inverters are able to provide an astonishing aggregate of three billion watts (i.e., three gigawatts) of safe, usable, grid-quality power. That's enough to power nearly three-quarters of a million homes!
The reasons for the worldwide success of the Sunny Boy Inverter line are straightforward: reliability and efficiency. Ideally suited for residential and light commercial use, the newest Sunny Boy inverters are certified to the new UL 1741/IEEE 1547 standard, and lead the CEC list with the highest efficiencies, ranging from 95 to 96 percent. Their longevity is enhanced via their patented OptiCool temperature-management systems and rugged cast-aluminum, outdoor-rated enclosures. As proof of their reliability, Sunny Boy inverters are backed by a generous 10-year factory warranty.
