SMA Sunny IslandSMA Sunny Island

The Sunny Island is a comprehensive off-grid inverter/charger that benefits from 25 years of SMA experience. The Sunny Island inverter/chargers are German designed and manufactured and are perfect for use in AC coupled off-grid solar power Sunshine Coast systems.

The Sunny Island is extremely flexible and can be used to charge a wide variety of lead acid as well as lithium batteries such as the BYD.

In addition it can be programmed to auto-start a suitable generator if you need additional power or if your battery state of charge is too low. Another useful feature is the ability to load shed excess solar energy into non-essential items such as a garden irrigation system.

Wi-Fi monitoring is now standard on the Sunny Island 4.4, 6 and 8 models and providing the unit is connected to your home internet you can monitor the system from anywhere in the world via Sunny Portal.

This summary page from a system in Belli Park shows that 2.56kW of power is being provided by the Sunshine Coast solar panels, the house is using 1.89kW and the remaining 680watts is being used to charge the battery to 100%. The generator is not required at this stage.

5 Star Review - The Sun WorksHaving spent several months researching possible solar options for our new Sunshine Coast home we quickly learned exactly what it was we wanted to install, but the next piece in the puzzle, finding the right company with the best price and service options to back it up was far more challenging. With lots of companies happy to take your money but not necessarily happy to work with you to refine your selections and therefore your needs, we were thrilled to discover the sincerity and professionalism offered to us by Sunworks Solar. Our sales professional, Wayne, and his side kick Mike were always available to answer questions and nothing was ever too much trouble. Peter and his installation team were stunning. Despite a showery day and several interruptions, our job was completed and the final outcome was stunning – everything was so neat, so well thought through, so perfectly planned, so concisely explained. So, if you’re looking for the ultimate solar solution, we believe you won’t do better than Sunworks Solar in Maroochydore, a genuinely reliable company in a sea of uncertainty and hype.
