The SMA Solar Academy is heading to Cocoa, Florida, in October for two special training events. Our technical trainers will be providing a two-day class on SMA’s battery-based inverter solutions as well as a one-day class on designing hybrid systems. The events will be held at the Florida Solar Energy Center, located on the University of Central Florida’s Cocoa satellite campus.
Commissioning a new lithium-ion battery within a Sunny Island system takes only minutes. In this Tech Tip video, the SMA Solar Academy demonstrates the simple commissioning procedure for a Sunny Island system with a battery that uses an external battery management system, or BMS.
Costilla Lodge, a 578,000 acre hunting and fishing resort owned by media mogul and multi-billionaire Ted Turner, recently commissioned at $1 million off-grid solar system.
Tokelau is one of the world’s most remote countries – and the first to generate its energy supply using only photovoltaics. We spoke with Alexander Kaemmerer of SMA Australia, who spent almost a month in Tokelau supporting the project, training Tokelauans to operate the plants and demonstrating to the clients how to proceed with the rest of the commissioning.
