    I have two Sunny Boy inverters on a system from Sungevity. They were providing monitoring services until their bankruptcy. Is there a way that I can get SMA Smart Connected monitoring for them?

    Hello. I have 2 x Sunny Boy 5.0-US, but the registration was done by the solar company – I didn’t have the chance to register for SMA smart connected. How do I add that to my account? Please advise. Thanks.

      Registration with Smart Connected is only possible within 90 days of registration of the system on Sunny Portal. If you are still within that window, open the Configuration tab on the left, select Device Overview and then click on the icon in the Properties column of the first inverter. At the bottom of the new window will be a section for SMA Smart Connected. Click “Edit”, select the checkbox to activate Smart Connected, and enter the required contact information, then click “Save”. You need to follow this process for both inverters.
