Four Reasons to Register Your System in Sunny Portal

From on 05/03/2016 in Category Company with 8 Comments

Sunny Portal offers PV system operators and installers the ability to monitor their systems online and is an essential component in intelligent energy management. Over 200,000 PV systems and over 400,000 users are already registered in Sunny Portal. Read about the advantages of Sunny Portal here.

1. The international number one

In the global comparative study “Global PV Monitoring: Technologies, Markets and Leading Players, 2014-2018” published in 2014 by GTM Research, Sunny Portal took first place out of 70 providers as the portal with which the most PV power is monitored throughout the world. Nearly 220,000 systems with more than 13.3 GW of monitored PV power from over 160 countries are now registered in Sunny Portal. As an installer or PV system operator, you can therefore rely on more than 10 years of experience, security and innovation in the field of online monitoring of PV systems.

2. Fitting solution for monitoring small residential to large commercial systems

Whether for residential or commercial PV systems, centralized management and monitoring of several PV systems saves time and money. In Sunny Portal, PV system operators and installers have access to key data at any time. As a user, you can choose between various views and define these yourself in accordance with your system type or target group. Sunny Portal features almost infinite options for analyzing measured values and visualizing yields, whether you need a data table or a diagram. Yields for every inverter in a system are compared automatically, and even the smallest deviations are detected. These powerful reporting functions also provide regular updates via e-mail to help ensure yields.

3. Close connection to SMA Service

If you have problems with your PV system, SMA Service can use Sunny Portal to access the inverters’ relevant measurements and events and thus provide expert troubleshooting support. As a result, you receive fast assistance and avoid complicated on-site diagnoses, saving time and money.

4. Sunny Portal has given rise to a simpler community platform for private PV system operators too: Sunny Places

Sunny Places is the community portal for private PV system operators and everyone interested in solar power. You can use it to view your PV system’s key data easily and clearly on one page, find other PV systems or compare your system with others, and communicate with other PV system operators and experts. On one page you can see how your system is currently performing; how much energy you have produced in total; what the weather will be like at the system’s location; and how much CO2 you have already prevented with your system. Data from Sunny Portal can be transferred to Sunny Places with just a few clicks. Learn more about how this works by registering here.

    I have 3 2000HFUS-30 inverters I’m trying to get connected to my computer, and have already got the Portal APP.
    It’s asking for the PIC & RID information and I can’t find it anywhere.
    Now What?

      Hi Skip, HFUS inverters are not compatible with Sunny Portal. The only communications option is Sunny Explorer via Bluetooth.

      Steve – you do not need to be home, but the inverter does need to have internet access for the registration process to complete. Based on the message you are seeing, either the inverter does not have internet connection (plugged into router, or connected wirelessly to router), or a required port for Webconnect has not been opened. UDP Ports 9523 (sip-proxy-port, sip-registrar-port) and 3478 (stun-port) need to be open on all routers/switches in the connection, they must be open both incoming and outgoing to allow for the IGMP (multi-cast protocol) [sip-proxy-host: / sip-registrar-host: / stun-host: / sip-domain: ]. Once the connection is established, the registration to Sunny Portal can be done anywhere, as long as you have the PIC and RID codes available for the inverter.

      Khiem – exactly what do you want to do? Resetting all operating parameters to the factory defaults cannot be done via the Sunny Portal if the inverter is connected via Webconnect.

      Hi Alex! Are you referring to Sunny Portal (blog post topic) or Sunny Places (per your comment)?
