SMA will host three days of training at the Florida Solar Energy Center in Cocoa, Florida from February 18-20. If you are in the Southeast and are interested in learning about residential, commercial and off-grid solar and storage, then you don’t want to miss these seminars with the best resources in the industry!
SMA String Inverters for Residential and Commercial Applications
The SMA Sunny Boy US-41 and SMA Sunny Tripower CORE1 string inverters are now equipped with an integrated SunSpec Rapid Shutdown transmitter, providing the fastest installation as well as the most reliable and cost-effective solutions for PV systems of all sizes.
On first day of this hands-on training, the SMA Solar Academy pros will teach you all about the safety and operational elements of these string inverters, including the SunSpec Rapid Shutdown feature. They will also discuss other details including:
- design with SMA string inverters
- installation and commissioning best practices
- monitoring and O&M
SMA Residential Storage Solutions
On the second day of this valuable in-person training you will learn how to plan and design future-proof solar systems with SMA residential storage solutions. Both the Sunny Boy Storage and the Sunny Island battery inverters allow maximum independence and significant reduction of electricity costs. Our trainers will also cover key aspects such as:
- application scenarios for different systems
- battery expertise and criteria for battery selection
- tips on designing and integrating PV and Storage solutions into the SMA Home, i.e. plant monitoring, visualization of energy flows and optimization of self-consumption
Each day of this class is eligible for five (5) NABCEP Continuing Education Units.
SMA Off-grid Solutions including Hybrid Controller
On the third day of this in-depth training, participants will learn from SMA Sunbelt experts about off-grid systems and the Hybrid Controller. They will also cover the design process and the capabilities of the system.
The Sunbelt team designed the Brando 2.6 MWh battery-storage system which provides 60% of the electricity needed at Marlon Brando’s private island in the South Pacific as well as the St Eustatius multi-MW/MWH system that allows the whole Caribbean island to run on PV and battery power during the day. Join us for this training to learn how these not-so-micro grids are created.
