SMA AMERICA HELPS SOLAR POWER SYSTEM MANAGERS KEEP UP-TO-DATE WITH MOBILE PERFORMANCE DATA


SMA Sunny Portal Web Site now Optimized for Cellular Phones

ROCKLIN, Calif., Aug. 25, 2009"Solar power system owners and operators can now assess critical performance data on the go, through the release of the SMA Sunny Portal Web site optimized for cell phones, announced SMA America, Inc. Administrators can log in to the new site by visiting http://www.sunnyportal.mobi through any Web-enabled phone.

The Sunny Portal is a free Web-based gateway that provides data storage and a visual display of a photovoltaic (PV) system's performance information. Access to the data is available at any time, anywhere, through the Internet.

"SMA recognizes that performance monitoring is a crucial component in any solar power system," said Jurgen Krehnke, president and general manager of SMA America. "The new Sunny Portal mobile Web site now allows solar system managers and owners to conveniently access important system information while on the go."

Timely and accurate system monitoring is essential to ensuring peak production, discovering unnoticed performance disturbances and ultimately maximizing system payback.

The Sunny Portal allows administrators to monitor their systems' output, regardless of configuration or size. Users can monitor the performance of a single system, an entire block of homes or a large PV plant.

Daily system performance data such as energy yield and C02 offset is uploaded to the Sunny Portal via the SMA Sunny WebBox at intervals chosen by the user. Selected weather and temperature data can also be viewed on systems configured with the optional SMA Sunny Sensorbox.
