SMA Announces Rebate Program for Power+ Solution

Residential Installers to Receive a Bonus for Installations from August through Year's End

Today SMA announced a new rebate program for its innovative Power+ Solution. With the Power+ Payday, residential installers can receive a $50 pre-paid debit reward card for each Power+ Solution that is installed and registered in Sunny Portal between August 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017. Quantities will not be limited.


"The Power+ Solution is already helping installers save time and money, and now SMA has taken it to the next level by giving installers additional cash in their pockets," said Charles Ellis, vice president of distributed sales for SMA America. "We know that solar installers appreciate fast, cost-effective and high-performing solar solutions. Power+ reduces cost and risk, delivers speed and performance, and now with the Power+ Payday program, it offers even more savings."

Obtaining the rebate is simple. First, installers must purchase from an Authorized Distributor. Then, they just need to submit purchase information along with proof of purchase online. SMA will mail pre-paid debit reward cards directly to recipients.

SMA's Power+ Solution is redefining what it means to optimize a residential PV system using MLPE. Combining the proven Sunny Boy-US inverter with the TS4-R Module Level Power Electronics (MLPE), the Power+ Solution cost-effectively optimizes residential PV systems and ensures higher energy yields. The solution can be applied per module for operational simplicity, or selectively for faster installation. With the Power+ Solution, integrators can choose to apply the technology in a way that optimizes ROI for their individual business model.

Installers can submit a Power+ Payday rebate claim here.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
