Smartphone users with the Android operating system can now access critical performance data from any photovoltaic (PV) system on the SMA Sunny Portal, described as the world’s largest Web-based PV monitoring solution. Available for free download from the Android Market, the SMA Sunny Portal Android application allows solar power system owners and operators to manage, monitor and display PV system performance instantly, anytime and anywhere. This new addition complements SMA’s Sunny Portal and Solarchecker applications for the Apple iPhone.
"The new Sunny Portal Android application allows even more PV system owners and operators to monitor their systems while on the go," said Jurgen Krehnke, president and general manager of SMA America and president of SMA Canada. "This conserves both time and costs because they are able to instantly access system data to ensure peak production and discover unnoticed performance disturbances."
