Generate your own solar power and use it effectively

SMA Energy System Home

With the PV system on the roof of their home, the Reinhardt family from northern Hesse, Germany, is committed to be part of the energy transition. The sustainable power generation is well established so that they want to continue to store excess energy using a storage system.

Making coffee, doing the laundry, washing the dishes – all this is possible sustainably and cost-effective with solar power from your own roof. The Reinhardt family from Ihringshausen near Kassel, Germany, has been banking on an SMA Energy System Home since 2013.

The intelligent Sunny Home Manager distributes the solar power to home appliances, allowing a large portion of the generated solar energy to be consumed directly. And because the PV system produces 10,000 kWh of electricity per year, twice as much as the Reinhardts need for their own use, they want to expand and add a battery-storage and e-mobility. Then the family can capitalize on even more valuable PV power – especially when the sun is not shining.

    I am staying in Spain and recently installed a battery LG resu 10H along with Sunny Storage 3.7.
    In Spain we have 3 prices for the electricity,
    00:00 – 08:00 cheapest
    08:00 – 10:00 normal
    10:00 – 14:00 most expensive
    14:00 – 18:00 normal
    18:00 – 22:00 most expensive
    22:00 – 24:00 normal
    and above
    from 00:00 Saturday to 24:00 Sunday cheapest.
    The system works perfectly and is also built for countries with one electricity price (see also the SMA energy APP) where the battery (if power is available) always has priority over the grid.
    Here in Spain, in the absence of sun, the battery gives power to the consumer at the weekend (cheap period), and then goes empty on Monday where the power is significantly more expensive …
    If we had the option to turn off/on the priority battery outgoing power , we could make even more use of the battery in expensive periods.
    In case there is enough sun, the current system works perfectly and I don’t need that intervention.
