    I have been told by your support team, that my newly installed Sunny Boy Storage 2.5 Battery storage Inverter requires a firmware upgrade! The battery is a Tesla Powerwall 6.4kw. The installers were ForestEco Systems, UK.
    The Sunny Boy keeps showing a red light and it seems to be not sending or storing data.
    How do I download this firmware update and install it, as the company are to busy to do it.
    kind regards,
