SMA is pleased to present a new demonstration on the highly anticipated Sunny Boy TL-US inverter and its industry-first emergency power supply feature. This dynamic new feature will provide a homeowner with a dedicated power outlet in the event of a grid failure. In today’s competitive market, this one-of-a-kind feature will differentiate your offer from the competition and position your solution as a cut above the rest.
