With 50,000 registered solar arrays in more than 100 countries, including the United States and Canada, SMA's Sunny Portal is the world's largest Web platform for monitoring, managing and presenting photovoltaic systems. That equates to 3.5 gigawatts of power monitored via the Sunny Portal Web site and iPhone application, both free services.

"SMA's Sunny Portal is favored among photovoltaic system operators, installers and service technicians because centralized administration and system monitoring saves both time and money," said Jurgen Krehnke, president and general manager of SMA America. "With the Sunny Portal, they are able to access data at any time, from any location, thereby ensuring peak production by discovering unnoticed performance disturbances, resulting in maximum system payback."
