Energy management: SMA is now taking orders for its Utility Power Rack 5000/5500, a highly integrated, turnkey solution that offers up to 40 percent integration cost savings over alternative solutions. It is completely pre-assembled for easy set up and commissioning, reducing time-consuming labor processes in the field and minimizing installation risk.

“The highly integrated Utility Power Rack offers a simple, convenient solution without compromises,” said Boris Wolff, executive vice president for SMA’s Utility business unit. “This newest solution sits atop SMA’s North American utility-scale portfolio and enables faster installation and reduced labor costs, as well as the flexibility to integrate storage. By making all critical connections in the factory rather than in the field, we further reduce risk during the installation process.”

Compatible with both Sunny Central and Sunny Central Storage 2500-EV(-US) and 2750-EV(-US) inverters, the Utility Power Rack is the ideal building block for large-scale PV plants. It offers true 1,500 V technology, which means more reliable stack design and long-term, trouble-free operation. The design is based on more than 10 GW of field-proven Sunny Central inverters in North America, and is backed by more than 35 years and 65 GW of proven experience from SMA globally—meaning reduced risk for PV plant investments.

Offering unmatched convenience and flexibility, the Utility Power Rack can be used with multiple storage options from SMA, providing a standardized process for integrators who are working on both PV and storage projects. It also includes a multitude of configurable options to meet the needs of any plant.
