SMA Solar Inverter with Secure Power Supply (SPS) provides uninterrupted power supply during grid outages

SMA’s Grid-Tied Solar Inverter with SPS: Uninterrupted Power Supply During Grid Outages


As the use of renewable energy continues to grow, more and more homeowners are turning to solar panels to power their homes. However, one of the challenges with solar energy is the need for more power supply during blackouts or power outages. This is where SMA’s Secure Power Supply (SPS) comes in.


What is SMA’s Secure Power Supply?


SMA’s Secure Power Supply (SPS) is an innovative feature that allows homeowners to utilize their solar panels to power their homes during power outages, acting as a backup power supply. The SPS feature automatically detects when the grid is down and then converts the DC power from the solar panels into AC power to supply electricity to dedicated outlets.

With SPS, homes can continue using their appliances even when the grid is down, providing up to 2,000 watts to a dedicated outlet without additional batteries, making it a cost-effective backup power solution. This amount of power is sufficient to keep essential appliances like refrigerators running and allows for charging cell phones and other electronic devices. However, it is important to note that the SPS feature can only provide power during daylight hours when the sun is shining, and the solar panels generate power.


Here are some other benefits of SMA’s Secure Power Supply for homeowners:


  • Cost-effective: SMA’s Secure Power Supply can help homeowners save money on energy bills. Since the system relies on solar panels, it requires no additional energy sources. This means homeowners can reduce their reliance on the grid and lower their energy bills.
  • Easy to use: SMA’s Secure Power Supply is easy to use and requires no additional setup. Homeowners can plug their devices into the power outlet and are ready to go.
  • Eco-friendly: Using SMA’s Secure Power Supply can help homeowners reduce their carbon footprint. Since it relies on solar panels, it produces clean and renewable energy, reducing the need for non-renewable energy sources.
  • Increased home value: Installing SMA’s Secure Power Supply can increase the value of your home. Homebuyers are increasingly looking for homes with renewable energy sources and backup power supplies, making them a valuable addition to any home.




SMA’s Secure Power Supply is an innovative feature that provides homeowners a reliable power source during blackouts. It is affordable, easy to use, environmentally friendly, and can enhance the value of your home. SPS is an excellent starting point for homeowners worried about backup power. For those living in areas prone to hurricanes or summer brown-outs, investing in SPS is the first step to exploring the potential of battery backup while identifying their load demands based on necessity.
