SMA – Lead Carbon

SMA - Lead Carbon

Long-term off grid solution

Our 48V LITE, CLASSIC and PLUS Off-Grid systems are designed with the cost-effective and high performance Lead Carbon batteries. These systems are designed using Lead Carbon batteries from the well-known battery manufacturer Narada and the world leading SMA inverters.  Performance and lifespan are similar to lithium batteries.

With a combined capacity from the SMA inverters, you can during daytime live a normal life like you are connected to the grid. You don’t have to stress about what you can or can’t use simultaneously. However, saying that we recommend that you use common sense and don’t start up all appliances simultaneously and do the normal household routines during the daytime when power is still generated from the solar panels.

NARADA Lead Carbon

Lead Carbon batteries are cost-effective and high-performance batteries. They are an attractive battery option for long-term Off-Grid solutions, providing a new level of performance for energy storage.

Lead-carbon battery provides not only high energy density but also high power, rapid charge and discharge, longer cycle life with 15-20 year average lifespan (7000 cycles at 30% DOD).

Lead Carbon has a superior resistance against partial states of charge – a chemical reaction called “sulfation” that occurs during charging cycles and is the principal reason for ordinary lead-acid batteries fail.


SMA is a leading global specialist for photovoltaic system technology. With a Headquarter in Germany, they have more than 3,000 SMA employees in 20 countries. SMA has been developing and distributing high-quality PV inverters for over 30 years and for the fifth year in a row, SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA) has been voted the most preferred inverter brand in the world.

Our AC coupled Off-Grid systems are using the Sunny Boy panel inverter/regulator together with the Sunny Island Off-Grid/Battery inverter. With their combined capacity, you can during daytime live a normal life like you are connected to the grid.

Jinko Solar

A Tier 1 solar panel with high quality that is designed to produce power for as long as the expected lifespan which is 25 years.

Jinko Solar is the world’s leading solar PV module supplier. In Sep 2018 Jinko was named as the most “bankable” PV manufacturer in the world by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) among 57 module brands. https://reneweconomy.com.au/jinkosolar-ranked-as-most-bankable-pv-manufacturer-by-bloomberg-new-energy-finance-42293/

Jinko Solar has a number of world records for its silicon solar cell and module technology, displaying its technological process.

Their panels have a superior low light performance as well as weather resistant reliability, it is renowned for its outstanding performance ratio and yield in kWh/kW (according to Photon Lab’s Outdoor Module Test). They are suitable for all applications from the residential rooftop, commercial, public building, agricultural and industrial flat roofs to large-scale ground-mounted solar plants.
