Please understand that SMA API plans are B2B prices for our application partners, which may embed our fees in their solution bundles and therefore differ due to additional cost of our partners (e.g. for collection & settlement). As SMA system owner, you may only directly contract with SMA if you are in control of the connected 3rd party application.
