StorEdge™ Solution with Backup

SolarEdge’s StorEdge DC coupled storage solution automatically provides homeowners with backup power in case of grid interruption, and allows home owners to maximize self-consumption for maximum energy independence. Unused PV power is stored in a battery and used during a power outage or when PV production is insufficient. When there is a power outage, a combination of PV and battery is used to power important loads such as the refrigerator, TV, lights and AC outlets, day or night. The solution is based on a single inverter for PV, storage and backup power. 

StorEdge™ Power Backup Benefits

 

More Energy

  • DC coupled solution allows high system efficiency

  • PV power is stored directly in the battery

  • No additional conversions from AC to DC and back to AC

  • Module-level power optimization for more power harvesting

 

Simple Design & Installation

  • A single inverter for both PV, storage and backup power

  • Outdoor installation allows flexibility in battery location

  • No special wires are required -> utilizes the same PV cables

 

Full Visibility and Easy Maintenance

  • Monitor the battery status, PV production, and self-consumption data

  • Smarter energy consumption to reduce electricity bill

  • Monitor battery energy levels and remaining hours of backup power

  • Remote access to inverter/battery software

 

Enhanced Safety

  • PV array and battery voltage designed to reduce to a safe voltage upon AC shut down, when not in backup mode

  • Integrated Rapid Shutdown functionality; low current during operation
