SolarEdge Rolls Out StorEdge Solution With Tesla’s Powerwall battery
SolarEdge Technologies, Inc., has announced the immediate international availability of its StorEdge solution. At the end of 2015, the company already completed a number of test installations in select locations around the world.
DC optimized system
Compatible with Tesla’s home battery, the Powerwall, StorEdge is a DC coupled storage solution that allows home owners to reduce electric bills and gain energy independence. With StorEdge, unused solar energy is stored in a battery and used when needed to maximize self-consumption and for power backup.
StorEdge also supports time-of-use management, which promotes energy consumption when electric demand from the grid is low (off-peak rates) and lower consumption when demand is high (peak rates). The backup function allows homeowners to store solar energy and use it during electric outages.
Easy monitoring and maintenance
The solution is based on a single inverter that manages and monitors solar energy generation, consumption, and storage. With the complete StorEdge system, homeowners benefit from higher generation, higher efficiency, simple design, enhanced safety, full monitoring, and easy maintenance. (HS)
