Based on a single inverter SolarEdge’s StorEdge is a DC coupled storage solution that allows home owners to stay powered even when grid power is down. With StorEdge, unused solar energy is stored in a battery and used when needed to maximize self-consumption and reduce electric bills.
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 to power pre-selected devices.
The StorEdge backup solution will be included in SolarEdge’s 2018 pan-European innovation tour for PV installers taking place February-March. In the roadshow, SolarEdge will present a wide range of new solutions, including its extended range of commercial inverters and compact residential solution for small roofs with 4-8 modules.
