Solar Energy Storage
e home Solar Energy Storage and management system.
If you are looking to save money on your electricity bills then you should be looking at a solar system that includes Solar Energy Storage. A Solar Energy Storage system will allow you to reduce your power bills, store power and supply to you as needed and help you gain independence from the energy providers.
An energy storage system that utilises solar batteries like Adelaide Solarsafe’s StorEdgeTM is what you need to achieve this. Combine it with our SolarEdge product with cloud-based monitoring and you will have an elit
Solar Energy STORAGE – The Basics
Solar panels collect the solar energy that hits them and converts that energy into electricity. This technology is solar photovoltaics, or more commonly abbreviated to PV. This is transformed into electricity ready to be used in your home, with any any excess electricity sent into the power grid.
When batteries are installed, excess power is first stored in a solar battery, ready for you to use it later. If the battery becomes fully charged then the excess power is sen tto the power grid. Once the sun goes down, the battery provides power it has stored during the day.
Shade on SOLaR Panels
Solar installations can be affected by shade, whether from trees or other obstructions creating a shadow on the solar panels. If one panel is shaded, then the entire solar system is affected and the solar energy collected is reduced across all those panels.
The SolarEdge Advantage
SolarEdge optimises each panel to operate independently from each other. This means that if one panel is shaded it is the only panel that is affected, not every panel! Every other panel will continue to produce to its maximum collection of Solar PV that it can collect.
StorEdge – The Solar Energy Storage Solution
The Solar Energy Storage Solution, StorEdge works as your solar direct PV, stored PV energy and grid power usage management system. StorEdge allows you to utilise the Solar PV power as it is generated, uses the battery if you exceed the direct PV and the grid once both are exhausted. Let me give you an example…
From sunrise, your panels become active and you start to use the PV provided by them. While you are not using all of that PV the battery starts to charge from the excess collected. If your usage exceeds the PV coming in then the battery comes into play for any extra power required e.g. 90% direct and 10% battery. When your usage drops back to 100% direct, the battery returns to charging. When the battery is full, the extra PV is sent to the grid. At sunset, the panels stop collecting PV and your usage switches to the battery. Any excess over the battery is taken from the grid. Once the battery is drained, the grid takes over your power supply until the sun rises once again.
A perfect management system that uses all the direct PV first, the battery second and the grid last. It’s possible that you could not even draw on the grid at all!
All this and Back-up Power Too!
In the case of a blackout, because of the way this system works, you wouldn’t even notice, unless of course, your battery goes flat. Or you have it set to concentrate on pre-selected loads so, for example, you might lose your lights but the fridge continues to receive power.
The SolarEdge monitoring platform tracks the PV production, consumption, storage and the flow of the PV between the array, battery, grid and house loads in real-time data.
