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. It allows you to best 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.

Real-Time Monitoring

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.

Solar Batteries Adelaide

With the rising costs of energy charges, many Adelaide people are turning to Solar Batteries for storage of power and supply of power as needed. This allows them to reduce power bills and gain independence from the energy providers.

Adelaide Solarsafe’s StorEdgeTM energy storage system (Solar Batteries) is perfect for this purpose. When combined with SolarEdge and cloud-based monitoring you will have the latest in elite home energy management and storage systems.

SolarEdge

SolarEdge is an optimisation system that allows each panel to operate independently from each other. Most solar installations string each panel together. If one panel is shaded by a tree, all the panels in your solar installation are impacted and your Solar PV (photovoltaics – electricity produced from solar energy) is reduced. With SolarEdge, only the panel that is shaded is affected. Every other panel continues to produce the maximum solar PV that it can.

This means more energy saved!

StorEdge

StorEdge is a storage system for your solar PV that works with a battery and the energy provider. The solar power system stores PV power over what you are using, as you receive it and exports it to the grid when the battery is charged. This gives you direct PV power first, stored power second and the grid power last. It works on a cycle and is easier to explain by giving you an example of that cycle.

Just prior to sunrise, you are using grid power. As the sun rises, your panels become active and start to take over the power production of the household. As the PV coming in exceeds the usage, the battery starts to charge. Once the battery is charged, the excess is exported to the grid. If at any time during the day, the usage exceeds the PV coming in, the battery takes over the supply of power to the household. When the usage drops back down or the PV coming in rises again, the supply reverts and the battery returns to charging. When the battery is full, any extra PV over what you are using is sent to the grid. Once the sun goes down and PV direct usage stops, the battery takes over supplying power to the household. When the battery is drained, power supply is then handled by the grid (the energy provider).

Back-Up Power Also!

It is also possible for StorEdge to be a back-up power supplier for the house if there is an interruption to the grid supply on pre-selected loads. This uses a combination of PV and battery, depending on time of day and PV coming in. During night-time, the battery takes over powering the important loads.

SolarEdge Monitoring

The monitoring platform allows you to see real-time data in relation to the households PV production, consumption, storage and the flow between the PV array, battery, grid and house loads.

Benefits of the StorEdge System

  • The major benefit you can see is the increase in energy harvesting due to the optimisers. This means power is stored in the battery quicker and more is exported to the grid.
  • A single PV and Battery Inverter is used providing a higher efficiency and this results in a simple design and easier installation.
  • Full visibility and easy maintenance due to the monitoring software. This can result in smarter energy consumption and will reduce electricity bills.
