Battery storage is a huge advantage when installed alongside Solar Pv as this can help to store any excess solar energy that would have beforehand been exported to the grid. Solar battery storage is similar to any other kind kind of battery, it simply stores DC power read to be used when needed. This stored Solar energy can be used at any time from the battery such as nigh times or at times when the solar pv isn’t generating enough to match your current consumption.
More and more manufactures are developing the off grid technology which allows properties with Solar Pv and Batteries to work even during power cuts.
As standard at Entire Renewables we installed DC Coupled batteries as this can, in most cases, be the most energy efficient way of storing excess solar power as there are less transfer processes involved. Another benefit over DC battery storage in comparison to AC coupled battery storage is that AC coupled batteries will need prior permission from the DNO in the form of a G99 application.
OFF GRID - Most traditional string inverters such as the Libbi & the Solis are equipped with a EPS/UPS supply which means in the event of a power cut you could potentially run off grid from just your battery and solar pv. Although the system maybe equipped to provide an emergency power supply in some cases this may not be suitable for all properties do to either the installation method and costs or the rated output not being suitable to power all of the circuits. This is normally assessed on a case by case basis.
Solaredge Backup Interface - Due in 2023, the highly anticipated Solaredge back up interface is expected to provide a full 3 phase 63amp pass through supply in the event of a power cut, meaning that you may have the potential to take the whole property iff grid and still power all of your circuits. We're still awaiting the full details to be released from Solaredge for a single phase option.
DC Battery Storage Systems
DC Coupled Batteries
Manufactures often have a battery storage system to suit their string inverter. This gives us a wider option of choice to build a storage system to suite your needs and budget. Some systems work in the background and some have fully functional Apps to controls your battery.
Solaredge Energybank 10kwh
The Solaredge 10kwh Energybank works in with the Solaredge system to provide efficient energy storage whist maintaining the key safety features, long warranty and expert technical support that you would expect from Solaredge all accessed from the My Solaredge App.
