StorEdge™ Solution with Backup

Coming Soon- SolarEdge High Power StorEdge Inverter with additional battery support

The High Power StorEdge inverter will support Tesla's Powerwall 2 and LG's RESU10H* batteries, as well as two Tesla Powerwall 1 (type E) or Powerwall 2 batteries for high power. The new batteries will only be compatible with SolarEdge’s High Power StorEdge inverter (part number SE7600A-USS2xxxxxx) and not with earlier versions of the StorEdge inverter. 

A free inverter firmware upgrade is required to support the high power batteries and configurations. Information about the firmware version can be found in the product release notes and will be available, along with the firmware upgrade file, in the StorEdge Firmware Upgrade page
 
More details will be available in February 2017.
 
*The current high voltage RESU batteries sold by LG Chem are not compatible with SolarEdge; LG Chem will sell a different variation that will be compatible with SolarEdge.
 

The SolarEdge StorEdge Solution

SolarEdge’s StorEdge DC coupled storage solution automatically provides homeowners with backup power in case of grid interruption, and allows home owners to maximize self-consumption for maximum energy independence. Unused PV power is stored in a battery and used during a power outage or when PV production is insufficient. When there is a power outage, a combination of PV and battery is used to power important loads such as the refrigerator, TV, lights and AC outlets, day or night. The solution is based on a single inverter for PV, storage and backup power. 

 

StorEdge™ Power Backup Benefits

 

More Energy

  • DC coupled solution allows high system efficiency

  • PV power is stored directly in the battery

  • No additional conversions from AC to DC and back to AC

  • Module-level power optimization for more power harvesting

 

Simple Design & Installation

  • A single inverter for both PV, storage and backup power

  • Outdoor installation allows flexibility in battery location

  • No special wires are required -> utilizes the same PV cables

 

Full Visibility and Easy Maintenance

  • Monitor the battery status, PV production, and self-consumption data

  • Smarter energy consumption to reduce electricity bill

  • Monitor battery energy levels and remaining hours of backup power

  • Remote access to inverter/battery software

 

Enhanced Safety

  • PV array and battery voltage designed to reduce to a safe voltage upon AC shut down, when not in backup mode

  • Integrated Rapid Shutdown functionality; low current during operation
