Introduction

SolarEdge’s 3-phase StorEdge™ storage solution allows self-consumption to be maximized and enables energy independence. Unused PV power is stored in a battery and used when needed to maximize self consumption. The solution is based on a single inverter for both PV and storage.

Features

  • Ideal solution for three phase installations with battery storage.
  • A hybrid inverter that connects to solar PV and 48V batteries. Suitable for indoor or outdoor installations, inverter models range from 5kW to 10kW.
  • Simple installation with single inverter for managing both PV production and battery storage
  • Can be installed with or without solar as DC or AC coupled battery storage
  • Module-level power optimization for more power harvesting
  • No special wires required - uses the same PV cables  with no high voltages & currents during installation and maintenance
  • PV array and battery voltage designed to reduce to safe voltage upon AC shut down
  • Monitor the battery status, PV production, and self-consumption data
  • Smarter energy consumption to reduce electricity bill
  • Remote access to inverter/battery software

 The system consists of

  • A SolarEdge 3-Phase StorEdge inverter and Power Optimisers - to connect the solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and control battery charging.
  • A 48V battery - to store the energy when it’s generated, for use when it’s needed 
  • SolarEdge Energy Meter for monitoring import/export to the grid.
  • Cabling and switchgear - for efficient and safe operation
Additional cost to end user from ~ £7,000 + Vat (compared to normal PV system)
