Why You Should Get the SolarEdge Home Battery?
Most homes only use a fraction of the solar energy they generate. By storing excess solar energy into a home battery enables you to use the solar energy at night or during a power blackout providing you with more energy independence.
The value of solar feed-in rates is plummeting, and newly designed tariffs pave the way with new incentives. Battery storage will replace old thermal power stations and empower people to support the electricity network.
Make A Positive Impact
Most of the energy used in the evening and at night comes from either coal or gas power plants. Make a positive impact on the environment by using more clean energy when it’s needed the most.
Power When You Need It
Keep your home and family safe during a power blackout. By having a SolarEdge Home Battery and Backup Interface, you can keep your entire home running for days during a black-out.

SolarEdge Home Battery FAQ’s.
Important key terms and phrases.
A mode of operation for the solar inverter that uses a battery or batteries to provide backup energy in the event of grid failure.
A device that is used to store energy using chemical reactions and has a positive and negative charge. Batteries store energy in DC form, and inverters convert the current to AC for general use. When selecting a battery for a PV system, a number of factors should be considered: (a) battery capacity should meet the household’s demand and the soalr system’s production rate so that energy is not lost (b) the battery’s charging and discharging rate should be fast enough to meet energy needs (c) the battery should be warranted for outdoor and indoor installation.
The total amount of electrical energy a battery can deliver. Because many batteries can be damaged if they are completely discharged, a battery’s capacity is usually higher than its usable capacity. Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt hours (kWh), which shows how much total energy the battery can provide.
This refers to the way in which solar inverters are coupled with a battery. AC coupling converts solar energy to AC before converting it back to DC for battery storage, which results in lost energy and the inverter acting as an energy bottle neck. With DC coupling, the inverter directs energy directly from solar panels to batteries without converting it. DC coupling has multiple advantages, such as higher efficiencies and supporting solar oversizing.
Direct Current (DC)
A type of electrical current that is produced by solar panels and used by batteries to store energy. DC flows in one direction through a conductor.
The capture of energy produced at one time for use at a later time. Households can use batteries to store solar energy generated by solar energy systems during the day for use during the evening. By storing energy, users can increase their energy independence, self-consumption, and the RoI of their solar system.
A way to increase the output of a solar energy system. Oversizing a solar energy system means that solar production has a higher peak capacity than the inverter rating. Simply put, oversizing is a cost-effective way to maximize a solar energy system’s production by increasing the total capacity of the solar panels so that it is higher than the capacity of the inverter. While energy will be lost at peak production, more energy will be harvested throughout the day. Oversizing can also be a good way to increase solar energy production in areas where inverter size is restricted.
