Energy Independence

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.

New Incentives

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.

SolarEdge Home Battery FAQ’s.

Important key terms and phrases.

Backup
A mode of operation for the solar inverter that uses a battery or batteries to provide backup energy in the event of grid failure.

Battery
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.

Battery Capacity
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.

Battery Coupling
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.

Energy Storage
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.

Oversizing
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.

Is it possible to buy the battery individually?

Yes, please contact Energy Partners for a site inspection and to find out more information on how you can benefit from installing a battery.

Will it be possible to use the new SolarEdge Home Battery for backup operation?
Yes, when the Home Battery has been installed with an Energy Hub inverter and the Backup Interface has also been installed and configured then backup is available to power your whole home if the grid fails – assuming you have sufficient single-phase battery and inverter capacity available. Three-phase homes can only backup single-phase.
Is there an anti-blackout function?
Yes, when the Home Battery has been installed with an Energy Hub inverter and the Backup Interface has also been installed then backup is available to power your whole home if the grid fails.
I have a three-phase SolarEdge system with low voltage LG storage. Is it possible to add a Home Battery retrofit system on this type of system?
Yes, it is possible to add a single-phase inverter, connected with 1-3 SolarEdge Home Battery batteries but the inverter will require at least the minimal kilowatts of panels of solar connected to it.
How many battery life cycles are there?
SolarEdge provides 10-year warranty for the battery that secures at least 70% of its energy capacity over that period, when operated according to its operational manual and warranty terms.
If one has existing solar and EV, is it possible to insert a Home Battery as a storage solution? Can the entire system then be programmed to operate with the desired priorities?
SolarEdge Home Battery can be coupled, with a Genesis or Energy Hub inverter to an existing system with at least the minimal kilowatts of panels of solar connected to it. Programming to manage the EV charge will be possible via a SolarEdge smart home relay or other control mechanism.
Will SolarEdge inverters continue to be compatible with other batteries (e.g. LG)?
Yes, with the LG Prime range.
Can I install 30 kilowatts of solar panels to my home with 3 inverters and 9 Home Batteries?

Yes, this configuration with 3 inverters each with 3 SolarEdge Home Batteries connected is the one that maximizes the potential of our nine Home Batteries solution.

In order to have backup capability do you need the Backup Interface (BUI) as well, not just the Energy Hub?
Correct, if you don’t have the BUI then the Energy Hub is a ‘Grid-connect PBV and Battery Inverter’ as per the CEC definitions. With the BUI it falls under the Multiple Mode category.
Will it be possible to implement the SolarEdge Home Network on existing inverters?
Yes, as long as the inverters are activated with SetApp. The new SolarEdge Home Network is therefore only compatible for inverters without an LCD display.
Can the Home Battery be installed in the living room?
Not in Australia, as AS/NZS 5139:2018 dictates that batteries must not be installed in habitable locations.
Is the Home Battery compatible with any VPP (Virtual Power Plant)? In other words, does it have some sort of API integration at the moment?
Yes, but the API for VPP is based on the inverter and not the battery.
My understanding was that the Genesis inverter could work with the battery (just without backup). Is this correct?

Yes, the Genesis will connect to the SolarEdge Home Battery although without the option for backup.

Will the Home Battery be supported with backup on the three phase hybrid inverters?
The SolarEdge three phase hybrid inverter doesn’t have the backup hardware for this capability. We are looking to launch a three-phase backup solution in the second half of 2022.
So, for HD-Wave inverters without the integrated StorEdge Interface (SESTI), there is no need to connect any other interface?

If there is an LG Prime or x 3 SolarEdge Home Battery are being installed, then the DC Combiner is required. If one or two of the SolarEdge Home Batteries are being connected, then the use of the DC Combiner is optional.

What distance range do you expect from the wireless communications?
End-to-end is around 50m (depending upon what’s in between). However, it’s a mesh network so additional devices with help to increase range.
Which current SetApp-based inverters are compatible with the Home Battery?
The SolarEdge Home Battery is compatible with the current single-phase Genesis, Energy Hub and HD-Wave inverters (all supporting SetApp). However, backup capability is only possible with Energy Hub + Backup Interface.
