Grid-Tied (Net Metering) Battery Backup
Traditional grid-tied solar systems only operate when utility power is available. Without energy storage, a grid-tied PV solar system shuts down during a power outage. The combination of solar energy and battery storage works seamlessly to provide power to essential appliances during an outage, working similar to an off-grid system.
During the day, your home is powered by energy produced from your solar panels. At night during an outage, your home is powered by the excess energy produced by your solar panels and stored in your battery system.
An additional and profitable benefit of an energy storage system is the ability to reduce expensive, peak time-of-use utility charges. While not available in all utilities, storage systems can reduce your electric bill by allowing you to draw power from your batteries during peak rate hours and then recharging when the sun is shining and rates are lower.
Off-Grid Battery Backup
An off-grid system allows you to completely sever the connection to your electric utility. Battery technology has come a long way, but due to their high cost and limited power storage capabilities, off-grid systems are best suited for homes that have a significantly lower electric consumption than that of conventional homes and homes that are in remote locations with limited grid access.
Not only do off-grid systems require your solar panels to produce enough energy to offset 100% of your electric consumption (since you are not tied to the electric grid), but they also require a battery backup system. The battery backup system stores excess energy produced during the day and also provides a backup source of energy for nighttime consumption when your panels are not producing.
We Can Design a Battery Storage System That Meets Your Needs
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.

All-In-One Battery Backup Systems:
The sonnenBatterie eco is an energy storage solution that utilizes intelligent energy management software. It is easily adaptable to your individual needs. The system is available in a variety of storage capacities and configurations, allowing for extensibility and expansion. sonnenBatterie eco allows you to save money every single day by harvesting energy from your solar PV system or the grid when it is cheapest, and using the stored energy from the battery to power your home when rates are more expensive.
The sonnenBatterie residential and commercial storage systems only use lithium-iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery technology, one of the most reliable, safe and long-lasting lithium battery technologies currently available. LiFePO4 is one of the most popular technologies for stationary storage systems due to its uniquely high chemical stability and resulting extremely high application reliability, durability and long life. Our battery systems are guaranteed to last for 10,000 cycles or 10 years. All sonnenBatterie components and systems are also UL Listed ensuring safety and performance for your home or business.
The sonnenBatterie is a complete system – ready for connection. This means that inside of every sonnenBatterie you’ll find not only the extremely durable battery modules but also an inverter, an intelligent energy manager, measurement technology and the software to operate it all smoothly. All in one handy box. In contrast to most other battery systems in the market the sonnenBatterie components are build into a single high-quality casing and perfectly attuned to each other – thereby ensuring maximum longevity and the highest quality in a minimum of space.
The WAVE is the latest product to be developed by Sentinel, and the passion behind it shows in the finished product. The AHI™ Wave Complete Energy Storage System is a complete “plug and play” energy storage system that integrates the industry’s leading Aspen battery technology from Aquion Energy; incorporated with world-class inverter technology from Outback Power, within a fully engineered and robust enclosure. It is designed for residential and commercial use on new and existing grid interactive and off-grid applications. It is cleaner, safer, and smarter.
The WAVE was designed with three key drivers in mind; safety, simplicity and reliability. We believe strongly that not only do the products we produce need to work, but they need to be simple to install, this improves installer efficiency and lowers overall cost to the consumer.
