SolarEdge for Homes & Businesses

Who is SolarEdge?

SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. is a U.S.-domiciled, Israel-headquartered provider of power optimizer, solar inverter and monitoring systems for solar photovoltaic systems.

Why SolarEdge?

SolarEdge Inverters are also called String-Inverters as opposed to Micro-inverters (MI).  Instead of MIs, SolarEdge’s Power Optimizers are integrated with solar panels.  Output from them is, however, DC.  Several power optimizers can be chained together, and the DC output is fed in to SolarEdge DC to AC inverters.

Using solar panels’ output as Direct Current, charging solar battery backup system is more efficient and simpler.

Why should I have an energy storage battery in my home? (This is Page 15 of 40 on PDF)

Here are some incredible benefits of solar energy storage batteries:

  1. Make the Most of Your Solar Power

Many electricity markets in Texas are deregulated.  In such markets, if any electricity is sent back to the utility grid from a solar energy system owner, Texas Laws do not require that the owner be properly compensated.  In that situation solar batteries help to store it and have owner use it in the night-time!

  1. Greater Energy Security

Solar battery systems allow your home to be more resilient when it comes to energy.  Particularly useful if you live in an area where the utility grid is occasionally unstable, or you simply want to provide a greater level of certainty for your home’s power, battery systems can power key aspects of your home for hours, even if the grid goes down.

  1. Reduce Your Home’s Carbon Footprint

Installing solar batteries allows you to reduce your home’s carbon footprint and bring it closer to self-sufficiency. This is essential for anyone who wants to “go green” and reduce pollution. Today, solar energy systems create much less pollution than traditional fossil fuels and can help a home consume fewer resources in the years to come.

  1. No Noise Pollution

Unlike (gas, diesel) generators, solar panels and battery storage systems do not create noise pollution that will bother your neighbors. This is a unique benefit and is a great way for anyone who currently has a generator to update their system.

  1. Reduced Electric Bills

One of the biggest benefits of energy storage systems is that they will help you save on your electricity costs. Back up your home with a battery system and you will avoid the fees associated with electricity retailers, create self-sufficiency, and save the electricity you generate. All these are huge bonuses!

Why Humless?

Humless systems offer battery storage solutions even if you have micro-inverter integrated solar energy system.  In technical terms, it is called AC-DC coupling.  Their advanced power electronics have the capability to accept AC inputs, converts it to DC which is used to charge the batteries.  Such back and forth conversations are not possible with LG Batteries.

Humless UNIVERSAL 10/4 

The Home Battery Backup Power

The Universal 10/4 is the smallest home battery backup power source in their Universal line. This unit is perfect for small homes and essential loads. This home solar battery system features 10 kWh’s of lithium (LiFePO4) battery storage, 3.4 kW (4 kVa) premium inverter, remote monitoring, and is stackable up to 2 units.

 

This system is an excellent power backup for home essential loads like lights, freezer, refrigerator, and outlets. A home battery backup system like the Universal 10/4 is essential for solar-powered homes and good home battery systems and gives you peace of mind knowing that you and your family are in good hands.

Even if your solar journey did not start with Humless, you can still enjoy our home battery systems and home battery backup power systems in your home. The Universal 10/4 can be retrofit to any existing solar power system. Have specific retrofitting questions? Contact us today.

Off-Grid and On-Grid Ready

Let us face it, a battery system is useless if it does not work when the grid fails. Home battery backup power is a must if you want to still have access to your battery system when the grid goes down. Our Home Systems work perfectly on and/or off the grid. You can now load shift, export to the grid, and have a system that works when the power goes out. Our power backup for the home gives you peace of mind and control when your neighbors may find themselves searching for candles and blankets. Single application energy storage systems are a thing of the past. The Humless solutions do everything you might need out of an ESS (Energy Storage System).
