Keeping the Lights on When the Grid Goes Down
In addition to on-grid capabilities, the StorEdge DC-coupled backup solution automatically provides homeowners with backup power during grid failures.
Unused solar power is stored in a battery and used when needed during a power outage or when solar production is insufficient to meet the household energy demand. When there is a power outage, a combination of solar and battery is used to power important loads such as the refrigerator, TV, lights and AC outlets, day or night.
StorEdge Backup Solution
The solution is based on a StorEdge single phase inverter which manages solar production, consumption, storage and backup power, and is compatible with high voltage LG Chem RESU batteries.
Existing Installations Powered by a Third-Party Inverter
To upgrade existing third-party installations, the StorEdge single phase inverter connects to the third-party inverter's AC output. The StorEdge inverter charges the battery using the solar power produced by the third-party inverter.
