StorEdge™ On-Grid Solution | SolarEdge | A World Leader in Smart Energy

StorEdge™ On-Grid Solution

SolarEdge’s StorEdge DC coupled storage solution can be used to increase energy independence for homeowners by utilizing a battery to store and supply power as needed. To optimize self-consumption, the battery is automatically charged and discharged to meet consumption needs and reduce the amount of power purchased from the grid. The solution is based on a single inverter for both PV and storage and is compatible with RESU7H and RESU10H batteries from LG Chem. 

Existing SolarEdge systems can also be upgraded to the StorEdge solution.
