SolarEdge, a world leader in smart energy, recently announced a new product: an Energy Hub Inverter with Prism Technology. The Energy Hub establishes itself as a part of the next generation of home backup solutions for higher efficiency and greater flexibility. SolarEdge boasts this new technology, calling out its key capabilities:
- One storage solution to back up the entire home
- One inverter that does it all: ready for battery and EV charging, includes built-in energy monitoring.
- One flexible system to meet every future homeowner’s needs.
The best way to take advantage of this robust system? Pair it with a home backup battery.
SolarEdge Energy Hub & Backup Batteries
When paired with a backup battery, the Energy Hub allows for larger installations and provides incredibly high energy yields.
With any system, energy gets lost, which is why efficiency rates make such a substantial difference. By installing the SolarEdge Energy Hub along with a battery and backup interface, you can expect to see 200% DC oversizing. This allows you to install larger systems, and the energy that you would normally lose in an AC-coupled solution can now redirect to a battery for optimizing self-consumption.
Overall, homeowners with this kind of solution will see 90.8% overall system efficiency. One of the biggest differentiators; however, comes in the high power yield uncommonly seen in other systems. With this, your system can back up more to 200A—full home or partial. You can even power stack batteries. By doing so, you will see increased production and storage to keep your entire home covered in the event of an outage or blackout.
The Future is Electric
We are sure you have seen that phrase before, especially recently. And, although it cannot begin to express the dynamic and intricate nature of the transition to net-zero emissions, it does a good job in expressing the urgency of the electrification of the global transportation industry.
Electric car deployment has been growing rapidly over the past ten years, with the global stock of electric passenger cars passing 5 million in 2018, an increase of 63 percent from the previous year. Experts estimated 5.2 million charging points worldwide at the end of 2018, up 44 percent from the year before.
More and more places, like Calfironia, have embraced the push for electric vehicles. Recently, the governor of California, Gavin Newsom, signed an executive order requiring that, by 2035, all new cars and passenger trucks sold in California be zero-emission vehicles.
In short, this means homeowners like you should start considering (if you haven’t already) purchasing an electric vehicle. You should also look into home EV Charging stations so you can power your car without leaving the house.
SolarEdge Energy Hub & EV Charging Stations
The Energy Hub inverter combines all the capabilities of existing residential inverters in a single solution. Not only is it DC-coupled battery-ready, it has reconfigurations that allow it to connect to a Level 2 Smart EV Charger. This allows for driving on up to 100 percent sunshine. And with a built-in consumption meter, homeowners can track usage and reduce bills.
You can easily use the Energy Hub to not only completely manage your solar system, but also support your EV. The robust Energy Hub allows for full visibility and control of EV charging and all smart energy in one app.
