Hello Frogster, we can help you out with that information. It's the SolarEdge Single Phase StoreEdge Inverter for Europe, APAC and South Africa SE5000-XXS/SE6000-XXS. Hope that helps! Thanks, Dave.

Thanks for info TheRealDave

 

The choice of SE5000-XXS/SE6000-XXS surprises me, firstly because it is DC coupled (unlike PowerWall and Sunverge SIS) so will interface directly to the existing solar panels and will replace customer installed inverters.

Also as I understand it each solar panel will have to be retrofitted with a SolarEdge power optimiser, which will involve some cost and labour.

Lastly it does not appear to be the latest generation of the SolarEdge product family, such as https://www.solaredge.com/sites/default/files/se-single-phase-HD-wave-inverter-datasheet.pdf or their AC coupled inverter https://www.solaredge.com/sites/default/files/storedge_ac_coupling_inverter_datasheet.pdf

As per the spec sheets these two devices seem to be fanless.

 

I am no expert on this so it is quite possible I am overlooking something, I guess I will wait for the offer to see the configuration.

 

Thanks again for quick reply.

I can't understand how I import electricity from the grid on days when the battery at any time never gets as low as 30%. Any ideas?

We paid our deposit for the Virtual power system in November 2017 & still havn`t heard from anyone 🙂 Is it still happening or are they waiting for an election?
