SolarEdge has partnered with Tesla and LG to design a solar inverter that works with their batteries - the SolarEdge StorEdge Hybrid Inverter. The StorEdge Hybrid Inverter uses a DC coupling architecture to allow you to store your PV power in a Tesla Powerwall or LG Chem RESU home battery directly (no AC conversion loss) while maintaining a connection to the grid. During a grid outage, the stored power in your Tesla Powerwall or LG Chem RESU home battery automatically begins powering your most important loads.
This newly updated version comes integrated with a 5-year cell modem, and can accept an external rapid shutdown signal/closure. This means the inverter can be installed indoors with a rapid shutdown switch installed outside where emergency personnel can access it for shutdown during a fire or other emergency.
The SolarEdge Auto Transformer, SolarEdge Electricity Meter, and two 200A Current Transformers are required for all StorEdge systems using battery backup, and are available separately on the "Accessories" tab.
Tesla Powerwall / LG Chem RESU battery storage is not included and must be purchased separately.
