SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. (“SolarEdge”), a global leader in PV inverters, power optimizers, and module-level monitoring services, and LG Chem Ltd (“LG Chem”) announced the compatibility of SolarEdge’s StorEdge solutions and LG Chem’s new high voltage RESU10H and RESU7H batteries. The product compatibility will help further advance the accessibility to cost-effective residential solar generation, storage, and consumption.
With both on-grid and backup solutions, the new offering supports increasing self-consumption, providing power backup, and enabling energy independence. LG Chem’s RESU batteries use Li-ion technology, and their compactness allows for easy and flexible installation, both inside and outside. The RESU batteries have a high energy density and are designed for high efficiencies and a long lifetime.
Designed to manage both functions with just one SolarEdge DC optimized inverter, the combined solution will include remote monitoring and troubleshooting to keep operations and maintenance costs low. The StorEdge™ solution will support both DC and AC coupling. As with SolarEdge PV systems, StorEdge™ offers enhanced safety by reducing voltage to a safe level upon AC shut down when not in backup mode.
