Fronius Energy Package – Battery Storage

Maximising the benefits of your panels. Euan Angus can design a system for you that utilises the recently announced Fronius Energy Package.

From Fronius:

24H sun” is the Fronius vision of how energy will be supplied in the coming decades. The Fronius Symo Hybrid is a major step towards this vision. Boasting power categories ranging from 3.0 to 5.0 kW, the transformerless inverter allows unused energy from a photovoltaic system to be stored in a battery. The result: maximum self-consumption of the available power and maximum energy independence. Excess solar power can thus be used at times when generating conditions are poor or impossible. With the emergency power function, the household can enjoy an optimum electricity supply even during power outages. Perfect system configuration and visualisation are provided by the built-in web server with graphical interface, WLAN and Ethernet.

The RET

As most people will be aware, the RET (Renewable Energy Target) is under threat from the Abbott government. The consultative process has been rigged. The information fixed to fit the agenda the agenda.

This should be of great concern to intelligent people with a basic grasp of physics and chemistry, but unfortunately, dogma and delusion get in the way of considered thoughtful policy, at least for this government.
Below are some links to a number of resources that cover the issue.
It is really very simple. The RET works, which is why what can only be realistically called The Filthy Energy Industry, wants it removed.
When the RET is gutted, they stand to gain $10 billion, to continue to add to the CO2 burden of the atmosphere.
Future??? What’s that?

Climate Institute Video on the details.

 

Clean Energy Council have something to say too.

And HERE is the opinion of somebody who ought to know what they are talking about. A transcript of more information.

Perhaps it is time to call your government representative?

Erasmus School gains Sun Power

Erasmus School 20.3 kW install

Erasmus School 20.3 kW install

Erasmus School in Hawthorn, a happy existing customer, have expanded their solar power capacity and now boast a 20.3 kW system. Read more about it HERE.

There are countless other businesses and organisations who would can similarly benefit themselves and the climate. Talking to us at Euan Angus Solar, to determine what system we can design to best suit YOUR individual needs. You owe it to yourselves to get the benefits that Solar PV can offer.

Battery Back-Up is Here.

You have been reading about it and wondering whether it is worth it. After careful consideration of the pros and cons, one of customers recently decide it was and has gone ahead and is now experiencing the benefits of Integrated Solar PV/Battery Storage. They are now almost complete independent of the grid.

We recently installed a solar PV / battery storage hybrid system in Glen Iris.  The client now has a complete home energy system that provides most of their electricity, both day and night, 24/7.  The main grid is now simply a backup in case solar energy is very low.

In simple terms, excess solar energy that’s generated during the day is stored in batteries, ready for re-use when there is no Sun – hence both day and night, they are using power generated from their roof .

With this project, an important feature for the client was energy independence, particularly during times of grid outage in very hot weather.  They now have the security of knowing that when the grid goes down, their appliances will continue to operate from their battery storage system – all managed by the brilliant Selectronic SP PRO.

For those interested in some technical detail, the system has a 4.06 kWp LG solar PV array, using the highly efficient LG 290 Watt NeoN modules.  The array is connected to a Selectronic MyGrid battery storage system, which includes German Sonnenshein sealed lead-acid batteries with 10 kWh’s of useable battery storage.

The heart of the system is the Selectonic SP PRO inverter, which is arguably one of the best off-grid inverters on the market.  The SP PRO has a huge range of control parameters; it manages both solar energy and battery condition and communicates directly with the Kaco (German) grid-connected inverter.  The SP PRO will maximise self-consumption of their roof-top solar energy into the home, as well as maintaining battery condition and ensuring they never run out of power.  The best thing is the SP PRO is designed and manufactured right here in Chirnside Park, which is fantastic.  (NB: the SP PRO is now exported and distributed in Europe by Kaco, a leading German inverter manufacturer – that’s a real credit to Selectronic).’

You too could experience the comfort and security of knowing you are almost completely independent of the unremitting price rises that the power companies are helpfully telling us, will continue.
