In the hours without sun, self-generated electricity can be consumed until the battery is empty. Only then, grid power is drawn again. Depending on the size of the battery, the proportion of self-consumption can be increased - and thus the degree of energy self-sufficiency.
In order for the battery to work optimally, it is advisable to combine it with the energy management system. Every time there’s solar surplus, the excess energy will be stored to the battery. Only when the battery is "full", the excess electricity will be fed into the grid. This is where feed-in tariffs are an extra bonus to your electrical and economical independency.
Manage your cheap, green solar energy yourself
Our householder also commented on the complexity of energy bills. “People may not notice price rises because they’re sometimes hard to gauge – it depends on what you’re told.” The EnergyManager lets customers understand and monitor their electricity use so they’re getting the best out of their Vision glass-glass solar PV panels and MyReserve home storage battery. And the programme shows just how users can harness the sun’s natural power instantly, radically reducing reliance on the grid.
As information on your household energy flows is important for optimizing self-consumption, the EnergyManager Portal provides an overview of the data for power production and consumption based on multiple functions. For many, the portal really highlights their own energy use for the first time. With its intuitive, easy-to-use interface, you have an instant overview of all relevant information.
The EnergyManager is the ideal way to manage and understand your electric vehicle charging – an increasingly important function in the move towards cleaner road fuels. And because you can easily change settings or switch household appliances on and off remotely, changes to travel plans or the weather are no problem – you can switch on your household heating in a few clicks.
