Three phase SolarEdge & MyEnergi products with Whole Home Backup

For this large domestic project on Droskin Point, Perranporth, Cornwall, we were asked to provide a quote to meet the clients energy needs, as well as provide the best solution for full home backup in the event of a grid outage.
There will be a second phase of this project once an extension is built.
This was an upgrade to an existing system, we removed the previous single phase inverter and panels, and added extra panels to this roof to expand the system.

For this install we proposed the installation of 5 x 4.8kWh SolarEdge LV storage batteries, a 6.64kWp SolarEdge Optimised PV array (to be expanded to 12kW+ soon), a 10kW 3 phase SolarEdge inverter and a MyEnergi 3 phase 22KW tethered Zappi.
This combination makes great use of the generated power, sending the energy to the house>batteries>EV respectively.
We also installed the brand new SolarEdge 3 Phase whole home backup gateway.  This 3 phase gateway and inverter package is fresh off the production line, and this whole 3 phase SolarEdge install was one of the first in the UK!!

Due to the clients existing flat roof we were able to install 16 x 415W JA Solar PV Modules, optimised by SolarEdge Optimisers to ensure maximum output per panel.

We installed the panels on Renusol Console Tubs, with enough ballast to withstand the Cornish wind!

Once the clients extension is built, we will increase the size of the installation to suit the 10kW 3 phase inverter, audding at least another 10kW worth of PV modules to ensure the inverter can work really well through the winter, providing green energy even during the dullest of days.

One of the best features of this 3 phase setup however is the facility to operate all 3 phases of the home in a power outage.
Not only that, but it allows the 3 phase inverter to operate in islanding mode, producing energy to charge the battery and power the home even when the power remains off.  This is not possible with Tesla Powerwalls, as they are single phase, they cannot provide power to a 3 phase inverter.

If the grid goes down, the clients home is rapidly backed up by the backup reserve in the batteries, and if available during the day, the solar PV will also supply power into the property, until the power is restored.
Through the SolarEdge app, a notification is pushed, telling the client they are running from the back up reserve.
This will allow the client to conserve power switching off any higher powered loads.

The clients EV is charged via the new 3 phase 22KW Zappi.  This provides power in ECO+ mode across 3 phases, so effectively makes use of excess across all 3 phases.  If required the client can power their EV via FAST charge, and input 22kW to their EV for rapid domestic charging.

Monitoring of the whole system is provided by the MyEnergi and SolarEdge apps, providing data for every aspect of the installation.

This was a great project to work on, and our client is very happy with the system we have designed for them which is future proof, and will allow indefinite operation even without the grid in operation!
