With the recent random power outages this month due to the thinning supply of electricity in the grid, and the warning given by the Department of Energy and NGCP that the yellow and red alerts in Luzon may last up to August, a lot of Solaric clients are not just looking to cut down their monthly electric bills but also want an energy security when the power goes out.
The great news is that you can beat the brownout with a SMILE!
Solar and battery setups
Integrating batteries in a solar energy system is not new in the market. In fact, Solaric has already done multiple projects that involve off-grid and hybrid setups. These solar setups are typically for people who want to have greater control on the energy harvested by their solar panels, and for those who prefer or require energy backup during power outages.
The batteries or energy storage systems are used to store the energy coming from the solar panels that can be later used for night time consumption when the sun is out, or simply when a brownout unexpectedly strikes. Batteries also serve as backup whenever during cloudy or rainy days, or when there is simply not enough solar energy to supply your loads.
The AlphaESS SMILE5
The Alpha SMILE5 includes a hybrid inverter module and lithium battery modules that can store enormous amount of energy enough to run an air conditioning unit on a normal day and definitely more than enough to power emergency appliances and light loads on your home during a brownout. Amazingly, they can last for at least ten years compared to lead acid batteries that have only an approximate 2-year lifespan. The SMILE5 can also be charged either by solar or the grid, and is predominantly designed for energy independence.
Aside from that, the SMILE5 is also a European design award winner and works like a grid tie system, except that it’s hybrid and can detect excess power, and then divert it to charge the batteries before exporting to the grid. It can also detect when the house is starting to use grid power. At this point, it can discharge the battery to keep the grid consumption to zero until the battery runs out. Then the battery gets recharged by solar the next day.
The price for energy independence
Although it costs about 40% more compared to a typical grid tie system, lithium battery setups continue to gain popularity especially with the news of energy and power insufficiency we encounter yearly. It also gives a good 10-year warranty and energy security for people who want to fully maximize the solar energy harvested from their systems for self-consumption. Additionally, it brings peace of mind to people who always want to be laging handa. It certainly is a good investment for those who likes to take it a step further in terms of being disaster-prepared and brownout-ready.
