Fronius releases the GEN24 solar inverter
Ensuring the optimum safety and a high-level of self-consumption for solar energy production, Fronius has expanded its product portfolio with the introduction of the GEN24 solar inverter.
Building on the proven Fronius GEN24 Plus hybrid inverter, the Fronius GEN24 is the latest Fronius inverter for the home. At first glance, both products are almost identical in name, and boast the usual Fronius quality and specific features.
The Fronius GEN24 is a versatile inverter that comes with an integrated basic backup power function, the PV Point. In the event of a power failure, a load such as a radio or cell phone charger or even a small circuit up to 3kW, can be supplied with single-phase power via a separate, protected outlet without any additional components being needed.
This represents an important step toward independence from the public grid and energy self-sufficiency.
“With the Fronius GEN24, our customers are less reliant on the public grid and also save a significant amount of money,” Fronius International product marketing solar energy Leonhard Peböck says.
“Our inverter offers them the efficient solution of using the electricity from their own PV system as long as the sun is shining. In times of volatile energy prices, this is a particular benefit of the GEN24.”
As a hybrid inverter, the Fronius GEN24 Plus combined with a battery enables excess, self-generated solar power to be stored and consumed even during low sun/nighttime hours, bringing 24 hours of sun into the home.
Thanks to the additional Full Backup option, the entire household and even large loads are still reliably supplied with electricity in the event of a power failure.
