SENEC launches new-generation hybrid solar battery
SENEC has launched the SENEC.Home V3, a hybrid solar battery. The latest battery can provide households with up to 90% solar power self-sufficiency with double the warranty of other batteries.
That means home owners with solar panels may only need to draw 10% of their current usage from the grid, potentially saving them thousands of dollars a year.
The SENEC.Home V3 delivers numerous benefits that haven’t been seen before including a 20-year warranty, a combined PV inverter and battery inverter, PV over-voltage protection safety, three-tier remote monitoring, unlimited solar recharging cycles and floor mounting rather than wall mounting for ease of installation.
“By doubling the warranty and integrating a raft of safety and other features into the SENEC.Home V3 Hybrid unit, home owners will have a huge incentive to buy a battery when they purchase their solar panels,” SENEC managing director Jaron Schächter says.
“This new hybrid battery can also be retrofitted to existing solar-powered homes,” he adds.
The hybrid design of the battery saves the customer from purchasing an additional PV inverter.
“This is another major advantage with our hybrid unit,” Jaron says.
“Its space-saving design makes installation simple and quick. With a footprint of just 0.29m², it is the most compact power storage system on the market. With its removable side panels, the SENEC.Home V3 Hybrid is easily accessible to the installer and specialist tools aren’t necessary.”
It’s estimated to save around $4,000 due to its ease of installation alone.
Three-tiered remote monitoring lets users monitor the PV production and house consumption every five minutes from the SENEC app.
A unique feature to the SENEC.Home V3 is that during a blackout or power failure, the two-phase emergency power supply is able to charge the battery with the PV panels, unlike any other renewable energy battery.
This turns the hybrid battery into a real emergency power supply, a critical element for people who need electricity at all times like the medical profession.
