Congratulations in being invited to participated in our Solar Energy Independence Initiative (Program). The reason for our program is to observe, monitor, evaluate and measure the effectiveness and efficiency on how different solar batteries perform in the domestic environment. This data will help us develop a range of energy monitoring software and hardware products to better suit Australian households of different sizes and requirements.
Solar battery storage is a relatively new product to the Australian solar industry and bridges the gap in current solar panel systems whereas most households utilise more energy in the evening than only during the day and solar battery storage stores this unused energy for when the household begins energy usage in the day.
Under our Solar Energy Independence Initiative (Program) we have two programs to help get you total energy independence whether your home currently has solar or do not.
For households with current solar installations we are able to monitor and evaluate how the solar batteries interact with pre-existing systems, whether usage patterns change or remain the same, amount of energy exported to the grid etc.
For households without current solar installations we can monitor and evaluate how households interact with solar PV and battery storage without prior solar.
By running these two programs with households with or without current solar systems, we can evaluate if the results vary between new or existing systems.
