ANTON'S EXPERIENCE WITH EDGEIQ™

 

THE PROBLEM

ARE YOU MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR SOLAR PANELS?

Solar is a smart investment, but high grid voltage can drag down the performance of your panels, resulting in extra costs and lower savings. Without visibility of how your system is performing, you could be missing out on significant savings.

Increased

solar harvest

Reduced energy consumption

EdgeIQ gives you full visibility of how your solar panels are performing, reduces your energy consumption and improves your carbon footprint.

Solar inverters can disconnect if grid voltage goes above 254V

255V

Networks deliver voltages as high as 270V

Household appliances need only 225V

High penetration and concentration of residential solar installations has increased the overall voltage level across the Network. High voltages force your appliances to consume more electricity than they need to run, resulting in expensive bills. Running high voltages into your home also means you need to use more of your solar power to supply your own needs, leaving less solar power to sell back to the grid.

 

If grid voltages are running higher than 250 volts, your overall solar benefits will be decreased by up to 15%.

High electricity bills

Appliances take in much more power than they need to run

Inefficiency and
voltage lock-out  

Solar harvest is reduced
by up to 15% and inverters automatically disconnect if voltage goes above 254 volts

Reduced lifespan

Appliances burn out and inverter lifespan is reduced

IMPACTS OF HIGH VOLTAGE

THE SOLUTION

MAXIMISE YOUR SAVINGS WITH
EDGEIQ

Edge’s unique EdgeIQ is a globally-patented Voltage Optimisation device which gives you full visibility of how your solar system is performing. It reduces your electricity consumption, increases your solar yield and reduces your carbon footprint.

EdgeIQ reduces the voltage into your home

255V

225V

Excess solar energy is exported back to the grid

EdgeIQ reduces the voltage running into your home to a steady 225 volts. This allows your appliances to take in only the amount of power they need to run, and increases your solar harvest by up to 15%.

Low electricity bills

Appliances take in only the power they need to run, which instantly reduces your consumption

Hassle-free

You don’t have to change your usage behaviour at all

Solar efficiency

Solar harvest is increased by up to 15%, giving you more electricity to sell back to the grid

Manages voltage lock-out

Reduces over voltage problems

Smart and interactive

Panel performance and energy usage is monitored in real-time through a simple customer interface

Appliance protection

Appliances and inverters are protected from damaging voltage spikes (up to 10,000 volts)

BENEFITS OF EDGEIQ

HOW WE'VE HELPED PEOPLE

"We are relieved to know that, whatever happens to grid voltage in the future, the EdgeIQ is there to protect and optimise our solar investment, and ensure everything runs at maximum efficiency.”

High grid voltages (above 257 volts) caused Rob's solar and battery system to disconnect for five days every week! We installed EdgeIQ and reduced the grid voltage coming into Rob’s home to a steady 220 volts, ensuring that Rob could generate energy whenever the sun was out and receive the full benefits of his solar investment.
