BATTERY STORAGE FOR YOUR HOME
Designed for the UK homes with zero feed in tariff losses When it rains we don’t always want or need to use the water immediately, so we built reservoirs to store the water. Why would we go to all the effort of purchasing and installing self generating energy systems then give the fruits of our labour back to the provider ie (the grid), at wholesale prices, only then to import the same energy back from the provider at four and five times the price you supplied it just a few hours earlier, its time to get smart “Clearly as we move through the challenging economic climate ahead, seeking out and implementing cost saving opportunities is going to be paramount for UK homesGlyn Cooper – Ecocute Director
GDME mainly focuses on the development, manufacture and sales of high- efficient, cost-effective and differential energy storage inverters.
GMDE strive to provide highly reliable and efficient green energy solutions worldwide, maximizing the value for the end user.
Quality control program ensures that each product is produced according to exact specifications and is thoroughly tested. In total 136 different tests are conducted.
GMDE consider reliability of its products, service and after sales a priority, so chooses its global partners very carefully, we choose a partner that is financially strong, strategically placed and are able to offer dedicated UK end user support and service.
Ecocute had a very special role to play in product development, design and testing for the UK market. UK Beta testing program was completed in May 2016, sales and shipping commenced June 2016 Ecocute Based in Yorkshire and have strategically placed service engineers to cover the whole of UK.
WHY? BATTERY STORAGE FOR THE HOME
Solar PV generates and produces energy in the form of DC (Direct Current) Typically a household would normally use around 30% of the total energy generated by a homes solar panels, resulting in around 70% sent back to the grid with very little or no benefit to the generator, storing this excess energy efficiently to enhance incentive payments without effecting them is paramount when choosing the right battery storage system.
ECOCUTE offer two types of battery storage systems, both systems store excess solar energy to a Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (LFP) battery, both systems are stackable and expandable, both offer FREE system monitoring, and have a 6000 battery cycle life, both have emergency back up load option however both systems charge and discharge very differently, its important to note that conversion from DC to AC and AC to DC will undoubtedly incur slight conversion losses, so its important that you choose the right system in order to maximize the return of investment.
WHICH IS BEST FOR ME?
This will depend on your personnel circumstances.
If your just starting out and looking to combine a new solar PV system with battery storage, then the sensible choice would be the Hybrid version, simply because the Hybrid is battery ready, and there would no need to purchase a separate inverter for the solar PV system.
If you all ready own a Solar PV system and looking to add or retro fit battery storage, then you will no doubt receive a high rate Feed in Tariff, in order to protect this incentive the sensible choice would be the AC version, which can be simply retro fitted with ZERO FEED IN TARIFF LOSS.
HYBRID BATTERY STORAGE
Hybrid system is a complete all in one solution and would replace a standard inverter, The Hybrid Inverter can replace any aging or broken string inverter making a normal solar PV system battery ready, The Hybrid system would make a perfect choice if you were considering a new all in one solar PV and battery system or wanted to integrate in a new build home.
The Hybrid system is designed to maximize efficiency and charges directly to the DC side of a solar PV system incurring little to no conversion loss, the only loss is incurred when converting the DC back from the battery to usable AC, because this conversion is before the energy is passed through the generation meter this will undoubtedly effect FEED IN TARIFF payments, the more the FIT rate the greater the loss.
Hybrid can replace any standard string inverter however will not work with micro inverters or voltage optimizers.
HYBRID BATTERY STORAGE
AC system is a direct add on that works alongside a normal string or micro inverter and installed on the AC side of a solar PV system. The AC System is designed to maximize Feed in Tariff payments and will give the most benefit to customers with a high rate tariff, the system does this by charging and discharging only after the energy as passed through the generation meter, less emphasis is based on conversion efficiency and there is slightly more conversion loss however this would of course be excess energy which otherwise would be sent back and lost to the grid.
The AC system would make a perfect choice if you were considering adding a battery system to an existing PV system, AC system is undoubtedly cheapest way of adding battery storage to an existing solar PV systems.
AC system can add to any solar PV systems and will work with micro inverters or voltage optimized solar Pv system.
TYPICAL HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCES AND USAGE
The power required to run equipment in the home everyday varies with each electrical device.
Appliances such as microwaves, irons, toaster ovens and hairdryers require high current for short periods of time.
Appliances such as televisions, computers, fan and refrigerators use low current for extended periods of time.
For example if all of the following devices are used once a day for the said time, the total usage will be less than 1,500 watt hours.
