SolarEdge, StorEdge, Backup Interface, with 5kW Autoformer, Import/Export Meter, Main Lug Only rated for Load Side Connection, BI-NUSGN-01
When the grid goes down, the SolarEdge home backup solution automatically provides complete or partial home backup electricity, day or night. In addition to its on-grid capabilities for optimizing self-consumption and electricity savings, unused solar power is retained in a high voltage battery, such as LG Chem RESU, for use during grid disruptions, providing increased homeowner energy independence. During grid outages, the backup interface connects to the Energy Hub inverter (sold separately) and provides automatic backup power to complete or partial home loads. It gives homeowners complete control over increasing household loads to backup. For faster installs, the backup interface comes pre-installed with the SolarEdge energy meter (for self-consumption management) and the auto-transformer (for split-step balancing).
The SolarEdge Backup Interface BI-NUSGN (without the 200A main breaker) can be fed from the main panel and used as an isolation mechanism for critical loads (up to 200A) to remain operational during a grid outage for partial home backup. The BI also has a generator input link for long-term outages. When solar resources are small, the addition of a generator will allow the system to withstand longer outages.
