This is a new install and will not show on google yet. (You are looking at the neighbours)The batteries are 2x BYD B-Plus 2.5 kwh Lithium Ion Battery.2.7Kw composed of 9 panels LG300S1C-A5http://www.lg.com/us/business/solar-panel/all-products/lg-LG300S1C-A5The batteries are now active (27th June) so you will get a good idea going forward how it plays out.The second bit is a bit of wishful thinking based on some research. The ‘full’ spectrum panels that will pop up in a few years will see 3x the performance of those currently available. With that and some form of long term storage based on efficient hydrogen production and a 4Kw fuel cell etc.
Thanks for the clarification. Over the year (ours was installed May 2016) I have noticed a few “issues” which I really need/want to understand. A quick glance at your dashboard suggests that your installation may experience similar issues. Don't get me wrong, I am delighted with the way the SolaX X-Hybrid works and without doubt we have saved money over the last year. I think it's best to deal with each issue separately to start with.
SolaX recommends that the minimum battery discharge setting should be 20%. The main reason for this is to maintain sufficient battery capacity should you need to switch to EPS mode during a power cut (do you have EPS mode and have you used it?) From reading up about the type of Lithium Ion batteries we have I see it is recommended that they should NOT be totally discharged so that may be another reason.
Now the issue I have occasionally seen is that the battery (3 physical = 1 logical) does indeed stop discharging to power the house at 20% (exactly what time this happens will depend on how good a generating day it has been) but then it will continue to gradually discharge and the lowest I have seen it is 9%. Presumably you are familiar with the way the SolaX X-Hybrid increments the generation meter as it discharges the battery? … they call it “deferred generation”. What this means in practice is that discharging the battery from 100% > 20% clocks up the generation meter by the appropriate kWH which is fine. However, I have noticed that when the battery continues to gradually discharge below that 20% threshold that energy is NOT clocked up on the generation meter. That's 10% of previously PV generated energy lost/leaked?? One of the selling points of the SolaX X-Hybrid is that it has no effect whatever on the FIT income you receive before/after (in the case of a retrofit like mine). In view of this occasional (a couple of times a week) “lost/leaked energy” I beg to differ. I have 2 PV systems in close proximity … ours 3kWH (12 panels) and our son's 2.5kWH (10 panels). In the few years up to May 2016 i.e. before our SolaX was installed it was almost guaranteed that our larger system would generate proportionally more than his smaller system. In the last year this has never been the case and I can only assume it's this unaccounted for leaked power that explains the difference.
I've had a quick look at your SolaX graphs and see that on some occasions your battery has gone down with no obvious explanation e.g. 14/5/2017 0245 it was at 42% then by 0320 it was at 0%. There may be more instances you have noticed. Looking forward to your thoughts on this issue.
