Electricity demand of typical households will triple in the future: Besides conventional consumption, we will need electricity to charge our electric vehicles and drive our heat pumps to keep us warm.
Solarnative’s Smart Energy Home system helps you generate the electricity you need — with a sustainable and independent setup.
Make the most of your available roof space! Maximize your independence from power suppliers, rising prices and questionalble energy sources, while optimizing your personal carbon footprint.
In a PV system with Solarnative micro-inverters, each module is controlled individually. All kinds of different roof orientations, inclinations, and shading conditions can be combined easily to maximize the power of your home PV system. Unlike common systems with string inverters, each module runs at its individual maximum power point making sure sure that you always get the highest possible amount of energy out of your modules. The Solarnative PV system for homeowners delivers up to 30 % more energy than a standard system on the same roof.
Unlike the usual string inverter system, our PV system has no dangerous DC voltages whatsoever. Standard PV systems for homewoners have a system voltage of up to 1,000 volts running over the roof and down to the string-inverter inside the house. This high voltage can provoke arcing on faulty or corroded plug connections or on connections made manually during installation, which in the worst case can cause a fire. Moreover, the voltage cannot be switched off — not even in the event of a fire — thus complicating the work of firefighters, posing a danger to them and the building.
With the Solarnative PV system, you are always on the safe side, since the direct current generated by the PV module is converted into alternating current right at the source. Arcing cannot occur in an AC system, so there’s no need to worry about a fire caused by your PV plant. The entire system — on the roof and inside your home — has only 230 volts, i.e. the normal European grid voltage. Besides that, your Solarnative PV system does not pose a risk if there is a house fire of a different cause: as soon as the system is disconnected from the house grid, for example by means of the safety switch or because a cable has melted in the heat of the fire and caused a short circuit, the inverters switch off automatically and the firefighters can do their work without hindrance.
The Solarnative Power Stick is built to last and comes with a limited warranty of 25 years, matching the usual warranty timespan of PV modules.
Standard string inverters for residential PV installations typically come with product warranties of only 5–7 years and the opportunity to purchase a warranty extension. Therefore, when choosing a string inverter, it is wise to plan for replacing the device at least once during the lifetime of your PV system or extend the warranty if possible.
The Solarnative Smart Energy Home is a modular system that can easily be expanded at a later point in time — whether you want to add more capacity on your roof, expand to further areas such as your carport, or add an electric vehicle charging station or battery storage to your system. There is no limitation to the number of devices in your Solarnative system, so you can adapt it to your needs at any time.
The Solarnative Smart Energy Home is compliant with the world’s strictest regulations regarding grid support functionality, and it is designed to be ready for future applications and technologies: we combine intelligent grid services with smart functionalities such as consuming and storing power predominantly at times it is cheap and abundantly available. You will be able to use vehicle-to-home bidirectional charging, and your battery and electric vehicle can become active players in the energy system of the future. We consider our technology an integral part of the green energy transition into a climate-neutral future. Let us take you on the journey!
