Compare Sonnen Solar Batteries, Prices & Reviews
A sonnenBatterie will allow your home or business to get much more out of your future or existing solar panel system.
Adding a sonnenBatterie to a solar PV system could potentially see solar energy usage in your property increase to 75% of your annual energy consumption. That means only 25% of energy used would be supplied by your energy supplier – allowing you to make huge savings on your energy bills.
There are 3 different Sonnen solar batteries available, each able to meet different demands: sonnenBatterie eco, sonnenBatterie hybrid and sonnenBatterie pro.
For a property with a solar PV system already installed, the sonnenBatterie eco is the best option in the Sonnen range as it can be fitted to a solar system of any size. This lithium-ion phosphate solar battery allows you to monitor your energy consumption as well as store excess renewable energy for use when the solar panels aren’t generating any electricity.
The sonnenBatterie eco can be scaled in steps of 2kWh so even after installation you can continue to increase the maximum storage should your energy demands increase.
|Usable Capacity (kWh)||4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16|
|Dimensions (H x W x D)||4 – 8 kWh: 55 x 26 x 14 inches
10 – 16 kWh: 75 x 26 x 14 inches
|Weight (lbs)||377 – 800|
|Guaranteed Lifetime||10,000 cycles or 10 years|
|Warranty||Inverter: 10 years
Modules: 10 years
Cabinet and components: 1 year
It can also store excess energy generated by mini wind turbines, heat pumps or a fuel cell too.
The sonnenBatterie hybrid acts as a solar inverter as well as a solar battery. An inverter is a vital part of any solar PV system as it converts the direct current (DC) from the panels into alternating current (AC) which can be used around the home.
The biggest benefit of this is that you’ll be saving space as you only need room for the solar battery.
|Nominal Capacity (kWh)||5, 7.5, 10, 12.5 and 15|
|Depth of Discharge||100%|
There are 3 different cabinets in the sonnenBatterie hybrid range that offer a range of capacities in varying module sizes.
