How can homes share solar power? | Electricity


We founded sonnen with the idea that every home supplies itself with self-generated solar power 24/7, regardless of whether the sun is shining or not. Now part of Shell, sonnen is making this possible with a home battery which stores electricity made from sunlight, providing renewable energy around the clock.

About 20 years ago I built my house here, and I didn’t think about where the energy was coming from. In 2014 I bought an electric car, and then it was really logical to go further, with having solar power on my roof and the battery in my basement.

The great thing about the sonnenBatterie is that it’s fully automatic. There are no complicated buttons, no displays, nothing at all. It simply stores excess solar power when available and releases it when you need it.

The latest generation of sonnenBatterie contains the experience of nine product generations. It is designed to provide you with 10,000 cycles, which means the battery can be charged and discharged 10,000 times.

Typically, homes draw their power from the electrical grid – a national electricity transmission system. But sonnen has reimagined this system, linking their solar-charged batteries to the grid. We have a normal connection to the grid, but the big advantages during the day, we can cover all energy needs with the sun directly, and the battery is charging, too.

And in the night, all energy we use is from the battery, so we don’t use the grid in normal conditions. Linking to the grid allows battery owners to be part of the sonnenCommunity. The sonnenCommunity is basically people who are sharing power with each other.

The way this works is we aggregate thousands of sonnenBatteries to form a large virtual battery. And that battery can not only put power into the grid, it can also pull power from the grid. By sharing its electricity with the grid, the sonnenCommunity has constant access to renewable energy.

And it’s a network that’s growing worldwide, with communities in the USA and Australia. This is the energy future, and we are extremely proud to be part of the energy transition. sonnenCommunity’s a great thing.

Normally you have to pay every year, every month, your bill from the energy provider. Now I think it’s amazing. The sun doesn’t send us any bills, and that’s really nice. how can Holmes share solar power we found it’s on with the idea that every home supplies itself with self generated solar power 24/7 regardless if the sun is shining or not now part of shell Solon is making this possible with a home battery which stores electricity made from sunlight providing renewable energy around the clock about 20 years ago I pulled my house here and I didn’t think about where the energy is coming from in 2014 I bought an electrical car and then it was really logic to go further this having solar power on my roof and the battery in my basement the great thing about the zonal battery is that it’s fully automatic there is no complicated buttons no displace nothing at all it simply stores excess solar power when available and releases it when you need it the latest generation of Sun and battery contains the experience of nine product generations it is designed to provide you with 10,000 cycles which means the battery can be charged and discharged 10,000 times typically homes draw their power from the electrical grid a national electricity transmission system
