SolShare Divides & Distributes Energy

SolShare is used to control the division of alternating current (AC) from a single supplementary power source to multiple loads, each of which have a parallel supply from the electricity grid.

The most common usage for the SolShare is to be supplied power by a grid-connected inverter as part of a rooftop photovoltaic (PV) system on a multi-unit building like an apartment building or multi-office/retail building.

SolShare delivers AC energy from this shared power source downstream of an apartment’s retail electricity meter, and monitors each apartment’s power draw from the electrical grid to inform the dynamic distribution of AC energy among the connected apartments.

Optimised Power Sharing

The SolShare monitors the connected units’ demand and instantaneously directs the supplied power to optimise power delivery to the units. It achieves this by monitoring two key data points: the total solar power that’s available to be delivered; and each connected unit’s demand from the grid.

The SolShare monitors the demand of each connected unit and every 200 milliseconds determines optional solar delivery to maximise on site solar, which directly correlates to maximising savings.

Solar energy consumption | Total energy demand

Being able to tailor the solar delivery 5 times a second results in up to 55% more solar being consumed on site when compared to if each apartment had their own individual solar system.

The behind-the-meter solution requires no change to smart meter infrastructure and is intuitively designed to make the installation process as simple as possible for solar installer partners.

SolShare is suitable for both three-phase and single-phase applications.
