Why Solar?

Have you ever suffered from Power Cuts in your home?


It can be frustrating to arrive home to discover that the power has gone out again, sometimes for hours.

By the time the electricity returns, your fridge may have defrosted, your stored food gone off, you have no light, no broadband, and you cannot even cook for the family.  If you’ve experienced Power Cuts the same as many homeowners in North Dublin, Wicklow, Cork, and other places throughout the country, a SolarEdge Solar System with Automatic Back-up Interface could be the solution for you.


With most Solar systems, when you experience a power cut your system must shut down from then grid.  This is to stop electricity from your solar system flowing back to the grid and potentially electrocuting ESB Networks personnel working to fix the problem.  Some Solar Systems have a double socket that allows you to connect a battery connect to critical items when there is a power cut.   But, to connect the battery, you must be at home when the power fails and maybe have get up in the middle of the night to find your torch so that you can plug in your extension lead.

Some Solar Systems, such as Huawei Solar Backup Box, allow you to get a semi-automatic switch which powers some of your essential load.  However, to use this you must be at home when the power fails.

A SolarEdge Solar System with Automatic Back-up Interface installed by VEEP Energy will give you FULL emergency backup power in the event of a power cut even when you are not at home.
