Are balcony power plants winterized?2023-04-25T17:00:34+02:00

Solar modules are designed for temperatures between -40 and +85°C.
Frost, rain or moisture do not damage the solar module. The modules are therefore winterproof and can be operated all year round.

Functionality of the ARVEY E-Fill H300 balcony power plants2023-04-25T17:01:51+02:00

A balcony power plant is basically a small solar system consisting of one or more solar panels connected to an inverter. This converts the direct current of the modules into normal household alternating current. In addition, there is the cabling to the socket and the attachment of the modules. The main advantage of a balcony power plant is that the solar power generated is fed directly into the home power grid. Household appliances then automatically use solar power instead of grid power.

“The Arvey E5 is interesting, but we’ll wait until battery prices come down and the technology matures.”2023-04-25T17:03:41+02:00

The technology is already mature. With our high-quality power electronics and long-life LFP batteries, the E-series already has an advantage over diesel and petrol generators (see question on costs). The first restrictions and bans for diesel-powered devices are being introduced and diesel prices will continue to rise.
Investing in battery-powered equipment is already paying off and will become even more attractive as fuel prices rise. And beyond that, in a few areas there is “the right moment” to switch to environmentally friendly alternatives. Active climate protection is needed immediately – on a small and large scale.
