Can the battery provide back-up power in case of a blackout?

Yes. If you select the back-up power option for your installation then up to 2 circuits in your home can be connected to the battery to receive back-up power in case of a blackout. While this will not power your entire home, it can provide power for your most essential items while you wait for grid power to be restored. When deciding which of your home’s circuits are connected to the battery for back-up power, we recommend the circuit your fridge is connected too (which will usually include a few additional power points for charging phones and laptops) as well as an important light circuit. The installer can provide you with detailed advice on which circuits to choose during your pre-installation inspection.

Is the system upgradable?

Yes. The Energy Intelligence that drives Evergen is regularly analysed and updated by CSIRO so that it is always up to date. The batteries are also modular, so that if you initially installed a system with one battery module inside, you can easily add up to 2 further modules later on. Evergen will also release innovations in the near future like the ability to manage when certain loads in your home such as a pool pump or hot water unit switch on and off, which can save even more money. All these upgrades are compatible with the Evergen Intelligent Energy System.

Can the system work with 3-phase power?

Yes. While the system is designed to operate on a single phase, in the case of a home with 3-phase power, the system can be connected to the one phase with the highest load. The installer can provide you with detailed advice on which phase is best for the system to be connected to during your pre-installation inspection.
