Watt is it?
Watt are the benefits?
The average family home uses approximately 24kWh per day. With 4kW of solar panels and WattGrid you can save up to 17kWh per day, or 70% of your average daily use!
Peak solar generation time in most parts of Australia is from 10am to 2.15pm. During these hours 4kW of panels will produce 17kWh. As many families are at work and school during these hours, unused electricity gets exported back to the grid.
If you are being paid a high feed-in tariff you may well be happy with your situation. However, high feed-in tariffs are rapidly becoming a thing of the past, which means the best way to get value for your investment in solar is to save the PV generation with WattGrid and use it during the times of day you need it most.
4kW panels producing from 10am until 2.15pm = 17kW of electricity. 10kW is exported to WattGrid and the remaining 2kW per hour is used by the house through the solar generation hours. WattGrid then supplies the house with electricity through the late afternoon and evening.
UPS stands for Uninterrupted Power Supply. When or if the Grid electricity fails, the WattGrid unit will automatically default to UPS mode which will provide power to your home during the blackout. As there is limited power supply in this mode, we recommend that you nominate an electrical circuit in your home that is the most important for you. Eg. Your refrigerator and lighting circuit.

Watt’s My Personal Renewable Energy Target?
Australia’s Renewable Energy Target (RET) was put in place in 2001 in recognition of the impact that the burning of fossil fuels is having on our climate and the need to support our young renewable energy industries with economic investment and stimulus. The large scale and small scale RETs have been so effective that the future has indeed been looking bright as Australia led the world in innovation and domestic solar uptake. Sadly, the current government doesn’t agree, and measures that undermine the RET has meant that billions of dollars of investment has left the country. With the target cut back by nearly 25% and no effective emissions trading scheme in place, Australia’s Co2 levels are on the rise again.
WattGrid enables you to achieve your very own Personal Renewable Energy Target (P-RET) every single day by capturing and storing your PV generation, then using it when you need it rather than drawing from the grid.
WattGrid puts you back in control!
WattsHappening shows you real time information about your system in action. With load share capability, maximising the best use of your own generated electricity, WattGrid uses the stored power before it takes from the grid.

The Dawning of the Age of Renewables
Renewable energy is one of the fastest growing areas of investment. Australia has an abundance of sunshine, wind and tidal power. We’d be mad not to be investing in the technologies that will transition us to a clean energy reality! Many of us are moving with the times and more than 1.4 million households now have solar. Queensland and South Australia have the highest concentration of solar in the world! It’s pretty obvious that we still have a long way to go before we can start to challenge the fossil fuel industry in Australia. Invest in WattGrid to save yourself money and save the planet too.
