Portsmouth City Council has installed two solar, battery storage and electric vehicle (EV) charging systems at housing depots in the city. The solar – installed at the housing depot in Port Royal Street and at Paulsgrove Housing Office – is to generate the electricity required to charge EVs. SolarEdge is to optimise the solar, bypassing shaded and poorly performing panels to ensure the system is operating to its optimum level. Each individual panel can be monitored by the council’s energy services team using the SolarEdge platform in case one breaks or underperforms.
