KOSTAL energy meter named "Top Brand"

KOSTAL was named the "Top Brand" for its energy meters in the major survey conducted by TESTBILD.

In the large TESTBILD survey, more than 8,500 consumers were asked about their experiences with products in the "House & Living" category. The survey, which was conducted by COMPUTER BILD and Statista, allowed participants to choose from 3,400 brands in total.
 

KOSTAL: the TOP BRAND in the "House & Living" category

Several criteria were used to determine the top 5 brands in each of the 99 categories. KOSTAL impressed respondents in the "Digital electricity meters" category, which are characterised in particular by their durability and attractive price-performance ratio.

The two energy meters – the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter and KOSTAL Energy Meter – were named "Top Brands" and received the top score of 99.8 points.

Back in March 2023, KOSTAL Solar Electric received the Prosumer Award from the Bonn-based research institute EUPD for its energy meters. One of the categories rated was Home Energy Management. 
 
"We are proud to have received this award from the numerous system operators and installers who use our energy meters on a daily basis", explains Dennis Hollenbeck, Product Manager at KOSTAL, who is responsible for continuous development of the energy meters.
"This time, we are delighted that we were also able to impress end customers with our performance and that we were selected from so many other well-known brands", adds Hollenbeck.
 

The KOSTAL Energy Meter – the energy meter with all the basic functions

KOSTAL Energy Meters are cost-effective energy meters with numerous functions. They are the ideal choice for operating the PLENTICORE and a battery storage system.

What makes this so great is that, for battery storage, the KOSTAL Energy Meters are ready for use straight away with the PLENTICORE plus hybrid inverter, as KOSTAL Energy Meters are pre-configured as standard. This means a direct connection is possible without any further settings.

Operation is extremely simple, as the central LCD shows the most important information at a glance. All important controls are located on the front for easy access.

 

 

The KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter – for those who want more

The KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter offers all the functions of the KOSTAL Energy Meter and more. If KOSTAL’s ENECTOR wallbox or alternatively a second PLENTICORE is to be connected alongside using a battery storage system in conjunction with a PLENTICORE, the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter is the right choice. 

In addition, all measurement and consumption data can be conveniently viewed in the KOSTAL Solar App or on the KOSTAL Solar Portal – regardless of the energy meter selected.
