PIKO MP plus as a hybrid inverter: Generate and store solar power
To store solar energy, a battery can be added to the PIKO MP plus at any time. All you need is the activation code for the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter.
If there is a surplus of solar energy, it is temporarily stored in the battery for subsequent self-consumption. For this purpose, the inverter communicates with the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter, which controls the charging and discharging functions of the battery. Only when the battery is fully charged is surplus solar power fed into the grid.
This means that you can maximize home consumption of your own self-generated solar power, regardless of the time of day.
Depending on the power class, the PIKO MP plus as a hybrid inverter has two connections, one of which can be used as a PV input and the second as a battery input.
