The Regalgrid® cloud-based software integrated into Snocu – the hardware component connected to the inverter and/or to the battery – operates in real-time, processing the data transmitted by the photovoltaic system and allocates the energy generated to the loads in the building. The energy distribution logic can be automatic or set by the prosumer based on specific consumption needs.
Snocu communicates with the local devices – photovoltaic system, storage systems, household loads – with different protocols (Wireless, Bluetooth, LAN, serial). Using the Internet to connect to the cloud server, it collects and processes data and sends automatic and/or manual commands to the connected devices.
Through its integrated functionalities, SNOCU manages the storage inverters so as to reduce their consumption when they are active without actually supplying the user’s inverters. Snocu’s interactive features allow prosumers to efficiently program how and when to use the energy generated and stored in their system.
Regalgrid® monitoring provides an overview of the system and enables the end user to be aware of the real-time situation regarding the use of self-generated energy and self-sufficiency. Indeed, the Portal and Regalgrid® APPs enable real-time monitoring of the system’s status.
The Auto Sleep Mode function automatically disconnects inverters and/or batteries when not needed leading to saving of 20 to 40 Euros/year*.
The Power Booster is a programmable function to provide extra power above the limit established by the mains network contract, leading to savings of 40 to 100 Euros/year**.
The Regalgrid® Platform also optimizes the automatic maintenance strategies of the storage system extending its useful life.
End users can manage their own system remotely as well as to subscribe to special energy promotions.
*Estimate for the Auto Sleep Mode active for 60 – 90 nights/year
** Considering annual savings of €25/kW.
