SPAN Smart Panels
With the addition of a SPAN smart panel, you can control and monitor every electrical circuit in your home from a smartphone or tablet – even when you aren’t home! The SPAN Smart Panel app allows you to understand how your home is sourcing, storing, and using energy in real-time.
The addition of SPAN panels can also extend your battery storage ability up to 40% more! This is especially valuable in areas where blackouts are a common risk.
Before we dive into how a SPAN panel works, first, we need to talk about how the utility grid handles electricity usage.
Recently, there has been a shift to fully electrifying homes, which can cause a rise in homeowners’ overall electrical loads. An electrical load is essentially anything in your home that consumes electricity. This is typically your home appliances such as laundry machines, dishwashers, EV chargers, etc. If you were to try to run all of these at once, you may run the risk of overloading your utility meter that is connected to the grid. This is where the SPAN smart panel comes in.
A SPAN smart panel does what is called ‘load management‘ which takes into account what appliances in the home are priority or non-essential (which you as the homeowner set). This allows you to take control of what home appliances mean the most to you. The SPAN panel accomplishes this load management through ‘load-shedding‘ which will automatically turn off your non-essential appliances in order to run your essential appliances if you are nearing overloading your utility meter.
Yes Solar Solutions recognized the value in these unique smart SPAN panels’ capabilities and became an early certified installer of the SPAN smart panels.
