The Fronius Tesla Powerwall Home Battery Ready Inverter

Introducing the Fronius Symo Hybrid Three Phase hybrid solar inverter. The inverter is already available and widely installed across Australia. Though the software that enables the inverter to interact (charge and discharge) with the Tesla Powerwall is due out in November 2016, if you are wanting to get a Battery Ready Solar System, now is a perfect time to get setup with a fantastic inverter from a hugely reputable brand (Fronius).

Preliminary Data / More detailed information about the Tesla Powerwall will follow shortly.

/ “24H sun” is the Fronius vision of how energy will be supplied in the coming decades. The Fronius Symo Hybrid and Tesla Powerwall are the new joint storage solution for 24H Sun. Boasting power categories ranging from 3.0 to 5.0 kW, the three-phase inverter allows excess energy from a photovoltaic system to be stored in a battery. The result: maximum self-consumption of the available power and maximum energy independence. Excess solar power can thus be used at times when generating conditions are poor or impossible. With the emergency power function, the household can enjoy an optimum electricity supply even during power outages (Retrofitting of the emergency power function is possible from mid 2016, using a software update). Perfect system configuration and visualisation are provided by the built-in web server with graphical interface, WLAN and Ethernet. In addition, the DC coupling on the battery guarantees maximum efficiency of the overall system.


/ The Fronius Symo Hybrid is the heart of the storage solution for 24H Sun.
From a simple inverter one minute, the battery and emergency power function can be added in no time.
The result: sun by day, sun by night and sun during power outages.

1) Testing to IEC 62109-1. 2) And at Umpp min / Udc,r / Umpp max
Further information regarding the availability of the inverters in your country can be found at



/ The Fronius Smart Meter is a bidirectional meter which optimises self-consumption and records
the household’s load curve. In conjunction with the Fronius Solar.web online portal, the
Fronius Smart Meter provides a clear overview of a user’s own power consumption.

1) Delivered without current sensors, secondary current 1 A and 5 A. The Fronius Smart Meter 50kA-3 is available by the end of 2015.

Retrofitting of the emergency power function is possible from mid 2016, using a software update.


/ What G├╝nter Fronius started in 1945 in Pettenbach, Austria, has now become a modern day success story.

For the intralogistics sector, we are committed to energy flow optimisation for electric forklift trucks and are constantly striving for the next innovation. Our powerful charging systems for vehicle workshops guarantee safe and reliable processes.


These costs are based on the SA Power network in Adelaide but prices may vary depending on your circumstances. This comparison assumes a general energy usage of 4000kWh/year for a residential customer on Energy Locals Time of Use Tariff – (TOU – Peak, Off-Peak & Solar Sponge).

The reference price is set by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) for a financial year in relation to electricity supply to residential customers in the distribution region and is based on an assumed annual usage amount. Any difference between the reference price and the unconditional price of a plan is expressed as a percentage more or less than the reference price. The terms of any conditional discounts are shown, along with any further difference between the reference price and the discount applied if a condition is met, expressed as a percentage more or less than the reference price.
