Sydney, NSW – November 30th, 2020 – Schneider Electric Solar has announced a home backup solution for Australia that is compliant with the Clean Energy Council (CEC) safety standards. The new solution provides you with a steady & reliable source of sustainable energy while reducing your carbon footprint by up to 90% from fossil fuel-based electricity. The XW Pro delivers the ultimate protection for your home’s power supply, so you’ll never have to face another blackout when the grid goes out.

An over-reliance on fossil fuels has now made climate change a reality. Governments and people worldwide are doing their part to adopt more sustainable ways of living to reduce carbon emissions. A combination of natural geographic advantages and favourable policymaking has supported fuel growth in the Australian solar market, with about one in four Australian homes now having rooftop solar.

Schneider Electric’s latest offering can now fulfill this demand for a more eco-friendly & sustainable lifestyle. The XW Pro solar hybrid inverter is the heart of your home power system, connecting solar and battery storage with the grid for backup power and energy security. It can be used for solar and storage or backup power systems without solar.

Electricity demand in individual homes is not consistent throughout the day, and with a high power-rating and surge capability, the XW Pro is scalable and adaptable to your home’s unique power supply needs. It also offers flexible battery compatibility and flexible energy capacity per inverter so that you can plan according to your energy consumption needs and budget.

“The availability of the XW Pro for the on-grid market in Australia will help provide a better solution to ensure reliable & sustainable backup power for your homes. The XW Pro integrates seamlessly with existing diesel gen-sets or string-inverter systems and provides improved backup power solutions for the entire home”, says Bernhard Kiechl, VP of Marketing, Research & Development, Schneider Electric Solar. “The XW Pro comes with a complete ecosystem of accessories and digital tools to help you customize a solution that perfectly fits your home’s unique requirements.”
