Challenges faced by households

Group 42176.png__PID:6712f0fb-2aa9-4aa8-88af-8d8ff1261a1b

Energy costs are increasing and tariffs are changing

The cost of energy is increasing, energy tariffs are opaque, complex or hard to understand and reducing energy use is hard work.

Group 42175.png__PID:446712f0-fb2a-495a-a888-af8d8ff1261a

Little visibility and control over their energy use

It's hard to know how much energy is being used and by what, and tracking energy spend between bills is difficult.

Make the most of your solar investment with LinkZB.

Both the LinkZB and Linkpro are Home Energy Management Gateways for exports control. The LinkZB is the original Voltello product with the LinkPro on pre-order for early 2024, including an Ethernet interface with Zigbee interface coming soon. Both integrate with inverters, batteries and consumption meters.

Control Your Solar Exports!

In Australia, with 1 in 3 homes having rooftop solar, feed-in tariffs (FiTs) are declining, sometimes even turning negative, meaning solar owners are charged for exporting their solar. Many households lack inverter control for solar exports, leading to the need for expensive retrofits that require professional installations or coding skills, making the management of rooftop solar systems challenging.

How Does a Smart Inverter Management Device help?

A smart inverter management device helps you automate your solar exports to avoid negative FiTs. In other words, if you are paying to export to the grid, this device eliminates that problem by syncing with your Amber buy and sell prices to prevent unnecessary expenses while exporting solar during times when the buy and sell prices are not favorable.

The LinkZB (and the upcoming LinkPro) do exactly that for you!
