PowerPlay – ask your home about your power use
Most solar systems just generate power. They don’t tell you how much you are using, or where it’s being used.
PowerPlay changes all that. Because the most knowledgeable source of power information in your home is your home itself.
PowerPlay gives you real-time energy monitoring and the ability to control appliances from your phone. This lets you make the most of those times when your solar panels are producing excess power.
PowerPlay doesn’t only record your energy use so you can compare energy use today to yesterday, last week or last year. It sends you messages when it notices something unusual in your energy use and lets you know when you’re saving money.
Unlike regular solar systems, PowerPlay integrates with smart technology, turning your house into a modern, connected solar home.
On sunny days, when your system is generating more energy than you can use, PowerPlay can automatically adjust your air-conditioning for maximum comfort and savings. And that’s just the beginning.
It’s all designed to give you the greatest control over your energy and its costs.
The Flex suite of solar system hardware is the most comprehensive suite of solar products from one brand.
