This AC coupled battery storage system from SoFar solar offers tremendous value. As this is an AC coupled kit it is suitable for any existing or new PV array, even those with dual tracker inverters, microinverters or power optimisers.

Monitoring is built in as standard and can be viewed via their android app. Charging from the grid is also possible meaning that customers on Economy 7 or similar can take advantage of this and store electricity overnight for use in the morning, before the PV has fired up.

    Initial commissioning process:

    • Turn everything off (inc. PV)
    • Turn the battery / batteries on (until they flash run)
    • Turn AC power on to the Sofar unit
      • Wait 2 min
    • Turn PV on


    Maximum 8 x Pylon batteries can be connected.

    Sofar Solar Battery Storage systems are simple to install and highly flexible. Commonly referred to as AC battery storage system as this system is installed on the 'AC' side of any installation. The ME3000SP is an AC coupled battery storage solution which connects directly to the customer's consumer unit. This is the reason it is compatible with almost any type of inverter or micro-inverter or optimiser system.

    You can start with just a single Pylon Battery, and add more pylon batteries up to a total of 8 pylon battery units to one SoFar ME3000SP unit.


    This is a single phase system. The system can be used for 3 phase battery storage, but only by treating each phase as a single phase installation. In this way it is possible to have a 3 phase battery storage solution using the SoFar ME3000sp system, however it must be understood that each phase is treated separately, and the ME3000SP unit is still limited to its maximum charge and discharge rate of 3kw.


    A basic system consists of the SoFar ME3000SP controller and just one Pylon battery unit which is 2.4kwh. Each time an additional Pylon battery is added, you are adding 2.4kwh of capacity.


    The So Far battery systems are supplied with the necessary cables for connecting the batteries together the short cable sets and one set of long cables for connecting the battery bank to the SoFar ME3000SP.


    AC Charging and AC discharging programming

    The SoFar battery storage system can charge the Pylon Batteries from the AC power of the property. As this is an AC coupled battery storage system, the unit can be programmed to fill the batteries up to a determined percentage for any period during the 24 hr cycle. Indeed it is possible to programme when the batteries Discharge also should you wish to prioritise certain times. Contact us for information on programming these features.

    Easy to use

    The product was straight forward to install and set up. Great that you can also set it to charge using economy 7 as well so even in the winter you can save on electricity costs.
