I am on a SWER line I've been told I need an export limiter. Is that necessary?

    Hi Finn, Im on a SWER line in country SA, can you confirm/explain a couple things for me please -

    If I get my SEG approved for a 6.5kw system with approved export limiting inverter, (Solaredge SE5000H) I cannot export anything at all to grid or can I export at a limited/throttled amount?

    If I stay under 5000w of panels I can export to grid?

    If I stay under 5000w, and add batteries in two/three years time is there a way to add an extra 2.5kw of panels (feeding the existing Solaredge SE5000H) to help charge batteries and still be able to export any left over? If so, can I claim STC for these extra panels (assuming STC still exist then)?

    Many Thanks Finn.

    It depends what export limit (in kW) has been approved.

    This article shows how export limiters work:
