Frequently asked questions

WATT3 functions as an online platform coupled with our edge of the cloud technology WATT3 SmartBox. If your question is not listed here, please contact us and let us help you.

How does the system work?


WATT3’s SmartBox collects data on your consumption and solar production. Our software sends commands (charge/discharge) to the battery based on forecast generation, consumption of energy and price. This results in higher profitability of the system through optimal autoconsumption, price arbitrage and additional revenue coming from battery capacity sharing (i.e. ancillary services).

I am a regular household. Can I use your products?

Yes, of course. Our systems are tailored for complex environments yet work perfectly well in non commercial situations, saving you money and increasing your auto-consumption.

Can I be off-grid?

Yes, you receive these benefits through our smart algorithms:
-Maximize your self-consumption of solar power.
-Increase the resiliency of your electricity.
-Minimal fossil fuel usage.

Can you help me to get a subsidy?

Where subsidies are available WATT3 with our partners will ensure that you have access to and receive all that your entitled too.

Do I need to have a battery to use your product?

No, WATT3 will find you the best Battery for your needs. If you do have a battery we can still make an assessment of your existing battery and likely improve and monitor its performance.

How much does it cost?

The hardware costs are minimal, CHF200-400 in most cases. Electrical installation costs will be made by the installer. We aim to provide acceptable Return on Investments, for all our clients. Either sharing a percentage of the benefits with you or a fixed fee we are keen to find you the right package.

May I test your product for free?

WATT3 ‘Lite’ service offers you the possibility to simulate battery savings and tailor the system to your needs. This service cost a small subscription fee per month. We offer this service for free if you upgrade to the full ‘Opti’ or ‘Max’.

Where may I install a battery?

Batteries do not perform well with sudden changes in ambient temperature, so they
must be appropriately housed with adequate airflow.
Ensure your batteries are not accessible to children, are vermin proofed and are separate to the living or main working areas of the site. Do not store items on top of or lean items against your batteries or enclosures, because they could be a potential electrical fire risk.
