Lyra makes designing and permitting solar projects with home energy systems simple, fast, and accurate. By using Lyra to design your whole system, you get an accurate permit package automatically generated with all the required ESS information.

Currently, Lyra supports the Enphase IQ™ Battery 3 and 10 all-in-one AC storage systems. Over the course of this year we will be adding more storage options and manufacturers to this list. If there is a preferred option that you would like to see before then, please let us know by contacting our sales team.

How to add Enphase IQ™ Storage equipment to a design

In Lyra, the Enphase IQ™ Battery all-in-one AC storage system can be added to designs during the Electrical Design step of the System Design. More specifically, they are added after a compatible Enphase IQ microinverter is selected and before stringing modules.

After selecting an Enphase inverter you will be presented with the option to specify energy storage and backup. Lyra currently supports two configurations:

  • Solar self-consumption

  • Partial home backup

After selecting a configuration, you will then need to select which storage solution you're using from the following options.

After selecting a backup configuration and storage solution, continue with your design and the ESS configuration will be reflected on the permit package. You can see and edit the energy storage component in the Properties Panel of the Electrical Design.

After Generating Locations during the Electrical BOS step, the app will automatically add a pin for the ESS equipment. You should review the location on the canvas and be sure to specify whether it is Indoor or Outdoor in the Equipment pop-out menu, shown below. You can also move the pin on the canvas if need be.
