This year will go down in history as a turning point for many of us. As we start the new decade, we are faced with a global pandemic in addition to tackling the very real threat of climate change. Despite these challenges, or perhaps because of them, we have seen more storage solutions available in the market and the demand higher than ever before. Soligent is well positioned for what lies ahead.
Right now, Soligent delivers more storage offerings than ever before. While Outback and Schneider have been staples of the storage category for years, Enphase quickly transformed themselves from a leader in the microinverter space to a leader in energy storage. The flexible Encharge battery and Enpower smart switch make it easy to add storage to any IQ system and now any M-series system.
Sonnen launched the sonnenCore solution to complement its eco and ecoLinx products. The Core product provides back-up power to existing solar installations at one of the most competitive prices we have ever seen.
For a solution that does it all, the Sol-Ark inverter paired with SimpliPhi’s AmpliPHI battery boasts best-in-class communications to enable optimal performance. As an outdoor-rated solution with generator integration capabilities, Sol-Ark + AmpliPHI hits all of the marks.
Also released this year was the Energy Hub plus Backup Interface from SolarEdge. SolarEdge has been a leader in DC optimized solar inverters, and the new storage solution enables up to (3) inverters with 60 kWh of storage for a single home. The scalability is remarkable!
Generac Clean Energy launched the Auto-Transfer Switch and Smart Management Modules for the PWRCell’s solar plus storage solution to provide flexibility to homeowners who want whole-home backup on a single inverter system. The outdoor rated battery modules from Generac will be available in Spring 2021.
With so many solar plus storage options available now, and with more on the horizon, an energy storage unit in a home will become as ubiquitous as solar panels on a roof.
