Fortress Power, Sol-Ark announce new integrated solar, battery solution

Fortress Power and Sol-Ark

Fortress Power teamed up with Sol-Ark again, releasing an update on their integrated solar storage solution. Consisting of 4 eFlex batteries and a Sol-Ark 12K or 15K inverter, the new all-in-one solution offers peak shaving for demand charge management, load shifting for time-of-use savings, standalone operation in the off-grid mode for power backup, as well as storage of excess solar energy.

“The partnership began in 2018. Since then, we have established closed-loop communication with Fortress batteries for maximum system efficiency and battery lifespan,” said Said Tom Brennan, the CEO of Sol-Ark. “We enjoy working with Fortress Power because they engineer and manufacture safe and high-quality Lithium-Iron batteries that work very well with our powerful inverters.”

This new all-in-one solution is IP65 Water & dustproof for indoor and outdoor installations. Included are active cooling fans for hot climates and an easy-to-add din rail thermostat for cold climates. The built-in busbars and cables help make installations 45min or less. With a built-in 200A grid passthrough, customers can have a whole home backup system without building a separate backup load panel. The system is UL 9540 certified and meets the UL 9540 (A) large fire test standard.

Furthermore, Fortress notes that it allows customers the flexibility to size up inverter and battery capacity based on their needs and budget.

“We have tens of thousands of batteries installed with Sol-Ark inverters across the US, Canada, Central Caribbean, and South America,” adds Jing Yu, the CEO of Fortress Power. “Customers are very happy with the performance of our systems. Together we offer our customers high quality, large capacity, plug and play energy storage solutions.”
