HomeGrid earns UL 9540 certification with Sol-Ark 12K inverter
Lithion through its HomeGrid product has completed testing and achieved UL 9540 certification for its Stack’d Series (9.6kWh to 38.4kWh) energy storage solution combined with the Sol-Ark 12k inverter. The HomeGrid Stack’d series uses Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries.
UL 9540 is a safety standard for an energy storage system (ESS) and equipment intended for connection to a local utility grid or standalone application. It covers several elements, but is primarily a certification of safety against thermal runaway. The UL9540 safety certification allows HomeGrid to expand its offering to more customers across North America.
Stewart Graham, EVP of Lithion say the Sol-Ark 12K hybrid inverters has “a number of distinct advantages and growing market share in the Energy Storage System arena.” Sol-Ark will also be unlocking a real contender in the ‘whole home back-up’ competition with their soon-to-be-released 15K inverter and smart load panel — both of which offer future collaboration opportunities between the companies.
HomeGrid products offer a high capacity and a modular design. The battery is comprised of Tier 1 prismatic cells guaranteed by a 10-year, 4000 cycle, non-pro-rated warranty. The cobalt free, low voltage system can be installed within an hour and provides a quality standard unlike its competitors.
“The modularity of the HomeGrid Stack’d series battery provides a Lego-like form factor allowing it to match Sol-Ark’s ease of install and all-in-one solar solution. The Stack’d Series battery has an output that can utilize the full capability of our inverters. With our upcoming Sol-Ark 15K, the Stack’d Series battery will be the only battery on the market to maximize its capability,” expresses Bhawna Oberoi, COO of Sol-Ark.
