U.S. battery and energy systems manufacturer SimpliPhi Power has partnered with Lumin, makers of an energy management platform, to introduce an integrated solution. The partnership enables new responsive functionality and a better experience for installers looking for real-time analytics and dynamic controls for energy storage systems in homes and businesses.
The partnership officially launches an app for SimpliPhi customers that goes beyond monitoring on-site generation and consumption to provide circuit-level insights into a building’s energy usage and performance. Customers can utilize their energy storage system to save money each month by avoiding time-of-use rates and demand charges, or dip into advanced controls when whole-home backup power is needed. The Lumin system manages a building’s loads at a granular level to ensure reliable power when the grid is not available.
“The ability to address the current climate challenges depends on the mass adoption of distributed energy,” said Alex Bazhinov, Founder & CEO of Lumin. “We are thrilled to work with SimpliPhi on delivering additional value to homeowners and making solar+storage systems more affordable and capable by integrating battery and load management in one intuitive, easy-to-use application.”
“SimpliPhi is always exploring new ways to empower our customers to take control of their energy decisions and own their power,” said Catherine Von Burg, CEO & President of SimpliPhi Power. “By fully integrating Lumin’s state-of-the-art hardware and digital interface with our range of scalable energy storage solutions, we can give homeowners and businesses new levels of control, a better understanding of their energy usage, and the ability to dynamically control energy consumption to manage or even eliminate their monthly utility bill.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
