Sunnova Energy International added FranklinWH Energy Storage to its approved vendor list earlier this year. The two are now teaming up to launch a 120/208V compliant battery for multi-family homes that will be offered exclusively by Sunnova New Homes.
“Each 208-volt battery has 13.6 kWh of storage capacity, perfect for multi-family communities,” said Dirk Korte, VP of National Homebuilder Sales at Sunnova.
In multi-family construction, providing sufficient power to each unit is critical. The FranklinWH 120/208V battery is out-of-the-box compliant with 208 voltage single-phase applications, fulfills California’s JA12 requirements, and is fully protected by Sunnova’s 25-year service coverage.
The 208V aPower battery offers a 13.6 kWh capacity and four aPowers may be linked in parallel for a total of 54.5 kWh per aGate intelligent power management controller. Multiple aGates may be used to provide control for individual units and blocks of units for focused storage and power supply that provide security and stability for each household.
“Together, we’re dedicated to integrating the 208V solution into both new multi-family constructions and existing home markets, ensuring residents have access to the most advanced and efficient energy solutions available,” said Ke Bi, COO, FranklinWH.
FranklinWH solutions enhance energy management for homeowners by intelligently integrating multiple energy sources – solar, battery, generator and grid power – to optimize the safety, reliability and efficiency of home energy.
The companies will provide whole-home solutions to developers of new homes, bringing safe, reliable, and affordable state-of-the-art solar technology and energy storage to new homes and communities.
