Tabuchi America released new functionalities to its residential system at Intersolar in San Francisco that will help customers optimize their solar investment. We had an in-depth look at the previous iteration of Tabuchi’s solution here.
The new system offers four different modes for every homeowner persona on the block to prioritize their specific needs from their solar-plus-storage system, from reducing costs to ensuring reliable backup power.
The Power Saver: Export Mode helps customers save the maximum amount of money on their energy bills. It’s ideal for customers participating in Net Energy Metering (NEM) and Demand Response (DR) programs.
The Green Pioneer: Economy Power Mode maximizes the homeowner’s use of clean solar power. This mode is ideal for customers who need self-consumption and who that value sustainability.
The Backup Power: Home Backup Mode ensures reliable power supply in all circumstances. This mode safeguards the homeowner during blackouts, storms or anytime electricity is unreliable.
The Peak Protector: Demand Response Mode reduces the impact of residential demand charges during peak demand. This mode is designed for customers in states like Arizona that want to lower their electric bills amid changing solar policies.
“Tabuchi America is committed to helping customers maximize their solar investment,” said Tabuchi Managing Director, Harumi McClure. “Different homeowners want different benefits out of their solar-plus-storage system. Our flexible modes empower homeowners to get precisely what they want even as utility rates and policies change.”
Tabuchi America’s solar-plus-storage and inverter technologies are designed to help U.S. homeowners reduce electricity costs and efficiently manage their energy use. The company’s grid-friendly technologies are also designed to make it easier for utilities to directly manage distributed solar and stabilize distributed assets. The company’s four adjustable modes pairs with the system’s smart inverter for full compatibility with California’s Rule 21, which requires new solar inverters to automatically adjust to fluctuations in power flow to stabilize the grid.
