Enteligent unveils rapid shutdown device and solar-powered EV charger


Enteligent is featuring both its new Enteligent NMax Rapid Shutdown Device (RSD) with Optimization and their SolarFirst EV Quick Charger at the Solar & Storage Southeast Expo in Atlanta this week and the Minnesota SEIA Gateway to Solar Conference in Minneapolis on October 18 and 19. The Enteligent NMax Rapid Shutdown Device with Optimization is currently available, and the SolarFirst is expected to ship in mid-2022.

RSD units: Microprocessor controlled, the Enteligent NMax RSD delivers the highest possible amount of electricity from the solar panel to the inverter, shade or no shade. Installers can now get the most solar panel output for their customers without sacrificing cost, and installation is simple with plug and play SunSpec™ RSD Certification.

SolarFirst: The EV charger allows at-home, at-work and at-store charging powered directly by existing solar panels, and can also be powered simultaneously by the AC grid to provide peace-of-mind charge-continuity. The Enteligent SolarFirst EV charger is up to three times faster than AC Level 2 EV chargers and delivers at a fraction of the cost of dedicated DC chargers.

“We’ve received tremendous interest in our RSD offering – the Enteligent NMax panel-level power optimization module, and we want to show people what we have lined up next,” said Sean Burke, CEO of Enteligent. “Interest in electric vehicles to reduce carbon exhaust emissions continues to gain momentum, as evidenced by Ford’s and GM’s recent announcements and President Biden’s initiatives – but the practical questions of how we are going to cleanly charge these vehicles remain. A typical EV requires about 4,000 Kilowatts of electricity per year. When this electricity is generated by traditional powerplants, that equates to over 3,000 pounds of CO2 for each vehicle annually. The green answer is to generate electricity for EVs directly from solar and to have these chargers conveniently available wherever cars are parked during the day.”

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.
