Schneider Electric launched two new solar products to coincide with the Alliance for Rural Electricity’s (ARE) Energy Access Investment Forum 2022 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. One is a solar lantern, an update to its Mobiya Original lantern. The other, more relevant for solar installers, is the Homaya Pro solar-hybrid inverter.
Both of Schneider’s new products are now commercially available worldwide.
Homaya Pro is aimed at powering powers off-grid communities but can be grid-connected as well. It can power the energy needs of a household or a small business, with solutions ranging from 3, 4 or 6 kilowatts. It provides reliable renewable energy access for homes, fuel stations, small offices, healthcare centers, schools and telecommunications infrastructure.
The Homaya Pro inverter is powered by solar energy with an inbuilt Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) controller. It is compatible with grid charging and supports lead or lithium battery technologies. Up to 6 inverters can be connected in parallel for a combined output of up to 24 kW.
Optional accessories include external MPPT to extend a solar array by one or three kilowatts and increase backup capacity, and a WiFi dongle to allow local internet monitoring without a mobile app.
