Sonnenbatterie announced that U.S. versions of its residential products that have earned the reputation of market leader in Europe, will include OutBack brand inverters/chargers. Demos of the new products and applications for channel partners will be available at Intersolar North America.
“OutBack Power’s Radian inverter/charger was a natural choice to integrate into Sonnenbatterie’s eco residential smart storage system,” said Boris von Bormann, CEO of Sonnenbatterie USA. “Working with OutBack, we are confident we can provide American home owners with the peace of mind our European customers have come to expect from Sonnenbatterie — that their home energy storage system will operate reliably in any environment and applications.”
Sonnenbatterie plans to utilize the OutBack Power Radian 8048A (8kW) and 4048A (4kW) Grid/Hybrid inverter/chargers in its eco family of residential smart storage products.
“As a leading brand in the off-grid market and emerging grid-connected energy storage space, OutBack Power’s integration with Sonnenbatterie’s self-contained residential power platforms are a natural extension of our systems philosophy and approach for ensuring owners have reliable power in any location,” said Harvey Wilkinson, general manager of OutBack Power. “We have a shared belief in the importance, utility, and future of residential energy storage, and our joint endeavor will align with market demands for energy independence and reliability without building new plants for peak capacity.”
Sonnenbatterie products are now available in North America exclusively through channel partners called Sonnenbatterie Centers.
Coupled with a solar energy system, Sonnenbatterie systems can supply residential owners with up to 100 percent of their energy needs, in addition to providing backup power for the home and taking advantage of different tariff structures for off-peak vs. on-peak use. For commercial customers, Sonnenbatterie helps reduce demand spikes that lead to peak load charges.
Sonnenbatterie designs and manufactures fully integrated energy storage systems, with US headquarters in Los Angeles, California and corporate headquarters in Bavaria, Germany. The Sonnenbatterie solution integrates battery cells, an inverter and energy management software in one package that allows for extremely fast and inexpensive installation.
