Renowned solar integrator, Hannah Solar has recently announced collaboration with smart power control technology provider, Eguana Technologies to bring commercial and residential energy storage systems to home and business owners in Georgia and other select U.S. markets.
According to Joseph Waybright, VP of Sales, Hannah Solar, consumers demand cost-effective, intelligent systems that can be easily integrated with new or existing solar PV arrays. He claims that the company’s early efforts have already offered residential sales as homeowners have been looking to power crucial loads for an extended time period. Waybright said that the Evolve system would allow customers to easily enhance their storage capacity from 13 kWh to 26kWh to 39 kWh at a very competitive price point.
Livio Filice, Director of Residential Sales, North America, Eguana, was quoted saying that the company is confident that its AC-coupled, outdoor-rated energy storage systems will offer Hannah added solar PV business while assisting business and homeowners to prepare for power outages, while reducing energy costs and becoming more energy independent.
He said that the first residential installations are planned near the Georgia-Alabama border, with added installations planned throughout the first quarter of 2019. Hannah wants to ensure availability of residential storage systems throughout 2019 and has placed opening orders of around 500 kWh, he added.
Sources cite that Hannah Solar is expected to complete installations of its first group of Evolve energy storage systems in late January 2019 and installations are expected to continue throughout the year. The companies plan to offer the Elevate energy storage system to businesses that are currently looking forward to reducing power charges in Georgia and other markets, cite sources.
