U.S. based global solar energy provider Sungevity announced last month a new partnership with German company Sonnenbatterie, Europe’s leading smart energy storage provider. Through the partnership, Sungevity will offer Sonnenbatterie smart energy storage systems to its network of customers in the U.S. and Europe, starting in the second half of 2015.
Sonnenbatterie chose to partner with Sungevity due to the solar provider’s unparalleled customer experience and proprietary remote solar design technology. Customers who participate in the program will consume more of their own solar energy, enjoy reduced costs and have access to backup power during outages.
Peter Graf, Chief Product Officer, Sungevity said:
“Customers look to Sungevity for more than just solar; they look to us for the best energy experience that points towards the future. And as part of our ongoing commitment to delivering the highest level of customer satisfaction, we’re focused on providing our customers with the most proven and scalable energy storage solution available. As the global leader in home energy systems, Sonnenbatterie delivers a compelling extension of our solar energy system for new and existing customers alike.”
Boris Von Bormann, CEO of Sonnenbatterie USA said:
“Sungevity and Sonnenbatterie together will bring smart and beautiful energy storage systems to homeowners across the U.S. and Europe. We chose to work with Sungevity on this project because, like Sonnenbatterie, they have earned a reputation for delivering an unparalleled customer experience based on the highest quality solutions that feature the latest in solar and energy technology.”
Sonnenbatterie smart energy storage system
The Sonnenbatterie (Solarbattery) is designed to utilize as much privately-generated electricity as possible and to minimise reliance on energy providers. This includes the direct consumption of the solar power generated during the day as well as the storage and precise provision of electricity when it is required at a later point in time.
Sonnenbatterie’s highly sophisticated storage systems incorporate Sony’s Fortelion lithium ion cells with an industry-leading 10,000 charge cycles.
By installing the storage system, customers will be able to bank any excess energy generated by their solar panels and store it for future use, such as at night, during peak pricing hours or when there is a power outage.
Sonnenbatterie’s residential solutions are known for their reliability, beautiful design, and ease of use. Sonnenbatterie also provides commercial solutions for small businesses, hotels and other uses.
