Panasonic has announced a new residential energy storage system, EverVolt.
EverVolt, which features a modular design, is available in AC- and DC-coupled versions. The home energy storage system enhances Panasonic’s suite of home energy solutions, including its photovoltaic HIT portfolio.
The Panasonic-engineered storage system is compatible with any solar system or inverter and can be tailored to a homeowner’s individual needs, the company says. The system can be scaled down to as little as 5.7 kWh of energy storage or expanded to 34.2 kWh.
EverVolt, which offers a one-person installation, is field-serviceable and comes with a user-friendly app for homeowners. The product is also backed by a 10-year product and performance warranty.
“Energy storage is one of the fastest-growing segments in the renewable energy space, and homeowners are eager to find a product that fits their exact needs,” says Mukesh Sethi, group manager at Panasonic Solar. “With EverVolt, homeowners will be one step closer to grid independence and see a quicker return on their solar investment. EverVolt users will have the ability to store unused power to use when they need it most or sell surplus energy back to their local utility and generate income.”
In addition to the new energy storage system, the company has announced other solar portfolio-related news:
- The new all-black 335 HIT series of modules has surpassed the 20% efficiency barrier.
- Panasonic has updated its N330E/N325E Black Series AC modules, combining the efficiency of HIT solar panels with the intelligence of seventh-generation Enphase IQ 7X Microinverters. The newly released series delivers a smart grid-ready module with high efficiency and high power output for residential solar systems.
- Panasonic has announced a new 340N HIT module, designed to allow installers the ability to support projects with a higher voltage. Using HIT technology, featuring high-efficiency n-type crystalline combined with amorphous layers, the 340N HIT modules provide better performance in heat and low-light conditions. The new 340N HIT module has a smaller footprint than competing products and provides maximum energy yield and flexibility in constrained rooftop spaces.
