Eguana Technologies and Creative Solar USA have launched the Evolve - Home Energy Storage System in Georgia for residential customers.
The Evolve system allows new or existing residential solar customers to store excess solar power generation for use in the evening, maximizing their solar investment. In the event of a power outage, the system will keep the solar system operating, ensuring that power is available to support essential loads.
Creative Solar CEO Russell Seifert said: “The Evolve system allows us to offer a fully-integrated, LG Chem battery-based, AC-coupled solution to our customers. With an attractive price point we expect the Evolve to pick up immediate traction in the South East.”
Eguana CEO Justin Holland said: “Creative Solar is an established solar firm who was recently awarded the contract to install Solarize Atlanta and Solarize Carrolton customers, a validation of their leadership position in their regional market.
“We are excited about our new partnership and look forward to bringing our solutions to additional US and Caribbean markets in the near future.”
Creative Solar is scheduled to become an Eguana certified installer in July, initial product orders have been placed and initial installations will commence immediately. Evolve energy storage systems will continue to be deployed throughout the balance of this year.
1 in 4 of Creative Solar’s customers are already requesting storage as part of their solar installations due to low solar export rates in Georgia and a desire for solar-driven backup power.
