Solarspot and Eguana Partner to Deliver Home Batteries in South Australia
CALGARY, Alberta and ADELAIDE, South Australia, Dec. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Eguana Technologies (TSX.V:EGT) (OTCQB:EGTYF) and Solarspot Pty Ltd are pleased to announce that the Evolve Home Energy Storage System is immediately available to home owners in South Australia under the Marshall government’s Home Battery Scheme.
The Evolve is Virtual Power Plant (“VPP”) ready, allowing the homeowner to choose to participate in any current or future VPP offering, or to reserve the system for their own use to maximize their solar investment. Evolve comes standardised with seamless back up power capability for an indoor or outdoor installation and will keep your solar system operating to ensure power is available to support essential loads for extended periods.
“Solarspot is an ideal partner for us,” said Brent Harris, CTO of Eguana. “Our plans in South Australia’s leading-edge energy storage market go well beyond simple manufacturing assembly and it is important to integrate well with the established industry leaders through collaborative partnerships. Jason, David and their team understand the local consumer needs and the importance of delivering a product solution that is manufactured right here in South Australia.”
“The Eguana Evolve system allows us to offer a fully-integrated, LG Chem battery-based, AC-coupled solution to our customers,” said Jason Hicks, Director of Solarspot. “There has been a lot of buzz around the Home Battery Scheme and we are excited to finally have access to a product that’s VPP agnostic, available in suitable power ratings, and has backup power capability as a standard feature, which is understandably a base expectation of most solar battery customers.”
“Virtual power plants will define grid 2.0 and the Evolve comes standardized with a full suite of grid capable functions including integrated software controls that have been developed in Australia for the Australian market,” added Eguana CEO Justin Holland. “The Evolve does not constrain homeowners with choice of retailer, can be installed in or outdoors, and its modular approach provides for battery capacity increases from 13kWh to 39 kWh, without the need to invest in further power controls. We are looking forward to working with Jason, David and the Solarspot team to bring the Evolve to families in South Australia.”
Solarspot is now a registered and certified System Provider for the Eguana Evolve under the Home Battery Scheme.
