More than a year ago we were talking about how battery provider, sonnen, was going to be a game changer in the smarthome technology market. Fast forward to 2020 and our view hasn’t changed. In fact, we’re trained, ready and currently working with Adapt Energy by PanTech on one of the first installations of a sonnen home battery in Houston!
So let’s delve a little deeper into how home energy storage and management will change your life (and reduce bills)!
sonnen boasts revolutionary innovation in energy storage that integrates clean energy with home automation and intelligent, safe battery technology. Coupled with solar, it will store energy from sunlight during the day and utilize it in the evening to light and power your home, bringing more efficiency into the day to date operation of your home.
In winter months or when there’s less sunlight, if your energy provider offers dual tariff off peak energy you benefit further, as the system can be programmed to top up during off peak tariff times at a lower ongoing cost to the homeowner.
The battery only stores as much as it needs day to day from the grid or an alternative renewable power source but, utilizing the home technology control of Adapt Energy, it intuitively stores more if a major weather event is on its way. Yes, you read that correctly. It literally receives information that an outage may occur and gets ready for it. Then, when the outage happens it powers the circuits up and down depending on what your priorities are and how long the outage continues for. A far cry from a noisy generator kicking in, which is hard wired to only provide for your AC and your major kitchen appliances! In fact, the battery actually acts as a filter when used in conjunction with your generator, protecting the electronics in your home from the fluctuations in power that the generator can deliver.
So what else do we know? Here are the top line promises from sonnen.
- SAFELY, INTELLIGENTLY, AND EFFORTLESSLY MANAGE ENERGY FOR THE MODERN SMART HOME, DAY AND NIGHT
- KEEP HOMEOWNERS POWERED AND PROTECTED DURING GRID OUTAGES, CLOUDY DAYS, PEAK PERIODS, AND BEYOND
- LONGEST-LASTING 15 YEAR / 15,000 CYCLE WARRANTY
We are so excited to be working on one of the first battery powered home projects in Houston and look forward to reporting more on the future of home batteries soon.
