Wednesday, Jul 09, 2014

OutBack Power Technologies, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of advanced power electronics for renewable energy, backup power and mobile applications, will showcase its newest Grid/Hybrid solar energy innovations at Intersolar North America, July 8 to 10 in San Francisco. With intelligent technology, including the new GridZero Radian inverters, expanded energy storage options, and OPTICS RE mobile monitoring and control application, OutBack Power has a single-brand system solution for delivering grid independence to owners and installers while ensuring compatibility with future energy storage solutions through advanced battery-charging capabilities. This allows users to master utility and incentive changes, reducing their anxiety over costly solar investments and provides distributors and installers the flexibility to address any energy scenario based upon customer needs.

“Pairing solar and energy storage with smart controls and 24/7 monitoring make OutBack Power’s Grid/Hybrid technology a practical solar investment for people that want to leverage reliability and intelligent energy balancing in an economical system.”

Even as solar pricing becomes more competitive compared with other energy sources, installers and homeowners still have to contend with changes in utility policies and net metering incentives such as those in flux in Hawaii or California utilities. Intelligent devices connected via the Internet of Things have likewise disrupted the residential renewable energy market, empowering homeowners and installers with greater transparency into their energy usage, production and efficiency. The next generation of solar energy systems will be defined by their ability to store renewably-generated electricity for increasing grid independence and providing backup solutions for emergencies.

“The connected smart home is expanding beyond communication between your tablet and your lights or garage door to now include your solar panels or backup power supply,” said Harvey Wilkinson, general manager of OutBack Power. “Pairing solar and energy storage with smart controls and 24/7 monitoring make OutBack Power’s Grid/Hybrid technology a practical solar investment for people that want to leverage reliability and intelligent energy balancing in an economical system.”

OutBack Power’s award-winning Radian family features GridZero technology and Advanced Battery Charging for compatibility with any future or existing utility energy scenario. OutBack is also introducing large-capacity 2V battery and racking systems with modular terminal design as well as top-terminal batteries and outdoor enclosures for value-oriented applications. OutBack’s cloud-based monitoring and control dashboard, OPTICS RE, provides users with the ability to easily monitor PV system operation, performance and output via an intuitive dashboard from any Internet-enabled device. With the ability to monitor and control renewable energy installations, OPTICS RE ensures fewer service calls and improved contact with customers, and saves users money, resulting in greener lifestyles and greater satisfaction with their solar investments.
