LOS ANGELES--Sonnenbatterie, the leading European manufacturer of next generation smart residential and commercial energy storage solutions, today announced its arrival in the US energy market with a new distribution partner to serve the Southern California market.

The company enters the US market today with the opening its first Sonnenbatterie Center in Los Angeles, CA operated by the solar installer and distributor SK Solar USA. The first Sonnenbatterie units to arrive in North America are currently being installed and tested at various locations throughout Southern California. Sales operations will begin later this year.
