SunEdison Partners With Eguana to Supply Battery Storage in Net-Zero Energy Home Pilot Project

Net Zero fleet will operate in unison to deliver value to the community and the local utility as directed by EPRI.

Calgary, AB - (September 22, 2015) - SunEdison, the largest global renewable energy development company, has selected Eguana Technologies Inc. (EGT: TSX-V), ("Eguana" or the Company") a leading supplier of power control and conversion solutions to supply Eguana's AC Battery into several residential energy storage projects in North America. Initial shipments and installations for the first project location have already taken place.


"This project with SunEdison and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) aligns perfectly with our market vision," said Brent Harris, CTO of Eguana Technologies. "This is not just a bunch of individual systems that are operated to the benefit of the homeowner. This Net Zero fleet will operate in unison to deliver value to the community and the local utility as directed by EPRI. We are looking forward to helping paint the path forward on residential energy storage, particularly with respect to community and utility interaction with our partners."

National residential solar installers with the capability to finance and operate fleets of home batteries, and who are motivated to keep raising the grid's carrying capacity for rooftop solar growth, are a key target market for Eguana. Under CPUC's Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan, all new homes in California are set to be net-zero from 2020.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
