OutBack Power Showcases Easy-to-Install Solar Equipment during NABCEP

Leading power electronics manufacturer informs installers on energy storage developments for continuing education

ARLINGTON, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OutBack Power Technologies, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of advanced power electronics for solar energy, will participate in an energy storage panel on April 5 at 1:00 p.m. PT and will showcase its prewired system line at the 2016 NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) Continuing Education Conference, leading with the FLEXpower Radian and Nano-Carbon energy storage. With this system, solar installers and designers can save half a day of labor on configuration and installation. Additionally, the equipment is designed with residential energy independence in mind, providing homeowners and installers with reliable platforms that require little maintenance. As a result, contractors benefit from increased cost savings and improved customer satisfaction with user-friendly systems.


Adding solar with energy storage backup has many economic benefits for homeowners all over the country. To address the pent-up demand, installers can take on more projects and streamline their seasons if they have access to equipment that requires little extra training or complicated customer maintenance. OutBack Power is the only company with a UL1741-listed system from the energy storage to the rooftop. OutBack's FLEXpower Radian and EnergyCell Nano-Carbon Batteries were designed with existing and future standards in mind, ensuring return on homeowner investments despite changing policies or technology.

"The energy industry has been buzzing about the rapid growth in storage implementation for several years, and that moment has now arrived," said Eric Hill, senior manager for energy storage products and systems at OutBack Power. "Installers have trusted OutBack for the past 15 years, and we'll share our energy storage expertise to continue the industry's education and empower NABCEP installers to grow and evolve alongside us."
