What makes your booth a must visit for RE+ Attendees?
With our new EVERVOLT solar + storage systems, Panasonic Authorized Installers can differentiate themselves in their local market and position themselves as true residential energy experts. We are excited to show solar installers how they can grow their business by helping homeowners go solar with one of America’s most trusted brands. When they visit our booth, we will talk about how we can help them achieve success.
When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see? Any educational sessions, pavilions etc. you plan on attending?
I am most excited to attend the sessions on future of energy storage systems and grid interconnection specifically “Batteries 2.0: The Next Generation” and “To DERMS or Not To DERMS”. RE+ will be a great platform to learn about the changes in electrical codes through the session on “2023 NEC® Changes Affecting PV and Energy Storage System”.
Alternative Energy is undertaking rapid advancements, be it Solar Power, Energy Storage, or Smart Grid. Data and Automation is a huge part for many companies, give us an idea on how your company and product is utilizing advancements in data and automation.
One of the key benefits for homeowners installing our battery system is that they can have automated load management capabilities. Customers are able to set conditions to power the loads on and off based on priorities and system state of charge.
Give us your thoughts on what the future holds for the Alternative Energy Industry.
With enhancements in the battery technologies, I am hoping for a future where more customers have access to installing home battery systems by becoming more optimized for different spaces and cost efficient. Battery technologies are going to become essential for ensuring power stability with the aging grids.
