OutBack Power Presents Energy-Storage Backed Systems during International Builders Show

Pre-wired renewable energy equipment empowers contractors, designers, architects with standards compliance, energy independence for homeowners

ARLINGTON, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OutBack Power Technologies, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of advanced power electronics for solar energy, will showcase its pre-wired system line at the 2016 International Builders' Show, leading with the FLEXpower Radian and Nano-Carbon energy storage. With this system, any builder or installer offering solar has the option to provide a luxury upgrade and enable homeowners to use their solar electricity 24/7 instead of only when the sun is shining, since they can store solar-generated electricity to use at night or during outages and emergencies. With these pre-wired, UL-1741-listed systems, installers can cut up to half a day in configuration and installation time and more quickly and efficiently deliver projects fully compliant with residential electrical standards. The result is increased cost savings for builders and improved customer satisfaction with a more intelligent and useful solar electric system, based on low-maintenance, user-friendly equipment.

To handle increased residential demand for renewable energy systems, contractors look for platforms that don't require extra training to implement or complicated customer maintenance, which streamlines their planning as they expand their client rosters. Builders can quickly complete high-quality installations that are up to code with OutBack Power, the only company with a UL1741-listed system from the batteries to the rooftop. The FLEXware Integrated Combiner Solution (ICS) Plus meets National Electrical Code requirements for rapid shutdown and arc-fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) protection. OutBack's FLEXpower Radian, FLEXware ICS Plus 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 high demand for grid independence with renewable energy presents builders and designers with enormous opportunity to upgrade homes with 24/7 solar through energy storage," said Mark Cerasuolo, director of marketing and training at OutBack Power. "With OutBack's FLEXpower Radian and its other industry-rated equipment, contractors can quickly and confidently install fully compliant platforms, assuring homeowners' systems meet or exceed the highest standards. Homeowners can look forward to selling their surplus electricity back to the grid, offsetting their electrical usage, or—if there is enough solar available—even going off-the-grid and achieving full energy independence. This is truly solar for the future."

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.
