KOHLER, Wis. - Aug. 29, 2022 - Kohler Power - through its Home Energy Management Systems division - and subsidiary Heila Technologies will join the RE+ (previously known as SPI Solar Power International) 2022 Trade Show highlighting the brands' newest innovations within the solar energy space. This marks the first time that the two companies are both exhibiting at the same show since Heila was acquired by Kohler Co. in early 2022.
Kohler (Booth #3873) will present its KOHLER Power Reserve Energy Storage System, a modular backup system to store the solar energy gathered throughout the day and reserves that power for use whenever needed for additional energy savings and resiliency. Kohler offers flexible installation options with both AC- and DC-coupled units, allowing installers and dealers to service all customers with a single, reliable brand and for users to access the stored solar power without costly add-ons or electrical re-work.
Additionally, homeowners can access and manage their stored solar power in the KOHLER Power Reserve system through an intuitive app that provides insights into real-time power flow for the home, timeline of power information for the day, and historical statistics for the system. It also allows users to choose the operation mode for their system (back-up, self-supply, or time-of-use) to personalize their battery's storage and output.
Heila (Booth #4036) will showcase the Heila EDGE® microgrid control platform. This decentralized and modular platform makes it easy to connect, coordinate, and optimize solar PV arrays, batteries, and other distributed energy resources (DERs). Using emergent intelligence to link components, the Heila EDGE creates a self-organizing network that significantly minimizes the system's complexity and costs. This adaptability allows the platform to address almost any application priority, whether microgrid resiliency, behind-the-meter economic optimization, fleet management, or more.
With the Heila EDGE, system owners and operators gain unrivaled vision, superior command, and improved performance with a single, simple lens to reduce costs, lower carbon emissions, and increase resiliency. The platform's customizable and modular design also enables rapid scalability to keep pace with demand changes and grid maturation, making it one of the most flexible products on the market.
RE+ brings the modern energy industry together to foster a cleaner future for all. The largest and most comprehensive event in North America for the clean energy industry, RE+ is comprised of: Solar Power International (our flagship event), Energy Storage International, RE+ Power (including wind, and hydrogen and fuel cells), and RE+ Infrastructure (electric vehicles and microgrids) and brings together an extensive alliance of renewable energy leaders for multiple days of programming and networking opportunities. This year's event takes place Sept. 19-22 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.
