Sun Power, a provider of residential solar technology and energy services, has expanded its portfolio of energy storage products with the launch of a 19.5 kWh and 39 kWh SunVault. These new battery configurations provide increased energy density and maximize battery space compared to previous versions of SunVault, providing the ability to store more energy in a single enclosure. For customers, this means they can buy more energy storage for less money and install it in less wall space, with the ability to build a larger system as the energy needs of the house evolve. SunPower has also made design upgrades that can make SunVault faster and easier to install.
“Every homeowner has unique energy storage needs – some want the peace of mind of being able to power essentials during a power outage like a fridge and WiFi, while others want the flexibility to recharge also have an EV or run their air conditioning,” said Nate Coleman, director of product at SunPower. “With these new storage sizes and higher power output from multiple UPSs, SunVault’s modular configuration allows customers to get the storage size they need today with the assurance that they can expand their system as their home energy needs change.”
Homeowners can manage their SunVault energy storage with the mySunPower app to see how much energy is available during peak demand to reserve in the event of an outage or to reduce energy costs by using stored energy. Additionally, all SunVault energy storage systems are backed by a 10-year warranty regardless of how the battery is charged and discharged over time.
With this launch, SunVault is now available in five configurations: 13 kWh, 19.5 kWh, 26 kWh, 39 kWh, and 52 kWh. Some of these options include multiple inverters. SunVault configurations with multiple inverters and 26kWh+ storage capacity have the potential to power the whole house, so customers don’t have to choose between convenience and essential loads during an outage.
New SunVault sizes will be available in early 2023.
