Published On Wed, Jul 13th, 2016
Tabuchi America announced new functionalities to their residential system that will help customers optimize their solar investment.
The four modes integrated in the system enable customers to prioritize their specific needs from their solar-plus-storage system, from reducing costs to ensuring reliable backup power. The company in a statement said that this level of control is designed to help consumers make the most out of their solar investment with the benefits most appropriate for their needs.
The new system offers four different modes -The Export Mode, Economy Power Mode, Home Backup Mode and Demand Response Mode.
- Export Mode helps customers save the maximum amount of money on their energy bills. It’s ideal for customers participating in Net Energy Metering (NEM) and Demand Response (DR) programs.
- Economy Power Mode maximizes the homeowner’s use of clean solar power. This mode is ideal for customers who need self-consumption and who that value sustainability.
- Home Backup Mode ensures reliable power supply in all circumstances. This mode safeguards the homeowner during blackouts, storms or anytime electricity is unreliable.
- Demand Response Mode reduces the impact of residential demand charges during peak demand. This mode is designed for customers in states like Arizona that want to lower their electric bills amid changing solar policies.
“Tabuchi America is committed to helping customers maximize their solar investment,” said Tabuchi Managing Director, Harumi McClure. “Different homeowners want different benefits out of their solar-plus-storage system. Our flexible modes empower homeowners to get precisely what they want even as utility rates and policies change.”
Tabuchi America’s solar-plus-storage and inverter technologies are designed to help U.S. homeowners reduce electricity costs and efficiently manage their energy use. The company’s four adjustable modes pairs with the system’s smart inverter for full compatibility with California’s Rule 21, which requires new solar inverters to automatically adjust to fluctuations in power flow to stabilize the grid.
