Tabuchi Launches Adjustable Solar-Plus-Storage Controls for Homes

Published on July 14, 2016

Tabuchi America, a solar-plus-storage provider, announced new functionalities to their residential system that will help customers optimize their solar investment. The four modes enable customers to prioritize their specific needs from their solar-plus-storage system, from reducing costs to ensuring reliable backup power. This unprecedented level of control is designed to help consumers make the most out of their solar investment with the benefits most appropriate for their needs.

Tabuchi America’s solar-plus-storage modes give customers powerful flexibility to optimize their system as policies and customer needs change. The new system offers four different modes for every homeowner persona on the block.

  • The Power Saver: 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.
  • The Green Pioneer: 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.
  • The Backup Power: Home Backup Mode ensures reliable power supply in all circumstances. This mode safeguards the homeowner during blackouts, storms or anytime electricity is unreliable.
  • The Peak Protector: 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’s solar-plus-storage and inverter technologies are designed to help US homeowners reduce electricity costs and efficiently manage their energy use. The company’s grid-friendly technologies are also designed to make it easier for utilities to directly manage distributed solar and stabilize distributed assets. 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.
