Sonnen is a German company who has been manufacturing this battery appliance for some time now. There are 10,000 units installed worldwide.
The Sonnenbatterie is capable of several functions, battery backup, off grid electric systems and power management.
While our utility tariff does not include time of use metering and we have not seen a reduction in net metering value, these two things loom large on the horizon. In an effort to find solutions for the changing regulatory landscape we have been looking at battery technologies. We have spent the last two years following SonnenBatterie and staying in contact to be trained and ready for their release in the US.
We have also been following Tesla and while their battery shows huge promise and an aggressive price, availability is still unclear. While Sonnen has a large installed base, Tesla is just getting started. Beyond that the Tesla battery has none of the software and hardware capabilities of the Sonnen.
We look forward to offering both solutions. In the meantime we have a Sonnebatterie in our office and look forward to working with all of you to meet your on going energy needs.
