Panasonic launches new products in its portfolio of high-quality solar energy solutions with advanced performance and improved convenience, including four new EverVolt modules and a redesigned EverVolt Battery Storage cabinet with a reduced footprint.
The new EverVolt Solar Modules series provide homeowners with more options designed to accompany its EverVolt Battery Storage system. The four new modules feature higher efficiency and enhanced performance – even in high temperatures, as well as exceptional degradation rates. The modules are also backed, by Panasonic’s TripleGuard and AllGuard 25-year warranties.
The new modules, which will be available in 2021, include, EverVolt Solar Module Series 380W / 370W featuring an efficiency rating of 21.7% and 21.2%, respectively, and provides maximum power output for residential solar systems. EverVolt Solar Module Black Series 370W /360W modules feature an efficiency rating of 21.2% and 20.6%, respectively, with a sleek all-black aesthetic design.
When installed by a Panasonic Authorized, Premium or Elite installer and registered through the Panasonic website, homeowners will achieve EverVolt* warranty options such as TripleGuard Warranty and AllGuard Warranty. Modules installed by merchants outside of the Panasonic Installer Program receive a 25-year warranty on performance and product only.
Mukesh Sethi, Director, Solar and Energy Storage, Panasonic Life Solutions Company of America, a division of Panasonic Corporation of North America, said: “Building upon Panasonic’s 40-year legacy of commitment to and investment in the solar energy industry, we are excited to offer homeowners even more choices when considering high-efficiency modules. The new modules are the latest technological evolutions in our roadmap of innovative solutions designed with homeowners’ and installers’ needs in mind.”
Additionally, to an expanded suite of module options, homeowners will soon be able to store more energy per square foot with a redesign of the EverVolt home battery storage cabinet that gives the system a smaller footprint.
The improved cabinet will be 29x47x18 inches, 22 square inches smaller than the previous EverVolt battery storage model. The EverVolt battery storage is compatible with any solar module system or inverter and can be tailored to a homeowner’s individual needs. In addition to offering both the AC- and DC-coupled options, the battery storage system can be scaled down to as little as 11kWh of energy storage or expanded to 102kWh.
EverVolt battery storage system offers simple installation and is field serviceable. It comes equipped with advanced software and a user-friendly app for homeowners, allowing customization between multiple operating modes and visibility into system status. The battery storage product is backed by a 10-year product and performance warranty.
Sethi said: “Interest in solar energy continues to climb, with more homeowners considering complete energy systems inclusive of both panels and storage. Events over the last few years have prompted people to serious consider solar as a backup energy source in case of emergencies, as well as for everyday living, as a reliable alternative to the grid.”
