Two members from Wind & Sun’s technical team, Luke Bithell and James Ford, have recently returned from an intensive week’s training at Solarwatt’s Dresden headquarters. The training was specifically aimed at giving Wind & Sun the necessary skills to introduce the Solarwatt MyReserve unit to the UK market.
The MyReserve is a battery storage system specifically designed to increase the self-consumption from existing and new solar PV systems. Unlike other competitor products it can be fitted to almost any panel and inverter types and purely operates using energy throughput from the solar PV DC strings.
Speaking on behalf of Wind & Sun, James Ford said “From a battery storage perspective Wind & Sun have a very strong presence in the off-grid renewable energy market. Over the past few years we have seen the emergence of a new breed of grid connected battery storage systems to reduce strain on the grid networks and to help home owners increase their independence from the unknowns of grid derived electricity.
Our requirements for the right system are that it is relatively easy to install and does not require lengthy and costly conversations with the electricity network. Furthermore the size of battery storage must be appropriate for the typical UK domestic system but still have flexibility to expand in mind.
I feel strongly that this product ticks all of the boxes for us. We were especially impressed with the safety and longevity of the battery as our priority is to sell systems that have the highest regard to safely installing lithium ion batteries in living spaces and creating the lowest cost-over-life use of a battery system”.
The next steps for Wind & Sun are to trial a handful of MyReserve systems at their own office and with selected trusted installers, after which we will be officially launching the system with Solarwatt in the UK. We will then provide certified installer training.
