SolarMax Technology Doubles Back-Up Power Capacity with Expanded FLEX Energy Storage System™

Sparked by strong demand for the groundbreaking energy storage system the company launched last year, SolarMax Technology has introduced a new model that more than doubles the amount of power homeowners can access when the grid goes down.  The 10kWh FLEX™ Energy Storage System, which combines two batteries with an inverter, targets the U.S. residential housing market.

Unlike many battery back-up systems, the FLEX™ requires no additional components or labor assembly by the customer. The fully integrated, all-in-one design saves consumers thousands compared to existing “ala carte” solutions that require the purchase of separate component parts in order to achieve comparable functionality.

The lithium-ion powered batteries pack plenty of electricity when fully charged. When coupled with solar, the FLEX™ system can power a refrigerator, flat screen TV, laptop computer and five 7-watt LED lights for days after an outage – while still having enough power to keep a life-saving oxygen machine running for multiple hours.

SolarMax will continue focusing its marketing efforts on existing solar customers, homeowners considering the value proposition of converting to solar, and even non-solar customers who simply want a reliable source of power when blackouts occur.

“If you’re a homeowner, the most important – and, often, the only thing – you’re concerned about in a black-out is being able to immediately switch over to a reliable source of back-up power,” said SolarMax CEO David Hsu.  “That’s the profile of the FLEX™ customer.  We designed and engineered the solution to offer a very strong value proposition.”

As exclusive worldwide distributor, SolarMax featured the new, higher capacity 10kWh model at the 2017 Solar Power International convention in Las VegasSeptember 10 -13.  To learn more, go to the website at www.solarmaxtech.com.
