March 11, 2014 - Sonnenbatterie today announced its arrival in the US energy market with a new distribution partner to serve the Southern California market.
The company enters the US market today with the opening its first Sonnenbatterie Center in Los Angeles, CA operated by SK Solar USA. The first Sonnenbatterie units to arrive in North America are currently being installed and tested at various locations throughout Southern California. Sales operations will begin later this year.
"Sonnenbatterie is the most trusted name in Germany for smart energy storage thanks to their reliability and ease of use," said Christoph Ostermann, Co-founder and CEO of Sonnenbatterie. "We look forward to earning the same trust and market leadership here in the United States."
Sonnenbatterie solutions incorporate next-generation Lithium-Iron-Phosphate cells with a user-friendly interface that allows users to manage their storage system through their smart phones. Sonnenbatteries also allow users to track their energy use and avoid peak demand charges.
"Sonnenbatterie has integrated smart meter technology into every unit, allowing our customers to switch to battery power automatically when they are reaching their demand charge limits," said Boris von Bormann, Country Manager of Sonnenbatterie North America. "We anticipate rapid uptake of our smart energy storage solutions, especially here in California where hotels, hospitals, and other small and large commercial buildings are looking to save on their energy costs."
