Smart home system manufacturer Savant has announced a brand-new integration with leading energy storage power system manufacturers Schneider Electric, Fortress Power, Sol-Ark, and HomeGrid, and powered by Lithion. Additionally, the company has also announced that select, out-of-the-box solutions will soon be available direct from Savant dealers through the Savant Dealer Store.
“Savant is focused on not only making every electrical panel smart but adding value to this intelligent energy platform with industry-leading, advanced brand integration,” states George Katsiris, vice president, product evangelist at Savant.
“Advanced integration allows for the Savant app to automatically report key insights such as battery state-of-charge, historical trends, and more. Savant is the only company offering dealers this level of scalability across the energy management category, with add-on battery storage solutions starting under $20,000.”
Savant’s Integrations Offer Greater Options for Energy Storage in the Home
Supporting clean whole-home power, Savant will carry a choice of battery storage systems that will accommodate projects up to 600 AMPs, with options that include single- and three-phase configurations.
System choices will range from 7kW to 11kWh, and 500kW to 1100kWh, with Savant emphasizing its dealer support team can help integrators design system solutions for a variety of applications such as on-the-grid backup home systems and off-the-grid home backup systems.
For more entry level systems, the company says it will offer packages up to 200 AMPs that range in power from 9kW to 19kWh, scaling up from 45kW to 11kWh. These systems will incorporate hybrid inverters that manage solar and battery storage, while offering AC or DC solar coupling.
Savant says that DC-coupled systems add energy efficiency, and these systems can use solar energy to automatically initiate battery charging without the need for AC conversion.
The company says these packages will be available to professional integrators mid second quarter (Q2) 2022.
