Southern California Edison, the second-largest electric utility in the U.S., has approved NeoVolta’s NV14 home energy storage system for grid operations. The system was successfully installed at a home in Garden Grove on August 6, marking NeoVolta’s first expansion outside of San Diego County.
SoCal Edison now joins San Diego Gas & Electric, which approved the NV14 in June. The two utilities combined serve approximately 18 million people.
“Being approved for interconnection with SoCal Edison’s grid is a major milestone in the California rollout of our advanced energy storage system,” said Brent Willson, CEO of NeoVolta. “With this approval, NeoVolta’s coverage area now includes nearly all of Southern California.
“Southern Californians enjoy plenty of sunshine, but we also face some of the highest utility costs in the country. With the NV14, you’ll store solar energy during daylight and use it at night, when utility rates are highest. The NV14 provides a great hedge, as the utilities continue to adjust their rate programs to counter solar owner savings. And if either grid goes down for any reason, solar panels alone won’t keep the lights on. But the NV14 will instantly deliver the power to keep your home comfortable and connected.”
With the NeoVoltaNV14 home energy storage system, homeowners get maximum savings on their utility bill and take control of their own energy needs. Backed by a ten-year warranty, the NV14 can connect with any residential solar installation, new or existing. Energy generated by rooftop solar during the daytime is stored in its clean, cobalt-free battery and used during evening “peak demand” hours, when utility rates are often twice as high. The system’s inverter can be coupled to a DC panel for greater efficiency and additional savings.
