Genesis Energy to test residential energy storage with Enphase home energy

The Enphase’s 1.2-kWh AC Battery

Enphase Energy plans to work with Genesis Energy, New Zealand’s largest electricity and gas retailer, to conduct a residential energy storage trial for the Enphase Storage System that includes the Enphase AC Battery, a scalable, modular energy storage system that seamlessly integrates with the Enphase Home Energy Solution.

The Enphase Home Energy Solution offers homeowners a plug-and-play Enphase AC Battery to store energy generated from their solar photovoltaic (PV) system. Through the installation of a smart grid ready Enphase Envoy-S Metered gateway, users can monitor and manage their home energy consumption through web-enabled devices and rightsize their energy storage system to maximize the value of their energy from the owner’s solar system.

“Enphase is delighted to be working with Genesis Energy for our inaugural trial in New Zealand,” said Greg Wolfson, storage product line director at Enphase. “As an integrated energy retailer, Genesis Energy is well placed to build on its unique mix of skills and services to deliver solar options to the New Zealand market. This includes storage solutions, which Genesis Energy views as a progressive step towards offering their customers versatile energy solutions.”

Genesis Energy’s Chief Executive Albert Brantley said, “The trial is another step forward in implementing the company’s strategy of delivering simple and smart energy solutions and services.”

Genesis Energy supplies electricity from thermal and renewable power stations. It has over nine years’ experience in the solar PV space with its solar schools initiative and is an energy retailer supplying electricity, natural gas and LPG to more than 630,000 customers across the country.
