September 6, 2018 - San Diego, CA – sonnen, the global market leader in smart residential energy storage, today announced that its groundbreaking and industry-disrupting product, energy automation with ecoLinx, has been recognized as a winner of the 2018 CE Pro BEST Award in the Energy Management category.
It’s been a while since custom integrators could get “energized” about a new equipment category. But residential energy storage could "spark" a whole new wave of enthusiasm, along with high profits and recurring monthly revenue (RMR), among integrators. The newest entrant into the space is sonnen, a 10-year-old Germany-based maker of high-end residential energy storage systems. The company’s technology is widespread in Europe, serving nearly 30,000 homes.
At the tail end of installing 15 solar plus storage microgrids across Puerto Rico — all of the work charitable — Sonnen and Pura Energia are providing humanitarian relief and a hint of the energy model the island could become.
High in the mountains of central Puerto Rico, a school that’s been without power for five months since Hurricane Maria has given up on the island’s utility. Classrooms at the SU Matrullas school in Orocovis are now entirely powered by solar panels and battery storage systems supplied by sonnen GmbH and local developer Pura Energia.
