OutBack Power’s New Grid/Hybrid Solar Technology Ensures Future-Perfect Systems
|By Business Wire

Power Technologies, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of advanced
power electronics for renewable energy, backup power and mobile
applications, will showcase its newest Grid/Hybrid solar energy
innovations at Intersolar North America, July 8 to 10 in San Francisco.
With intelligent technology, including the new GridZero Radian
inverters, expanded energy storage options, and OPTICS
RE mobile monitoring and control application, OutBack Power has a
single-brand system solution for delivering grid independence to owners
and installers while ensuring compatibility with future energy storage
solutions through advanced battery-charging capabilities. This allows
users to master utility and incentive changes, reducing their anxiety
over costly solar investments and provides distributors and installers
the flexibility to address any energy scenario based upon customer needs.
Even as solar pricing becomes more competitive compared with other
energy sources, installers and homeowners still have to contend with
changes in utility policies and net metering incentives such as those in
flux in Hawaii or California utilities. Intelligent devices connected
via the Internet of Things have likewise disrupted the residential
renewable energy market, empowering homeowners and installers with
greater transparency into their energy usage, production and efficiency.
The next generation of solar energy systems will be defined by their
ability to store renewably-generated electricity for increasing grid
independence and providing backup solutions for emergencies.
“The connected smart home is expanding beyond communication between your
tablet and your lights or garage door to now include your solar panels
or backup power supply,” said Harvey Wilkinson, general manager of
OutBack Power. “Pairing solar and energy storage with smart controls and
24/7 monitoring make OutBack Power’s Grid/Hybrid technology a practical
solar investment for people that want to leverage reliability and
intelligent energy balancing in an economical system.”
OutBack Power’s award-winning
Radian family features GridZero technology and Advanced Battery
Charging for compatibility with any future or existing utility energy
scenario. OutBack is also introducing large-capacity 2V battery and
racking systems with modular terminal design as well as top-terminal
batteries and outdoor enclosures for value-oriented applications.
OutBack’s cloud-based monitoring and control dashboard, OPTICS RE,
provides users with the ability to easily monitor PV system operation,
performance and output via an intuitive dashboard from any
Internet-enabled device. With the ability to monitor and control
renewable energy installations, OPTICS RE ensures fewer service calls
and improved contact with customers, and saves users money, resulting in
greener lifestyles and greater satisfaction with their solar investments.
“It can be costly and time-consuming for contractors or energy system
designers to monitor, maintain or service far-off sites,” said Jaiya
DeCosta, owner of JD’s Electrical, a Hawaiian-based electrical
contracting firm. “Now that we can offer our customers transparency into
their systems’ performance and the ability to adjust settings for the
greatest return, we can also make the most efficient use of our teams
and resources by making service calls only when necessary.”

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
