Integration of energies and installation of domestic batteries, new challenges for the installation company in the energy transition
The second proposal announced was the opportunity for installers to be a domestic battery installer officially recognized by sonnen, a company known as the German Tesla.
Webatt has reached an agreement with sonnen to be its distributor. The added value of sonnen “is not massively sell their batteries to installers, they want the person who installs batteries and installs self-consumption systems is an installer who has passed a qualification filter. A trained installer who wants to train. ” In this sense, “the installer that demonstrates that he has done installations with a quality, a expertise and a good way of working, can become a sonnen battery installer. This allows us to be able to filter and make what we start installing now to mount well so that when this grows we will not have a big problem. This is a filter in which we are working with Fegicat to make this course meaningful. We have already done the first installation course and we have 26 installers in Catalonia and we are preparing more for the rest of Spain, “Comino announced
The application of the sonnen domestic batteries is clear. In EspaiZero what was once a system formed by control, accumulation, investors and generation systems “we have replaced everything in a box, where we have a EspaiZero in small”. What’s more, the EspaiZero accumulation room is made up of the typical lead batteries and “now it transforms into that all the inverters and 80% of the batteries will go out and 2 boxes of sonnen batteries without maintenance and with 10,000 cycles will remain of guarantee charge, that is, 27 years of durability. This is a radical paradigm shift that will make the installer see it feasible. “
Today in the world there are 6 sonnen communities in use in Germany, Italy, Austria, the United States, Switzerland and Australia. In total, 120,000 people sharing energy. In Spain already has 60 clients.
Franc Comino concluded his speech affirming that “this technology is not a new technology, which has come today, but it is mature, it is not something that will come. It is an accumulated experience of more than 10 years with this type of technologies “.
