Energizer adds to solar battery options


The Energizer Homepower solar battery is coming to Australia and New Zealand through Entel Holdings.

The 6.1kWh Energizer Homepower is expected to cost between $7,500 to $8,500 including installation and a 10-year/10,000 cycle warranty.

It is said to be compatible with existing and new solar installations, and is virtual power plant ready.

Add-on modules increase the capacity to as much as 24.4kWh in 6.1kWh steps.

"Energizer Homepower is well-positioned to give homeowners a premium option that utilises smart technology to give control back to rooftop solar customers, enabling homeowners to store and use their solar energy more effectively," said Entel Holdings general manager Tigran Aganesov.

"The batteries also look incredible, a great fit for any home. The system's weatherproof design also makes it suitable for indoor and outdoor installation," he added.

The Energizer Homepower app (iOS, Android and web) gives homeowners the option to store energy during off-peak periods, and then use it during peak periods when energy prices are high.

A second app guides technicians through the installation process, validating their work as they go. Combined with simplified connections, this is said to reduce installation time.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
