CALGARY, Alberta and ATLANTA, Jan. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Creative Solar USA and Eguana Technologies (TSX.V: EGT) (OTCQB: EGTYF) are pleased to announce a fleet of more than 20 residential energy storage systems has been installed and commissioned in the Greater Atlanta Area and Carroll County regions of Georgia as part of the Solarize Atlanta and Carrollton-Carroll campaigns.
In 2018 Creative Solar USA, chosen as the installer for the Solarize Carrollton-Carroll and Solarize Atlanta campaigns, contracted over 170 PV installations totaling over 1.2 MW. Creative Solar USA worked closely with its clients to ensure that the coordination of engineering, procurement, and on-site installation services exceeded proposed financial and power generation objectives. As part of the initial roll out two dozen Eguana Evolve Energy Storage systems were selected by Georgia homeowners as their battery system of choice.
“Eguana was the only provider of a cost-effective, AC-coupled lithium-ion energy storage system that was capable of delivering meaningful volumes of product in 2018,” said Russell Seifert, CEO of Creative Solar USA. “Eguana proved to be an excellent partner providing both web-based and on-site training along with promotional and installation support. We expect demand for residential and commercial energy storage to continue to rise in 2019 and have follow up orders placed with Eguana to continue to have the Evolve system available to homeowners.”
“We are very pleased with Creative Solar USA’s ability to sell energy storage systems in this developing market demonstrating the potential for widespread adoption of residential energy storage solutions across North America,” said Livio Filice, Director of Residential Sales, North America. “Looking forward, we have agreed to continue our strong relationship into 2019, backed with a 400 KWh order placed by Creative Solar USA to support ongoing interest in the Evolve system.”
“The solarize programs in Georgia have been designed to bring affordable renewable energy solutions to the people of Georgia” added Justin Holland, CEO of Eguana Technologies. “With Evolve’s modular approach Georgia families can maximize energy produced by their solar panels for self-consumption further reducing their dependency on local utilities, while maintaining confidence that during grid outages Evolve’s back up power capability will continue to deliver meaningful power to their essential loads. We look forward to continuing to support Russell and his team at Creative Solar USA.”
