WHY SOLAR PV AND BATTERY STORAGE?

SOLAR PV SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN THE MAIN DRIVER BEHIND THE MASSIVE EXPANSION OF SOLAR ENERGY IN THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.  SOLAR PV ALLOWS THE HOMEOWNER TO PRODUCE ENERGY FOR THEIR HOME AND SAVE BIG OFF THEIR ELECTRIC BILL.  IN THE PAST HOMEOWNERS HAVE SENT THEIR EXCESS ENERGY TO THE UTILITY AND RECEIVED CREDITS FOR THEIR POWER.  NOW WITH THE MASSIVE IMPROVEMENT IN ENERGY STORAGE, COUPLED WITH A DRASTIC DECREASE IN THE COST OF BATTERIES, HOMEOWNERS CAN NOW STORE THE ENERGY THEY PRODUCE.  THIS DEVELOPMENT NOT ONLY ALLOWS YOU TO SAVE BIG OFF YOUR POWER BILL BUT IT ALSO ALLOWS HOME OWNERS TO HAVE BACK-UP POWER DURING A BLACKOUT DUE TO STORM OR ISSUES WITH THE ELECTRICAL GRID.

ABOUT US

  The  Harbor™ Smart Battery is powered by Panasonic Li-ion technology and is the most powerful and flexible smart battery system on the market.

Why Harbor Smart? 

  • Resilience – Black-start capability and giant capacity for extended outages

  • Self-supply – Switch to 100% solar power when you install a Harbor Smart Battery

  • Time of Use – Automatically optimize your energy consumption and take advantage of new time of use rate structures

  • Zero Export – Produce and use your own solar energy, even when net-metering or feed-in is not an option

Features:

  • Long Lasting –Up to 17.1kWh of storage capacity in a surprisingly small footprint means that you can power your home with solar 24/7

  • Powerful – Up to 10kW of instantaneous, real backup power ensures that you lose nothing when the grid goes down

  • Flexible – A single battery can take on cost-saving and backup power roles simultaneously

  • Efficient – DC coupled design eliminates needless and lossy power conversions common in other systems

During the day your PV system produces power that meets your home energy needs and any excess energy produced is sent to your battery system.  When the sun goes does, your home then uses the power stored in your batteries to meet your home's energy demands.  If you deplete your batteries before they can be recharged by the sun, then your system automatically switched over to grid power from the HECO.
