Solar provider Sunnova Energy has worked with FranklinWH to develop a 208-V-compliant battery that can be used in multi-family homes. Sunnova New Homes will exclusively provide the FranklinWH battery.
“Each 208-V battery has 13.6 kWh of storage capacity, perfect for multi-family communities,” said Dirk Korte, VP of National Homebuilder Sales at Sunnova.. “The revolutionary new FranklinWH 120/208V battery solution is a game-changing addition that provides resilient backup power to homeowners whether on or off grid, day or night.”
“We are thrilled about our collaboration with Sunnova. Together, we’re dedicated to integrating the 208-V solution into both new multi-family constructions and existing home markets, ensuring residents have access to the most advanced and efficient energy solutions available,” said Ke Bi, COO, FranklinWH. “FranklinWH’s pioneering 208-V battery retains the high-performance features and advanced design of the 240-V aPower, providing safety coupled with robust functionality.”
The FranklinWH 120/208-V battery is out-of-the-box compliant with 208-V single-phase applications, fulfills California’s JA12 requirements, and is fully protected by Sunnova’s 25-year service coverage. In multi-family construction, providing sufficient power to each unit is critical. The 208V aPower battery offers a 13.6 kWh capacity and four aPowers may be linked in parallel for a total of 54.5 kWh per aGate intelligent power management controller. Multiple aGates may be used to provide control for individual units and blocks of units for focused storage and power supply that provide security and stability for each household.
