Solar Storage Solutions with CivicSolar, SimpliPhi Power and Schneider Electric

Standard solar storage systems can be complicated, unreliable and hazardous, causing malfunctions and a loss of power even during grid failure when back-up power is so critical. As a result, more and more people are looking for ways to safeguard their homes from power outages, as well as streamline the decision making process as to what the best solution is from the standpoint of simplicity, safety, performance and longevity. There are many different types of storage solutions on the market today that make it very difficult for people to understand the difference between a marketing claim and a reliable product. To make matters worse, the influx of more lithium ion chemistry types across battery manufacturers in the market makes it hard to know what is a safe and reliable lithium ion battery and what is not.

To combat this confusion and lack of clarity between different types of lithium ion batteries, this webinar introduces a proven non-toxic, safe and reliable battery solution that is available for storing solar energy, SimpliPhi Power’s AccESS. During this 30-minute presentation, the participants take customers through the reasons why the lithium ferro phosphate (LFP) battery chemistry utilized by SimpliPhi’s fully integrated AccESS is better than standard solutions, in addition to the environmental impact between the lithium ferro (iron) phosphate (LFP) and the earlier generation lithium ion chemistries that utilize cobalt.

In addition, CivicSolar explains why it’s important to have a safety vetting process when selecting installers and partners.
