Briggs & Stratton Energy Solutions has launched its first SimpliPhi-branded energy storage system after acquiring the energy storage system provider last year. The SimpliPHI Energy Storage System consists of three core components: a 6-kW inverter, a 4.9-kWh battery and the EnergyTrak management software.
The SimpliPHI ESS can be AC- or DC-coupled and the inverter can scale up to nine units. The 4.9-kWh battery uses lithium iron phosphate (LFP) chemistry and can scale up to 72 modules for a total energy storage capacity of 358.5 kWh. Both the SimpliPHI inverter and battery are IP65 rated so they can be installed indoors or outdoors.
The SimpliPHI ESS also features EnergyTrak, a monitoring and control software platform that allows users to manage their energy usage through a mobile app that delivers real-time status and updates to home and business owners.
“Both Briggs & Stratton and SimpliPhi Power have a longstanding history of providing energy solutions built with quality and dependability as the highest priority. Coming together as one company, we’ve successfully leveraged the team’s complementary expertise to deliver more choice and more control than ever before so our customers have access to power when it matters most,” said Tom Rugg, senior vice president and president, Energy Solutions at Briggs & Stratton. “With aging power grids, more frequent outages and unpredictable weather patterns, the addition of the SimpliPHI ESS to our product lineup is another solution for people looking for an innovative, scalable energy system for their home or business.”
“Our energy storage solutions are held to industry-leading standards. From the chemistry, form factor and manufacturing processes of the batteries to the testing and validation requirements on behalf of our customers, we seek to provide a safer and more reliable solution,” said Catherine Von Burg, president and CEO, SimpliPhi Power.
The SimpliPHI ESS will be available to order beginning June 14, 2022.
