CALGARY, Alberta and ADELAIDE, Australia, Dec. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eguana Technologies (TSX.V: EGT) (OTCQB: EGTYF) is pleased to announce its Australian distribution partner AC Solar Warehouse has the Eguana Evolve available in South Australia and will distribute to qualified system providers under the Marshall Liberal Government’s Home Battery Scheme (“HBS”). The HBS plans to outfit 40,000 South Australian households with Virtual Power Plan (“VPP”) ready integrated battery systems by providing access to a $100 million in State Government subsidies to pay installations.
“Strategically we are on track to become the dominant supplier of energy storage in South Australia (“SA”),” stated Brent Harris, Chief Technology Officer for Eguana Technologies. “Our SA order book has crossed the $1.5 million mark in less than two weeks and as we establish our System Provider partner network in the market, we recognize they require capable distribution partners to support their growth. It’s great to see our partner AC Solar Warehouse stepping in to ensure this success.”
The South Australian government’s Home Battery Scheme is accelerating residential energy storage growth in the world’s highest penetration rooftop solar PV market. Coupled with the Government grant consumers that purchase registered systems will also have access to CECF’s 100 million for additional financing. Eguana’s Evolve residential energy storage system is ideally suited for the market with its VPP capable AC coupled format supporting backup operation with solar charging ensuring that both new and retrofit customers can get the maximum value out of their energy storage purchase.
“Eguana has made a remarkable commitment in establishing its manufacturing capacity in South Australia,” said Grant Behrendorff, Managing Director at AC Solar Warehouse. “We are excited to support their Australian expansion. We have long history of supporting our customer base across Australia and look forward to further enhancing our presence in the SA market with local stock and just in time delivery of the full range of solar and storage equipment for eligible System Providers.”
Eguana and AC Solar Warehouse will be hosting a product orientation and training event for local installers in Adelaide on December 13th. Please contact Mark Colwell if you are interested in attending. See below for details.
