CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Jan. 22, 2016) - Eguana Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EGT)(OTC PINK:STGYF), is pleased to announce that its AC Battery is the first energy storage device to be approved by the Hawaiian Electric Company under their new advanced interconnection requirements. When paired with the E-Gear Energy Management Controller as part of the E-Gear BESS, the integrated system now supports residential PV interconnection under Hawaii's new Customer Self-Supply tariff.

"The Customer Self-Supply program is the first step in reestablishing Hawaii's residential PV market in a sustainable way and we are proud to be suppliers of the first storage system to support this market evolution," said Brent Harris, Chief Technology Officer at Eguana Technologies. "In the coming weeks the 25 megawatts allocated under the transitional Grid Supply program will be fully subscribed and beyond that, solar installers will need to package their PV systems with an approved storage system for interconnection to the grid" added Harris. With the Hawaiian certification Eguana's power control system continues to lead the industry in global certifications and market readiness.

"We have spent 2015 developing and testing our BESS energy storage solution and are very pleased to start 2016 by having our solution included on the Hawaiian Electric list of qualified Customer Self-Supply equipment," said Chris DeBone, Managing Partner at E-Gear LLC. "There has been a lot of talk about storage systems and what they can do to support higher utilization of rooftop solar, and we are now ready to be the first to start demonstrating those solutions," said Steve Godmere, Managing Partner at E-Gear, LLC.

E-Gear has started building BESS inventory in Honolulu with deliveries scheduled to ramp through the first quarter.
