OutBack Power’s Battery-Based Inverters Receive Utility Approval In Hawaii

Posted by NAW Staff on June 04, 2015 No Comments

OutBack Power Technologies Inc. says Hawaiian Electric Cos. (HECO) has approved the company's Radian, FX and FXR multi-mode inverter/chargers for transient overvoltage self-certification.

OutBack says its products are the first battery-backed inverters to qualify for HECO's fast-trip requirements. Hawaii recently announced plans to generate 100% of its electricity using renewable energy by 2045.

‘OutBack Power shares Hawaii's commitment to renewable energy, but, to achieve that goal, energy storage is a requirement,’ says Brandon Provalenko, director of North American sales at OutBack Power. ‘HECO's certification of our battery-backed inverters validates the market need for energy storage and promotes a new energy future for Hawaii.’
