Zendure Launches First Solar Energy Storage System for Balconies

Berlin, March.15, 2023 – Zendure – One of the fastest-growing energy-tech startups based in Silicon Valley in the US, China, and Japan – launches SolarFlow, the first plug-and-play solar energy storage system for balconies. Composed of a PV hub and up to four batteries, SolarFlow is compatible with common balcony solar panels, allowing apartment and condo dwellers the opportunity to store valuable solar energy during the day and use it at night. The capacity of up to 3,840Wh is sufficient to provide nighttime power for a family of four – and all their critical devices and appliances – in a sustainable and cost-effective manner.

High energy prices are a financial burden for many, and the call for sustainability in everyday life is getting louder as more and more people are turning to renewable energies and investing in their own photovoltaic (PV) systems to produce electricity independently. The German government also recognizes the need to support solar energy and recently has been making the purchase of solar systems and the associated electricity storage systems and inverters more affordable by making them tax-exempt and saving consumers 19 percent. This benefits not only energy-conscious homeowners but also apartment owners with balconies, in addition to roof and garden solar systems, looking for spacing-saving ways to store clean energy to be used at night.

Solar energy storage for balconies - manufacturer-independent, user-friendly, and cost-efficient

SolarFlow is a storage system for energy- and cost-conscious people. The storage system can be purchased as a complete package with a solar panel and micro-inverter from Zendure. Thanks to its compatibility with existing balcony solar panels on the market, it also can be used regardless of the manufacturer. Consumers who already have solar panels for the balcony and micro-inverter can thus easily connect SolarFlow to the existing equipment with an MC4 connector. SolarFlow's PV hub is equipped with an 800W output as well as an intelligent battery management system, storing excess energy in the associated LFP batteries. In this way, SolarFlow prevents generated energy from being wasted and makes it easily accessible at night. This can save consumers up to 32 percent of their annual energy costs.

SolarFlow is user-friendly and can be installed, assembled, and disassembled as a plug-and-play storage system with little effort. A single battery has a capacity of 960Wh and can be connected with up to three additional batteries by wirelessly stacking them on top of each other to expand to a maximum capacity of 3840Wh. This makes it ideal for people who have a power consumption of 2 to 4 kWh per night. SolarFlow comes with rugged metal housing and is IP65 waterproof, so consumers can place the storage system on a balcony, patio, or garden – even an allotment -- and expose it to wet weather without worry. SolarFlow can also be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth, so owners can always monitor the PV Hub and check the battery charge level.
