Solon Solar Energy System Gets First Energy In-Home Solar Roof for $1.9M
Minnesota utility Solon has partnered with the solar energy company Solar Roofing to install a solar energy system in the homes of its customers, including a $1,000 home solar fridge and solar energy storage system that can provide up to 1,200 kilowatt hours of electricity, the company announced.
The Solar Roof Energy System, which Solon is calling the Solon-Solar Energy System and can be ordered online, is a modular solar array that can be used for the installation of the solar fridge or solar energy systems.
The system also can be installed as a standalone unit, with the customers having their own solar panels installed on the roof.
The Solar Roof Systems are made by Solon and the solar companies are Solon PV Systems, which is based in Finland, and Solon Energy Systems, based in California.
The company said the new solar refrigerator and solar power storage system, which are built in the Solanese village of Vavrë, has a total of 912 kilowatts of solar energy stored and can provide energy to the system.
It can also be turned on and off, and the power is stored in the system, the Solons website said.
The solar power system can be connected to the Solos electrical system to deliver power to the customers, and it can be plugged into a wall outlet, the site said.
Solar Energy Systems has a long history of developing products for the energy storage market, including the Solar Energy Minimizer, which was launched in 2003 and has been used in Germany since 2012.
The company’s solar energy fridge has been in use for about 20 years, but the company said it has not made a large enough investment in the technology to make a significant investment in its new solar fridge, the Solar Roof System.
The solar energy units, which cost $1 per kilowatthour, can be purchased as a one-time purchase, or a subscription.
The storage system is available for the price of $100 a month, and can offer 1,400 kilowats of energy storage capacity, the website said, adding that the storage system can also charge a solar panel and battery and have up to 10 solar panels on the system for up to 15 hours a day.
Solon said the storage systems can be charged by a battery and charge the solar panels during the day and charge them during the night.
Solons solar energy refrigerator has been tested in two locations in the U.S., and in the future will be tested in three locations in Minnesota, the utility said.
