SimpliPhi Power Rolls Out Residential Energy Storage Product

Ojai-based SimpliPhi Power, along with solar equipment distributor CivicSolar, announced today that SimpliPhi has rolled out a new, energy storage solution aimed at the residential solar market. According to the two, AccESS is an all-in-one, energy storage system aimed for use in the Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) in California. SimpliPhi's system is based on lithium ferrous phosphate batteries, which SimpliPhi says avoids the potential thermal runaway issues behind cobalt-based lithium batteries. SimpliPhi is led by CEO Catherine Von Burg.
