Germany-based Sonnenbatterie, a manufacturer of residential and commercial energy storage solutions, is entering the U.S. energy market with the opening of the Sonnenbatterie Center in Los Angeles, operated by solar installer and distributor SK Solar USA.

Sonnenbatterie reports that its first units to arrive in North America are currently being installed and tested at various locations throughout Southern California. The company adds that sales operations will begin later this year.

According to Sonnenbatterie, the company's solutions incorporate lithium iron phosphate cells with a user-friendly interface that allows users to manage their storage system through smartphones.

"Sonnenbatterie has integrated smart meter technology into every unit, allowing our customers to switch to battery power automatically when they are reaching their demand charge limits," says Boris von Bormann, country manager of Sonnenbatterie North America.

The company notes that it is currently accepting applications for new distribution and installation partners.
