The Residential Energy Storage Hub offers secure home power for the residential market segment, including uninterruptible, distortion-free power capabilities, as well as an ability to store energy from renewable sources or from the electric grid, the company says. The hub also has the ability to be grid-connected so that either on a regular or occasional basis the homeowner can participate in demand response and/or power curtailment with a local utility.
