Briggs & Stratton Introduces SimpliPHI Integrated Energy Storage System
SimpliPHI Energy Storage System brings scalable, intelligent energy management to homes and businesses.
Briggs & Stratton Energy Solutions announced yesterday the release of its SimpliPHI Energy Storage System (ESS), an integrated, scalable solution with proprietary hardware and software designed to allow customers to store, manage and control energy from multiple power generation sources to achieve power security and daily cost savings on their energy bills.
Named after SimpliPhi Power, Inc., the California-based manufacturer of energy storage systems acquired by Briggs & Stratton, LLC in 2021, the all-new integrated ESS is one solution to the rising demand for access to reliable, safe and affordable energy serving both residential and commercial markets.
The system’s state-of-the-art technology achieves seamless integration with three core components: a 6 kW SimpliPHI Inverter, a 4.9 kWh Battery and ‘EnergyTrak’ management software.
The SimpliPHI Inverter works seamlessly with batteries to deliver an efficient, easy-to-use experience for home and business owners. It also offers the flexibility to provide backup power to subsidize utility costs, or to run a power system completely off-grid.
The SimpliPHI Inverter can scale from one to nine units in any installation, creating redundancy and cost-effective increments of 6 kW to size power output to specific electrical loads.
The SimpliPHI ESS offers a 4.9 kWh Battery utilizing Lithium Ferro Phosphate (LFP) chemistry, enhanced by a Battery Management System (BMS) with closed-loop communications that integrates with the 6 kW Inverter and EnergyTrack management software.
For operational safety and security, the SimpliPHI 4.9 Battery runs cooler and has a longer cycle life and broader operating temperature range that eliminates the risk of thermal runaway. The SimpliPHI 4.9 Battery can scale from one module up to 72, for a total energy storage capacity of 358.5 kWh. Both SimpliPHI Inverter and Battery are IP65 rated so they can be installed indoors or outdoors.
The SimpliPHI ESS features EnergyTrak, a monitoring and control software platform which allows users to manage their energy usage through a mobile app that delivers real-time status and updates to home and business owners.
“Both Briggs & Stratton and SimpliPhi Power have a longstanding history of providing energy solutions built with quality and dependability as the highest priority. Coming together as one company, we’ve successfully leveraged the team’s complementary expertise to deliver more choice and more control than ever before so our customers have access to power when it matters most,” said Tom Rugg, senior vice president and president, Energy Solutions at Briggs & Stratton. “With aging power grids, more frequent outages and unpredictable weather patterns, the addition of the SimpliPHI ESS to our product lineup is another solution for people looking for an innovative, scalable energy system for their home or business.”
“Our energy storage solutions are held to industry-leading standards. From the chemistry, form factor and manufacturing processes of the batteries to the testing and validation requirements on behalf of our customers, we seek to provide a safer and more reliable solution,” said Catherine Von Burg, president and CEO, SimpliPhi Power.
The SimpliPHI ESS will be available to order beginning June 14, 2022.
