Solar Power WorldDecember 4, 2019911
Lithium-iron phosphate battery manufacturer Blue Planet Energy has responded to California’s energy crisis, spurred by recent wildfires and Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) events, with a sales solar incentive for battery backup solar-powered systems for home and business owners. Fire-safe Blue Ion 2.0 batteries from Blue Planet Energy enable power from different generation sources, like solar energy or generators, to be safely stored for use during utility grid disruptions, at night or for completely grid-independent systems. The Blue Ion solar incentive program is designed to offer a price break for new residential energy storage systems purchased by February 15, 2020, as well as assistance connecting with a local certified solar installer for Californians seeking to hedge against the costs of power loss.
“The recent power shutoffs are California’s hurricane,” said Blue Planet Energy VP of Business Development Gregg Murphy. “And just like hurricanes, losing power puts undue stress on our communities’ critical infrastructure and public safety. With PG&E stating that PSPS events could continue for the next decade, now is the time for energy independence and for Californians to focus on resilience solutions for homes, businesses, and in the community at large.”
Hawaii-based Blue Planet Energy is a leader in bringing power back to communities devastated by natural disasters. It was among the first to respond after the category 5 Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico. Blue Ion technology has been deployed at community water pumps, banks, medical facilities and in over 100 emergency shelters at schools across Puerto Rico through its work with global non-governmental organizations (NGOs) like the American Red Cross and Water Mission.
With a focus on resilience and expanding the use of sources of renewable energy, Blue Planet Energy founder and CEO Henk Rogers of video game Tetris fame innovated the Blue Ion line of energy storage solutions in 2014. At the core of Blue Ion technology is the industry’s safest lithium ferrous phosphate (LFP) cell chemistry and design, which has been approved to meet the stringent UL test methods for battery safety. A unique system architecture, quality build of components and an advanced Battery Management Unit (BMU) integrate additional safety and performance layers into the residential energy storage system with both hardware and software safeguards.
