January 7, 2022 – Omega EMS, PowerCenter+ and Eguana Technologies Inc. have entered into agreements to launch a line of home energy storage systems into North American and Caribbean markets, which will be based on Eguana’s technology and energy storage platform.

The Duracell Power Center encompasses “fully integrated residential energy storage systems” that include the company’s proprietary power electronics system, low-voltage battery modules, user interface, and energy management capabilities.

The system is rated at 5-kW AC output with a modular battery design, which is scalable from 13-39 kWh in storage capacity. The NEMA 3R wall-mounted package is suitable for indoor and outdoor installations. The package is backed by a 10-year standard warranty.

Based in Calgary, Eguana designs and manufactures network-enabled, grid-interactive energy storage solutions (ESS) based on proprietary power control and fleet management technologies for residential and commercial applications.

A subsidiary of Omega based in San Jose, Calif., PowerCenter+ was created to bring new energy storage solutions to market.

Under the terms of the agreements, PowerCenter+ has committed to a minimum volume of 10,000 systems over three years. Eguana has committed to certify versions of its existing 5-kW/14-kWh expandable residential storage solution and its new 10-kW/28 kWh full-home backup solution for this product line.

Additionally, Eguana has completed a manufacturing agreement with Omega to manufacture systems in San Jose, including the provision of all non-battery working capital. Omega will produce both product lines. The companies will also collaborate on future product development and market opportunities for home energy storage solutions.
