Franklin Whole Home Unveils Advanced Energy Storage for U.S. Residential Market
Uniquely integrated battery and control system powers potential for American homeowners
San Francisco, CA - Jan. 5, 2022 — Franklin Whole Home, a privately funded cleantech company, will launch its new residential storage solution for the U.S. market at the Intersolar conference on Jan. 13 in Long Beach, Calif. Designed to meet homeowners' future needs, the FranklinWH system integrates the most powerful AC battery with the industry's most intelligent controls to provide tomorrow's whole home power solution.
“We've brought together some of the brightest minds in storage and power electronics to design a system to carry homeowners well into the future,” says FranklinWH CEO David Wang. “Our system goes well beyond today's expectation for reliable back-up. It integrates more critical loads than competing systems and is the first to use artificial intelligence, making storage smarter and more complete.”
The Franklin Home Power solution fuses its lithium iron phosphate aPower battery with the aGate smart control system to provide uniquely advanced storage.
The aPower offers the highest AC battery capacity on the market. It can connect easily with existing solar systems while scaling up to 15 units for a total of 204 kWh to offer maximum home comfort. Because solar systems shut down during power outages, FranklinWH's Black Start feature creates a micro-grid for the home, keeping the PV system powered up when the grid goes down.
The aGate control system is the first in the industry to use adaptive learning algorithms, allowing it to manage the most complex load scenarios effectively. This gives it the unique ability not only to safeguard the main panel but also to integrate three additional large loads of the homeowner's choice, including such things as HVAC, pool heating, or electric vehicle charging. Its user-friendly app prompts homeowners to modify consumption when needed or sell power back to the grid at peak rates.
Optimized for efficient installation, the aPower's one-step “roll-and-hang” design is pre-assembled to make an installer's task fast, easy, and reliable. With FranklinWH, the electric main panel doesn't need to be upgraded, which avoids slow and expensive permitting, saving two to three months and up to $5,000 in avoided fees. The aGate's advanced monitoring helps installers pinpoint and resolve failures remotely.
Meeting or exceeding all industry certifications, the Franklin Home Power solution is backed by a 12-year warranty — two years more than the industry standard — and a bankability report from DNV.
FranklinWH will host a public event at Intersolar on Jan. 13 at 10 a.m. to mark the company's new UL certifications and bankability milestones. Featuring special remarks from CSA Group, Intertek and DNV representatives, the festivities will take place in booth #1059.
