The first residential installation of the Avalon System was completed on December 21st, in the Greater Philadelphia Area. The system installers were excited about the simplicity of the system and the ease of commissioning, which took less than five minutes.

The homeowners have already begun to experience the benefits of a more resilient, efficient, and intelligent energy management system.
“We’ve redesigned every step it takes to commission this equipment,” added Will Gathright, CIO. “My goal was for anyone to be able to confidently commission an Avalon system regardless of how much experience you’ve had with energy storage in the past.”
Furthermore, for homeowners, Avalon may be turned into a source of revenue through the EnergyBroker program by selling energy into wholesale markets or to extra energy. This helps achieve a shorter payback period while contributing to a more resilient and efficient power grid.
