Panasonic to Start Accepting Orders for Energy Creation-storage Linked System for Home
Panasonic Corp. announced that it will start taking orders for its "Energy Creation-storage Linked System for Home" from March 21 in Japan. The system integrates Panasonic’s solar cells and lithium-ion storage battery unit using its newly-developed Power Station to enable effective use of electricity in normal circumstances as well as during power outages.
The March 11 earthquake last year raised public awareness about energy in Japan. For instance, people are more interested in the use of storage batteries for backup in case of blackout, and ways to conserve energy to reduce dependence on grid power supplies and generate sufficient energy for household use by solar or other means.
