UK solar PV wholesaler Metgen has announced a new deal with Dutch-based business Nedap that will see the distributor stock the company’s PowerRouter family of storage units.

Metgen will offer a number of models from the PowerRouter range in various different capacities. Metgen believes that the new range will help customers to maximise solar-generated electricity as well as provide effective off-grid solutions.  

Commenting on the partnership, Tim Roebuck head of sales and marketing at Metgen said: “The PowerRouter is not just your standard inverter; we see it as the being part of the bigger picture – call it Solar 2.0. It’s a fully integrated power management system, a solution which the residential market has been looking for and a solution our customers have been waiting to sell. End customers can generate their own renewable energy, store it, use it, or feed it to the grid.”

Roebuck continued: “We know the market is ready – seeing the increased volume of sales of both the ImmerSUN & Solar iBoost (PV to hot water) – the market wants to invest in products that continue to offer savings & independence from the grid.”

Managing Director of Metgen Ed Webb added: “The impact of renewable energy source on the grid is significant. Globally, more advanced networks than ours are already putting in place incentives to promote technologies that facilitate the ongoing management of national grids given these conditions. Phase shifting power usage to match power generation in the renewable age is one of the challenges that will face network operators and consumers alike.”

Metgen & Nedap are hosting ‘an introduction to the PowerRouter’ event on 3 October at the Bartley Lodge Hotel near Southampton – contact Metgen for more information.
