OSAKA Nikkei–Panasonic Corp. 6752 on Thursday unveiled a solar power management and storage system for homes with the capacity to meet essential electricity needs for roughly two days.
The package includes a 4.65kwh lithium ion storage battery and a power station that regulates the solar cells and battery. The battery is priced at 1.21 million yen, with the power station going for 672,000 yen. The company, which will begin accepting orders on March 21, is targeting sales of 1,500 sets in fiscal 2012.
The system enables excess power generated during the day to be used at night. In the event of a power outage, it would be capable of supplying electricity for the bare minimum essentials, such as lights and the refrigerator, for around two days.
