GCL System Integration Technology Co. Ltd (GCL-SI), a subsidiary of the world’s leading energy group, GCL, hosted two workshops in South Africa last week to showcase its latest integrated solar system, G-Home Solar Kit.
The two workshops were presented by GCL-SI and its distributor Mustek, one of the largest assemblers and distributors in South Africa, in Johannesburg on Feb 15 and Feb 17 in Cape Town respectively.
GCL’s G-Home Solar Kit consists of solar panels, mounting system, inverter, intelligent energy management system and energy storage system (optional). The kit, which makes self-consumption of solar energy, helps reduce users’ electricity bills as well as the carbon footprint.
For the energy storage system, users can choose GCL’s E-KwBe that launched last year. The lithium battery is charged by solar panels during the daytime to store excess electricity and supply power to a home load as needed later, maximizing consumers’ self-sufficiency by solar power.
The Solar Kit also comes with a yield stimulation model, which helps determine the most suitable energy storage size based on user’s consumption profile, roof size and annual solar energy production.
The energy management system will allow users to connect digital devices (PC, tablet or smart phone) to the energy storage system. With that, users can monitor and evaluate the energy storage unit.
“GCL-SI aspires to incorporate green energy into daily life by creating intelligent products that make solar technology more efficient,” said James Hu, president of GCL-SI Overseas BU. With that vision and mission, GCL-SI plans to hold workshops in more regions around the world in the coming year to share the latest products and technologies.
