Manufacturer Moixa is aiming to increase the amount of aggregated energy storage capacity through its GridShare platform to take on future national tenders, with the help of a new partnership with UK distributor PV Kits Direct and a combined solar storage offer.
The company has launched a new package to UK households offering a 2kWh storage unit with a 2kW solar installation for under £5,000, including installation. The system was displayed at the Clean Energy Live exhibition in Birmingham, UK.
In addition to the attractive price point, the system allows homeowners to claim £50 cashback annually for the first three years if they make their battery available to Moixa Gridshare services.
The bundle is being brought to market with Moixa’s new distribution partner PV Kits Direct.
Speaking alongside PV Kits director Laura Gooden, Moixa managing director, Dudley Moor-Radford said: “We think the offer is a good deal because PV prices are at an all-time low and the our batteries are at the lower end of the price point in the market. So when you add the customer benefit of the Gridshare cashback, the payback is under ten years.
“PV Kits Direct is best placed to get the offer out into the market because all of their installers are established and experienced in the solar market.”
Due to the combination of easy installation, affordable cost and Gridshare cashback, Gooden said that the system brought an attractive new offer to market.
“This is the most exciting product we’ve come across. It’s got more unique selling points and the technology is more advanced,” she said.
The pair are targeting existing homeowners as well as new build and social housing markets with the offer and with Moixa expecting battery prices to fall by 20% in the next 12 months, Radford is hoping the company can reach “a critical mass” where it can take part in direct grid competitions such as the recent EFR tender, rather than via aggregators.
Moixa recently secured £20 million of new investment to fund expansion into other parts of Europe.
