NeoVolta Featured on CBS News Channel 8 San Diego

Solar Battery Manufacturer on the Leading Edge of the Energy Storage Revolution

San Diego, CA, February 19, 2020NEOVOLTA INC. (OTCQB: NEOV) – NeoVolta, a manufacturer of home solar energy storage systems, has been featured on the CBS News Channel 8 morning show in San Diego. The four-minute segment aired Monday, February 10, and demonstrated the advantages of the NeoVolta NV14 advanced energy storage system. NeoVolta has also recently been profiled by the San Diego Business Journal and Greentech Media.

CBS News 8’s Eric Kahnert went inside NeoVolta’s 21,000-square-foot manufacturing facility and showed the assembly of an NV14. With this system, the energy generated by rooftop panels is saved in a battery for later use. The NV14 provides protection against blackouts, keeping refrigeration, computers, lights, and televisions powered during the crisis. As the segment pointed out, Californians have been facing widespread power shutoffs to prevent wildfires.

What’s more, the stored solar energy can be used in the evening, when “peak demand” utility rates are often twice as high. Bypassing the grid at night allows homeowners to achieve significant savings on their monthly utility bills.

The NeoVolta NV14 has a high storage capacity of 14.4 kilowatt-hours of energy, enough to power critical loads for an average-sized home overnight. Along with its high capacity, the battery can charge or discharge 7.7 kilowatts of instantaneous power, more than most competitors in its class—all at a very competitive price point.

Kahnert interviewed company CEO Brent Willson, a former Colonel in the Marine Corps. As a base commander in Hawaii, Willson directed the installation of a solar storage system to provide critical backup power. After retiring from the military, he set out to create a residential version that combined high performance with safety and affordability.

Kahnert also spoke with customer Doug Grinnell, who had a NeoVolta battery installed in October 2019. Grinnell, an attorney who works from home, purchased the system to avoid high energy bills. Less than a month later, a thousand homes in his area lost power during a blackout.

“We were watching TV, they weren’t,” said Grinnell. “We were making dinner, they weren’t.”
