Maui Brewing Company wanted to reduce its reliance on and the cost of utility power and instead transition to solar. It worked with installer ZeroBase to install an off-grid solar PV system supported by a massive 21 kW / 91 kWh SimpliPhi battery storage system. SimpliPhi’s batteries allow the company to extend the power of the sun’s energy far into the night.

The energy storage system is charged daily from the 16 kW solar PV array. The energy storage system powers a load panel supporting: vehicle chargers, internal and landscape lighting and emergency lighting for the facility, allowing these loads to continue operation during grid outages. At current utilization, battery capacity is discharged to 70-80% on a daily basis with peaks occurring during the day when the vehicle chargers are used at a peak capacity of 12 kW.
