Huawei launches Luna solar solution in South Africa

The innovative Fusionsolar Residential solution is ideal for smaller scenarios, ranging from residences to small businesses.

A powerful new solar power solution, representing a technological advancement in energy storage, has been launched in South Africa by Huawei Digital Power Sub-Saharan Africa Region. 

The innovative Fusionsolar Residential Luna 2.0 can be utilised in smaller scenarios like residential, Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMME), and businesses in general.
It comes in different levels of capacity, starting at 10kW, with 5kWh battery capacity per module, expandable to 30kWh.

Given the country’s frequent power outages and unstable electricity supply, solar (photovoltaic or PV) and energy storage systems have become increasingly vital. By capturing and storing renewable energy like solar power, they provide an alternative power source for South Africa’s electricity needs. Additionally, they contribute to balancing the power grid, enhancing energy efficiency, and reducing electricity costs.

That said, in a challenging electricity-scarce environment like South Africa, ensuring the safety of energy storage systems is crucial. These systems involve electrical equipment and battery technology, and improper installation or maintenance may lead to risks like fires, electrical hazards, and even adverse environmental impact.

The Luna 2.0 system aims to enhance the advantages that solar and energy storage systems offer while also mitigating the safety issues associated with them. The Smart PV solution aims to do so while supporting seamless on-grid/off-grid switchover. Packaged in an elegant and sleek design, the Fusionsolar Residential Luna 2.0 also has no LCD, and no buttons compared to other brands. These design features have practical value too. From a safety perspective, vulnerable parts like LCD screens, buttons, and fans will fail within the lifetime of a piece of equipment and will require maintenance. That is why Huawei has designed its equipment without these vulnerable parts.

The solar solution also has an intelligent monitoring and management system, which helps to ensure less downtime and a better return on investment. Additionally, it offers intelligent energy storage, which allows each module to charge and discharge independently, with more backup time.

The Fusionsolar Luna 2.0 solution comes with several other safety features too. In the event of an emergency, for example, the inverter shuts down the roof voltage quickly to zero (PV optimisers ware needed for this function). This ensures a higher personal safety guarantee for owners, installation and maintenance personnel, and firefighters. Huawei has also built the solution to comply with the strictest international safety standard, NEC 2017, and meets fast shutdown requirements.  

Safety features include cell-level protection, electrical protection, structural protection, active protection, and emergency protection, including a built-in intelligent fire suppression kit for each battery. The system is also built to withstand extreme cold and heat as well as wind and sand, meaning that it’s ideally suited to South Africa’s diverse geographic environment. All Fusionsolar Luna 2.0 customers additionally receive a 10-year full replacement warranty on purchase of the product.  

The Fusionsolar Luna 2.0 solution is now available to dealers, trade partners, and installers.
