Huawei Launches Smart Solar Energy System for Kenyan Homes

Huawei FusionSolar has today introduced its integrated solar energy solution system for residential use. This is the Luna 2000, the flagship product of FusionSolar, a new line the company introduced last year.

More homeowners in Kenya have not only considered going off-grid, a good number are already doing so, and in the process turning their houses into power plants. An important system for everyone doing this is the Home Energy Storage System (ESS). This is a device that stores electricity as chemical energy, playing an important role in the energy transition.

Huawei’s Luna 2000 is a residential energy storage system (ESS) promising optimal electricity costs.

The company says its Smart Solar solution harnesses more than 30 years of expertise. By integrating AI and Cloud, Huawei says it has further incorporated the latest of technologies with Photovoltaics (PV) for optimal power generation.

This, the company says, makes their solar power plant to be:

  1. Highly efficient,
  2. safe and
  3. reliable.

The ESS supports features like smart operation and maintenance, and grid supporting capabilities. Huawei says their system builds the foundation for solar to become the main energy source.

Huawei says not only will the Luna 2000 increase the self-consumption rate of solar energy, it will also provide critical support during power outages or load shedding. Since it is equipped with backup power boxes, it will always keep your internet and household appliances on.

“Indeed the concept of carbon neutrality is not new to us. At Huawei, we pride ourselves for working towards reducing our carbon footprint and for accelerating carbon neutrality in the countries we operate in. For many years, we have developed our expertise in energy solutions to power base stations and data centers, and installed our first solar energy solutions almost 15 years ago” said Huawei Kenya CEO Will Meng at the launch.

“Today, we officially launch our new energy storage solution – the LUNA 2000 – suitable for residential scenarios; expound on our FusionSolar Smart PV solutions for commercial and industrial scenarios and, also introduce our Smart PV Solutions training and certification program to you.” 

“It indeed is in our best interest to increase the uptake of solar as a reliable, safe and efficient renewable source of energy in Kenya. We pledge to continue listening and acting upon our customers’ needs, increase our investment in solar energy research and development, and also continue working closely with local partners, like you. We believe in shared effort and success! Thank you very much for your time and continuous trust and support! “

“I am very delighted to witness this launch because I know it will be one of the sources of success to achieving our Vision2030 dream.  In the energy act 2019, renewable energy is one of the critical subjects devoted in the act and this product meets those requirements.
