Mercedes-Benz enters residential solar market
Mercedes-Benz Energy and Vivint Solar have announced they will bring the Mercedes-Benz home energy storage system to the US. The companies will introduce a joint offering that provides Mercedes-Benz batteries and Vivint Solar’s energy systems. For Vivint Solar, this is the first collaboration to integrate batteries with its offering.
This will also be Mercedes-Benz Energy’s first collaboration with a US solar provider. The storage systems are based on the battery technology used in Mercedes-Benz’s electric and hybrid vehicles. Each energy storage system will consist of modular 2.5kWh batteries that can be combined to create a system as large as 20kWh.
Vivint Solar will customise each system based on the customer’s needs.
