Evaluating Residential Storage Systems

Tuesday, September 25
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Location: Storage Central: Booth 3386

Customers want batteries - both for backup power and to compensate for changes in net metering policies. This open-forum discussion will cover the challenges that you may encounter as you install your first battery storage systems, including: Can you get prompt delivery for all the components you need? Is the system UL listed? Does the software work reliably among all components? Do incentives cover the specific equipment? Can you safely install CTs? Will the AHJ and utility sign off on the system? Is there compatibility with an existing PV system? Can you affordably connect the critical loads?

Barry Cinnamon

Chief Executive Officer
Cinnamon Energy Systems, Inc.

Barry Cinnamon is CEO of Cinnamon Energy Systems, a Silicon Valley solar and energy storage contractor. After 10,000 solar installations at Akeena and Westinghouse Solar, he's developed a pretty good perspective on the real-world economics of rooftop solar – including the benefits and challenges with installing residential and commercial energy storage systems.

Barry continues to work passionately towards better solar and battery storage public policies -- especially those that reduce soft costs. His rooftop tinkering led to the development of integrated racking (2007), AC solar modules (2009), and Spice Solar (the fastest way to install rooftop solar modules). He earned a BS Degree in Mechanical Engineering from MIT (his thesis was on a new type of flat plate collector) and an MBA degree in Marketing from Wharton. He is a licensed California C-46 Solar Contractor, NABCEP Emeritus solar installer, host of the weekly Energy Show on KDOW, regular contributor to Solar Wakeup Call and Greentech Media, and former CALLSA President and SEIA Board Member.
