Huawei launches New Smart PV Solution, Fusionsolar Residential Luna 2.0 into the Eastern Africa market


Huawei, the leading global provider of digital power products and solutions, has today launched new Smart PV Solution, Residential LUNA 2.0 into the Eastern Africa market. The LUNA 2.0 is an upgrade of the previously launched LUNA 1.0 which has been installed in thousands of residential homes and Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMME) offices across Eastern Africa.

Speaking during the launch of the product, Oliver, CEO, Huawei Digital Power Eastern Africa Region, noted that the energy industry has shifted from natural resources to technological innovation, giving rise to rapid growth for the solar industry. Over its 25 years of operation in East Africa, Huawei has a deep understanding of the region’s energy and technology requirements. We have launched Smart PV & ESS solutions for all scenarios in the African residential market, in our commitment to bring clean energy to every person, home, and organization.”

Additionally, Olivier asserted that quality is the cornerstone of the rapid development of the industry, pointing out that with the increase in sales and installations, the importance of quality will become inescapable. As such, three aspects of quality should be prioritized namely; product quality, delivery quality, and service quality. According to him, Huawei achieves product quality through product design and component selection because the company believes that an end-to-end high-quality target can only be achieved by building quality on processes.

Mr. Nick Lusson, the Vice President, Huawei Digital Power Sub-Saharan Africa Region, who delivered a presentation on the unique features of the new product LUNA 2.0. He highlighted that the LUNA 2.0 has better aesthetic innovation, high intelligence, active safety, and is extremely reliable. “LUNA 2.0 is like a work of art in your home” Nick remarked. He explained that the solution can be grouped into three categories depending on the energy needs of the customer, namely: 5 kW with 5 kWh battery capacity, 5 kW with 10 kWh capacity, and 5 kW with 15 kWh. In addition to this, the system can be expanded from 5kWh to 30kWh to meet specific requirements of each customer.

The LUNA 2.0 is a one-stop solution which offers stable and reliable power to homes, offices and apartments. Furthermore, the solution supports seamless on-grid and off-grid switchover through the SmartGuard, which prevents power interruption during power outages. Luna 2.0 also has an elegant and sleek design – it has no fuse, no LCD, and no buttons compared to other brands. The solar solution also has an intelligent monitoring and management system, which helps to ensure less downtime and better return on investment.

Lusson said the solar solution is a one-stop solution, its inverter has electromagnetic compatibility that meets national standards. Apart from that, the solution has SmartDesign 2.0, an online tool that allows installers to create a PV system with the 3D modeling function in order to provide a better experience and spot business success.

Besides LUNA, the other residential solution is iSitePower-M. ISitePower-M is an all-in-one modular Smart String Energy Storage system, with multi-scenario applications, such as apartments, business outlets, houses or villas. Additionally, Power-M is a hybrid power solution which integrates grid, solar, Diesel Generator (DG) and battery. It is widely used in off-grid and unreliable grid areas to provide reliable and stable power backup. Power-M has an integrated high-density design, ranging from 5kWh to 45kWh battery configuration, flexible to meet different customer energy needs.
