There’s a reason KumuKit™ is Long Island's Best Choice.
We make the process effortless.
Worried about all the paperwork? Don’t be. We’ll take care of it all, including installation permits, any homeowners' association applications, and the forms required to store electricity with your electric utility. We’ll even give you sample tax
forms to help you file properly for your tax incentives.
We offer industry-leading Warranties and Support.
Our panels and microinverters include industry-leading 25 year warranties. Beyond that, we offer a 10-year warranty on installation and workmanship. We have dedicated mobile customer service technicians, on call for dispatch to your home in the event
of a system problem. We're also available by phone, email, and text messaging for help with more minor issues, like help with checking your energy savings on line with our web-based monitoring system.
Every KumuKit™ is custom configured with your choice of top-tier panels. For the shortest payback period and best lifetime return on investment, we recommend our High Efficiency LG® panels. For maximum performance or limited roof space, we suggest
our Maximum Efficiency LG NeoN® panels. When combined with micro-inverters, these premium panels offer the highest AC electricity production per square foot.
We use only the best hardware.
Installing anything on your roof is cause for concern. We flash all roof penetrations. For asphalt or wood shingle we use commercial grade anodized aluminum or galvanized steel flashings. For Tile roofs we use Lead Flashing. When flashing is not possible
such as on rolled composite materials, we use commercial-grade, 50 year sealant.
Acxis® Communication Filter
This innovative communication filter optimizes your system’s power line communications and isolates your system from potential cross-talk or line interference.
Your KumuKit™ System includes system monitoring via your web browser, allowing you to track weekly, daily, or even hourly performance of your system. You'll also be able to view a summary of how you are reducing your carbon footprint. All of this is available in real-time on your computer or mobile device.
The KumuKit™ Advantage: Smarter Solar.
Welcome to the way forward—KumuKit™ with Smart Energy Management. When you enhance a PV system with Smart Energy Management, you get optimized energy production + optimized energy usage.
System visibility is achieved through secure cloud-based tools with an intuitive Energy Dashboard interface that makes it easy to manage select home loads with real-time visibility and historical reporting capability. You can shift time-of-use costs to your best advantage, see where energy is being consumed, identify electricity hogs, set electricity reduction and savings goals, and monitor your progress.
Adaptability and responsiveness to the grid are accomplished with our Smart Energy Management Controller. Compatible with most PV technology—old or new, micro or string inverters, including management of compliant smart PV systems. It can adapt to future utility requirements, address changing home and grid conditions, maximize production and optimize overall energy efficiency.
A breakthrough in distributed energy resource management—our Powerblocks™ Smart Storage option enhances a PV system’s abilities and allows you to store your own PV energy. The modular design allows for easy upgrade and incremental expansion. The automatic emergency backup power feature provides for critical loads such as lighting, medical equipment, refrigerators, phone chargers, etc. during an outage. Powerblocks™ Smart Storage can also buffer, smooth out and stabilize the energy you want transferred back to the grid.
Smart Energy Management
Utilities around the world are rapidly moving away from simple electrical generation and distribution models to more intelligent and dynamic energy management systems. As technologies evolve so will the relationship between rooftop PV owners and their utilities. Grid connected energy producers will become essential partners able to share the benefits of a smarter interactive grid.
Smart Energy Management has the ability to leverage a PV system’s production to your advantage by automatically optimizing energy generation, usage and smart export. A secure cloud-based dashboard and toolset provide real-time PV energy generation and home usage visibility, putting easy home load monitoring and control at your fingertips. Simple and automated control of your energy means you can take advantage of all utility and grid support benefits.
Modular in design, and scalable, optional Powerblocks™ Smart Storage increases your PV system’s effectiveness by allowing both smart energy export or non-export/self consumption between specific times each day. Additional benefits include emergency backup for important loads such as lighting, medical equipment and refrigeration when needed.
An intelligent system that will provide benefits now, adapting to changing needs, grid challenges, Utility benefits and evolving solar energy policy—essentially future-proofing your PV system.
Imagine a community of rooftop PV systems upgraded with Smart Energy Management technology. Each maximizing customer savings, improving our grid, providing greater renewable energy interconnection—reducing reliance on imported oil, liquefied gas from fracking and saving precious green space from massive solar farms.
The average household consumes only 20-30% of PV energy generated within solar production hours. During peak solar production the excess energy sent to the grid by thousands of net-metered systems introduces instability and additional challenges to the grid. Smart Energy Management leverages Smart Storage to capture the excess PV production that is typically exported during the day.
The stored energy can later be smoothly exported to the grid when most advantageous, or used directly in your home instead of drawing energy from the grid during peak demand hours. It can also be used as your emergency reserve for critical loads during a power outage.
