Energy Storage Partner Program

Morningstar’s Energy Storage Partner™ program (ESP) is an ongoing collaboration with selected premium battery manufacturers with advanced technologies/chemistries. A team effort, ESP verifies, confirms and thoroughly documents recommended charge settings along with best practices, to provide system designers and installers with as close to a “plug and play” solution as possible when adding energy storage to a solar electric system or upgrading an existing one.The program’s initial focus is lithium technology batteries, with other types planned in the future. With over eight lines and 30 models of charge controllers for specific applications, and 25 years of proven reliability in the category, Morningstar is widely recognized as the industry’s leader in charging technology and the first choice for mission-critical systems. ESP benefits for installers, system designers, and others include:

  1. Easier and faster installations: charge and other controller settings are pre-determined, documented, and published for specific battery and Morningstar controller models
  2. A more proven, better documented and controlled storage system
  3. Peace of mind with lithium batteries which comes from assured compatibility between batteries and other system components
  4. With existing energy storage systems, a fast, safe and reliable path to upgrading with lithium technology batteries with a comprehensive, approved Integration Guide including all essential information for a “drop-in” replacement
