PetersenDean Roofing & Solar Names SolarEdge and LG Chem as Preferred Suppliers as Battery Storage Moves Forward

PetersenDean Roofing & Solar, the nation’s largest privately held solar
and roofing company, has joined forces with SolarEdge, a global leader
in PV inverters, power optimizers, and module-level monitoring services,
and LG Chem, the global leader in lithium-ion batteries. By offering the
combination of SolarEdge and LG Chem solutions, PetersenDean Roofing &
Solar will offer homeowners an affordable path to solar ownership and
energy storage.

SolarEdge will supply an intelligent inverter solution that maximizes
power generation at the individual PV module level. This solution
includes StorEdge technology, which manages PV production, consumption,
and both on-grid and backup storage to help increase energy independence
for PetersenDean’s residential installations. LG Chem will provide the
Residential Energy Storage Unit (RESU) 10H 9.8 kWh battery pack, which
is compatible with SolarEdge and uses the same technology that has been
used in other LG Chem applications.

“Technology has significantly evolved over the years—especially with
batteries and inverters. PetersenDean is proud to offer these two
well-trusted brands to customers,” said Jim Petersen, president and CEO
of PetersenDean Roofing & Solar. “Both of these companies’ commitment to
technology, coupled with efficient and high-quality manufacturing
processes produces solutions that exhibit the highest levels of safety,
performance, and reliability.”

Providing PetersenDean customers with intelligently managed energy
storage from reliable companies, this solution helps meet an important
goal for PetersenDean, which installs about 2,000 solar and roof systems
each month nationally.

“During the last few years, our customers have been asking us for better
home energy storage solutions. While some systems only function when the
grid goes down, others only work to help limit grid use in moments when
their solar system is not producing the amount of energy needed to power
their home. By combining SolarEdge’s StorEdge solution with LG Chem
batteries, customers can enjoy both options by managing and monitoring
PV and battery status through a single platform. It provides the peace
of mind that when the grid goes down, they’ll still have power backup,”
said Petersen.

Petersen added that customers will save substantially in the long term.
“Storage systems such as this help customers improve their system
payback by increasing the amount of PV energy they consume. They can
store excess solar and draw from it when needed. This avoids unnecessary
fees and taxes, while giving them the flexibility in an ever-changing
utility landscape.”

LG Chem is the global leader in lithium-ion batteries with a
market-leading position in advanced batteries for grid-scale,
residential storage and automotive applications. Its lithium ion battery
technology is the product of 23 years of experience in the development
and production of mobile batteries and large format batteries for
automotive and energy storage systems. For residential storage
applications, LG Chem is using the same technology that has been used in
its utility-scale projects.

Linh Tran, Sales Manager of LG Chem, said, “With the growth and
advancement of residential storage batteries, we are pleased to team up
with a leading installer, PetersenDean, specializing in new residential
and commercial construction in the US market.”

Supporting increased PV proliferation, the SolarEdge system consists of
power optimizers, inverters, smart energy management, and a cloud-based
monitoring platform. SolarEdge’s solutions address a broad range of
solar market segments, from residential solar installations to
commercial and small utility-scale solar installations.

“At SolarEdge, our mission is to lead the way in providing smart,
renewable energy for people everywhere,” stated Peter Mathews, North
America General Manager for SolarEdge. “As the largest inverter company
supplying the U.S. residential market, we’re pleased that our technology
is part of PetersenDean Roofing & Solar’s product offering. This
represents another step forward in bringing smart solar energy solutions
to consumers nationwide.”

company and known for its mission to source as many tried and true Tier
1 roofing and solar products, many of which are manufactured in the
United States. Along with Mission Solar Energy, PetersenDean’s solar
system includes Buy-American-Act-compliant panels, inverters and racking
