IBC SOLAR is now working with EATON, a global leading energy management company. Both companies are driving efficient and environmentally friendly energy management forward with this partnership. IBC SOLAR will be the German distributor for EATON’s new energy storage solution xStorage Home.
“We at EATON have already acquired 100 years’ experience in the energy management sector,” explains Martin Kram, Director Sales & Managing Director. “Our broad portfolio of electrical installation solutions is very successful on the market. The partnership with IBC SOLAR allows us to combine our experience from the energy management sector with the experience of the leading provider in the photovoltaic and energy storage systems sector.”

xStorage Home is a complete system, housed in a single unit, that integrates everything needed to manage and store energy in your home.
- Lower your electricity bills
When connected to your residential power supply and/or renewable energy sources such as solar panels, the unit can help you save money on electricity bills. It does this by charging up when renewable energy is available or energy is cheaper (i.e. during the night) and releasing that stored energy when demand and costs are high.
- Lower your CO2 footprint
By storing, consuming or even selling renewable energy back to the grid, you can contribute to the decarbonisation of the energy supply.
- Make a positive contribution to the environment: use second-life Nissan Leaf batteries
xStorage Home provides a sustainable second life for Nissan’s electric vehicle batteries after their first life in cars is over.
- No more lights out
In the event of a power shortage or outage, the unit acts as a back-up power source. Ideal at a time when our energy grids are coming under enormous and increasing strain.
- Easy to install and use
