We already knew that Square D by Schneider Electric was a brand with a history of innovation and trust, but we are excited to report that their energy center was recently recognized with the 2020 Global Innovation Award from the National Association of Home Builders. The Square D Energy Center specifically won the Product of the Year award for its proficiency in home energy control and monitoring. It will be available in spring 2021.
The energy center includes “whole-home surge protection, EV connectivity, the Qwik-Connect solar inverter, a backup interface module, [and] a backup-ready panel” in the redesign of the residential electrical panel, powered by Schneider Electric’s Wiser Energy intelligence. While a Tesla and solar panels do not come with the energy center, the emphasis on adaptability and sustainability in home energy use is an asset to its innovation. Making whole-home surge protection a standard part of the energy center offers maximum protection, and we could see this technology becoming more popular, especially as the spring storm season rolls in.
Our congratulations go out to Square D for this wonderful accomplishment!
