OutBack Energy Express Tours Puerto Rico to Assist in Recovery with Battery-Based Renewable Training


OutBack teams up with local distributors to educate and train installers on off-grid systems


Arlington, Wash. – May 2, 2018 – OutBack Power Technologies, Inc., a leader in battery based renewable energy systems, announced that its Energy Express mobile training van will be embarking on a two-week tour of Puerto Rico from May 7th to May 18th. The van will showcase renewable energy solutions, acting as a platform for off-grid and solar plus storage solution training that will carry a team of experts ready to meet and train the solar community on power solutions that are resilient, distributed and renewable.


Hurricane Maria’s devastating impact on Puerto Rico left the commonwealth’s power supply crippled, losing nearly 65% of above-ground cabling. A complete rebuild of the already aged and inefficient infrastructure is unlikely. With this in mind, OutBack has partnered with local distributors Glenn International and Warren Del Caribe to bring off-grid and battery-based solar training opportunities to the area. Offering training on these energy storage solutions will assist solar installers and others to more readily offer power solutions for entire homes and businesses – with the grid, or entirely without – enabling customers’ safety and power independence.


“This is our most important trip to Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria”, said John Webber, International Business Development Manager. “We are looking forward to sharing our 17 years of off-grid and battery-based systems knowledge with local installers. We believe this is the path to the island’s recovery and an insurance policy against the crippling impact of future weather events.”


OutBack’s training will focus on an introduction to battery-based solar power and the unique energy resiliency offered by these systems. The Energy Express tour will showcase OutBack’s complete solutions including the Radian and FXR inverters in a pre-wired package that can include traditional or advanced batteries, like nano-carbon lead acid or Simpliphi lithium batteries.


The OutBack Energy Express Tour in Puerto Rico will last from May 7th to May 18th with scheduled stops in San Juan, Ponce, and more! Visit for dates and locations.
