Canadian Solar EP Cube Achieves LUMA Certification in Puerto Rico, Reinforces Commitment to a Sustainable Future

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Aug. 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Canadian Solar announces the attainment of LUMA certification in Puerto Rico for the EP Cube, a vertically-developed residential storage system. This recognition from LUMA, the private operator managing transmission and distribution requirements of the electric grid in Puerto Rico, solidifies EP Cube’s role as a reliable contributor to the region’s energy sector. It also highlights the company’s active involvement in promoting a greener and more sustainable energy future.

EP Cube, recently introduced in Puerto Rico, brings homeowners a consistent power supply. It alleviates concerns about grid instability, including outages due to bad weather or utility blackouts. Installers love how easy it is to install the EP Cube system. Luquillo Felix Marquez, a local end-user in Puerto Rico, says, “The EP Cube offers flexible sizing from 9.9 – 19.9 kWh so I can customize the system to the need of my family. Plus, it’s fast and easy to install.”

EP Cube is available to homeowners and installers in Puerto Rico who want to take advantage of the recently announced solar incentive program from the Puerto Rico Department of Housing. The program offers grants to eligible homeowners and installers to support their installation of renewable energy.

“Earning LUMA certification is a significant achievement that reflects our unwavering commitment to a sustainable future in Puerto Rico,” says Andy Yin, the General Manager of Eternalplanet, an independent brand under Canadian Solar that designed and developed EP Cube. “We are thrilled to contribute to the region’s renewable energy transition and collaborate with partners like LUMA Energy to make a positive impact on the local energy landscape. This certification reaffirms our dedication to Puerto Rico’s energy goals and sustainability.”

The attainment of LUMA certification highlights Canadian Solar and Eternalplant’s resolute commitment to Puerto Rico’s energy landscape.
