Portable power provider Goal Zero will release expansion system for home backup power
Portable power product producer Goal Zero recently made an addition to its Yeti Home Energy Storage ecosystem: the Yeti Expansion System. Comprised of the Yeti Link Expansion Module and the Yeti Tank Expansion Battery, the new system allows for home backup power.
“Despite the demand from consumers, especially those who own home solar panels, affordable home energy storage has largely been unattainable due to the high costs of existing solutions on the market,” said William Harmon, general manager at Goal Zero. “With the addition of Yeti Link and Yeti Tank to the Yeti ecosystem, Goal Zero is giving consumers and solar providers a cost-effective home energy storage option that can scale based on the individual need of the user at a fraction of the typical cost.”
Yeti Link is a patent-pending expansion module for Goal Zero Yeti Lithium Power Stations that allows users to chain batteries with different chemistries, such as lead-acid and lithium, while maintaining multi-use portability with increased storage capacity. Built to work with Yeti 1000 Portable Power Stations or larger, Yeti Link plugs directly into the Yeti Power Station’s expansion ports and maintains power between the different battery chemistries.
Yeti Tank combines the reliability, durability and convenience of Goal Zero’s products with the storage capacity of home backup power. Built with cost-effective lead-acid, Yeti Tank integrates with the company’s Yeti Power Stations to charge by solar panels or a wall plug and delivers long-lasting, expandable backup energy storage for any home.
Yeti Link and Yeti Tank will be available in May 2019, either online at GoalZero.com or through approved retailers. Yeti Link is available for $399 and Yeti Tank for $399 per unit.
