EcoFlow introduces smart home solutions to address power needs in Ghana

EcoFlow, a portable power and renewable energy solutions company, will soon introduce its industry-defining portable power stations, smart solar technology, and the world’s first portable home battery with an expandable ecosystem in key West African markets.

EcoFlow was founded with a mission to empower people and communities through portable, clean, reliable power for lasting impact by dethroning the traditional gas generator through innovation.

The company’s range of renewable portable power stations offer reliable, quiet, and clean power as an alternative to traditional, outdated sources.

In an interview with the Regional Leader at Ecoflow, Joy Wu, he noted that since 2017, EcoFlow has provided portable power stations, home back up power, and eco-friendly off-grid solutions in over 100 markets including the US, Japan, China, Australia and across Europe to reinvent the way the world accesses energy.

She said “Because Dum Sor and power insecurities continue to be a critical issue for residential and businesses in Ghana, we are thrilled to introduce EcoFlow’s technology and experience building thoughtfully designed, smart and powerful energy storage products that effectively address the power needs of Ghanaians and communities around the world.”

In July 2021, the EcoFlowSmart Home Ecosystem broke the Kickstarter record for the most funded tech project on the crowdfunding platform before being named as one of TIME Magazine’s 100 best inventions of 2021.

Giving a breakdown of the products to be introduced into the country, Joy Wu said the first products from the Smart Home Ecosystem to be revealed in Ghana are RIVER Pro, DELTA and DELTA Max 1600+400W Solar Panel.

She explained that the RIVER Pro is a flexible and portable device with a quiet operation that does not run on gasoline or fuel. “Efficiency is maximized as power can be stored and consumed when needed, an AC output of  600W, a base capacity of 7240Wh expandable to 1440Wh with an extra battery and fast charging powered by EcoFlow’s X-Stream technology. No emission of toxic fumes makes the RIVER Pro safe to use both indoors and outdoors with a price 30% less than that of regular gasoline-powered inverter generators.”

Joy Wu further explained that the DELTA has been EcoFlow’s best-seller since it was launched, featuring a first-of-its-kind two-way inversion technology that converts AC to DC power and vice versa with a 6x AC Outlet. “DELTA charges safely from 0-80% in under an hour with the X-Stream Fast Charge,” She said.She added that the DELTA  Max 1600+400W Solar Panel is portable, self-supporting, and has high efficiency. It connects up to 2x 400W Max Solar charging speeds and during cold or cloudy days, the Smart Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm, automatically detects the voltage and current in real-time to provide optimum solar generation throughout the day. Joy Wu said the DELTA Max can be monitored, controlled and managed using the free EcoFlow app via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection.

“EcoFlow was developed by a multidisciplinary group of engineers who combined years of experience and expertise in the battery industry to develop new innovations in portable power Solutions. Our green technology aims to relieve users from power insecurities in Africa and around the world. At EcoFlow, we believe that access to power is a fundamental right for every human being and our vision is to put power in people’s hands,” added Joy Wu.
