The Centauri Energy Server is a fully-integrated electronics and software platform that can operate as a stand-alone device or integrate into any system through its innovative plug-and-play functionality. Centauri, developed by Kilowatt Labs, can service any load profile (kW to MW) with or without grid access or generator availability.
Centauri is an all-in-one solution that replaces systems comprised of multiple components including PV inverters, charge controllers, battery inverters, communication software and hardware, safety devices, and more.
