Why You Might Consider a Battery
If you experience a power outage that appears like it will last for a long time, you will require backup power from a battery system or battery backup unit.
You may use an air-cooled home generator powered by gasoline or propane to keep your lights on for a few hours, or you can invest in a much more expensive liquid-cooled generator that will keep your lights on for much longer.
However, if power outages are common in your area, you might want to consider installing a set of backup batteries to provide you with electricity while you’re not connected to the grid.
Paired with solar, a home backup battery can be recharged during the day off your solar system and drawn down upon in the evening. This maximizes the savings and energy produced off your solar system.
Three 3.0 kWh Lithium Ion battery modules in the Generac PWRcell system give 9kWh of storage capacity. An inverter and a battery storage cabinet are part of the system.
Because the PWRcell is compatible with solar panels from a wide range of manufacturers, there is no vendor lock-in. Because of its modular construction, you can expand your storage capacity in 3kWh increments up to 36kWh. It comes with a ten-year limited warranty and can be controlled and monitored via an app.
Enphase IQ Battery
The Enphase IQ Battery 10T has a 10.5kWh capacity and a max output of 5.76KVA.
It’s made up of three Encharge 3T storage units as a starting point. Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (LFP) batteries are used in this device, which has a power rating of 3.84 KW.
There are no moving components or fans since it cools by itself. The system comes with a ten-year limited warranty and a mobile app for monitoring and controlling it. This battery storage system necessitates professional installation.
