What Is a Battery System?

A battery system is an integrated system consisting of:

  • Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries
  • An inverter to convert stored DC energy into usable AC
  • The software to manage it.

It stores energy from the grid or a renewable source and releases it on demand. Most battery systems are Wi-Fi capable and can be monitored and controlled from an app for optimal energy savings. Essentially, it's a big ol' smart battery. Very smart.

Benefits of a Battery System

  • It reduces electricity bills.
  • It provides backup power in case of grid failure.
  • It eliminates the need for noisy and polluting backup generators.
  • It lets you participate in net metering programs (details to come).
  • It stores solar energy for use at night or during bad weather.
  • It monitors energy use with intelligent systems.
  • It helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

A quality battery system provides 12 to 15 hours of energy for an average home. It will last up to 20 years before needing replacement — or about twice as long as your dryer.

What is Net Metering?

A battery system stores solar and cheap grid energy, which can help you take advantage of power companies' network metering programs. Net metering lets you send excess energy back into the grid during peak demand times to sell power to the power company at premium rates! The "sale" appears as a credit on your power bill.
