Comparing the Top Home Battery Storage Technologies (2020)

Battery storage is the fastest growing market segment in solar, creating new markets as well as solar retrofit expansion opportunities across the USA for renewable projects large and small. Batteries allow the solar array to maximize savings on the electric bill and provide backup power during grid outages. Every offgrid solar array includes a battery, but an increasing number of grid-tied customers find them valuable as well. Energy independence has never been easier to achieve – even when the home

Battery Safety Concerns Can Be Addressed with Proper Design and Manufacturing

Early in December, LG Chem recalled several residential solar battery storage products because of concerns about fire safety. Five fires involving these battery systems have been reported, including an explosion at an energy storage facility in Arizona caused several injuries. According to the recall notice, cells inside the battery units are at risk of overheating and starting fires. This recall comes on the heels of several fires involving Tesla solar products. More and more homeowners are requesting battery backup solutions

Why Fortress Power Created the Bigger, Better 18.5kWh eVault Solar Battery

Smaller batteries in the 2.5-10kWh range don’t have the capacity to power a large number of loads in a residential home for a long period of time. Many of these batteries were designed for small, off-grid applications. Simply put, you can’t use a golf cart battery to power a house. Before the Fortress Power eVault came along, you would have to install two or three smaller batteries. That means multiple batteries needed to be wired together and connected to the battery

Why Closed-Loop Communication Is a Game Changer for Solar Battery Storage

At the height of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown, demand for solar battery storage continued to soar. According to the recent Energy Storage Monitor report, 48.7 MW and 112 MWh of storage capacity were installed in Q2, up 10 percent from Q1. This was the second-best quarter in history, even though the number of residential solar deployments dropped during the same time period. There is no denying the fact that more people than ever are adding batteries to their homes to
