6 Questions to Ask When Choosing Battery Storage for Your Solar Power System Choosing the right lithium battery storage solution for your solar power system has never been more important. More frequent, intense storms have led to more power outages, which means you rely on backup power more than ever. In states where you can’t sell excess energy back to the grid, you need to be able to store that energy and use it to power your home. In states like California
Over 90% of newly installed energy storage worldwide are paired with Lithium batteries, even though the cost of the lithium batteries is much higher than the that of Lead Acid batteries. Why do developers, investors and utilities prefer Lithium over Lead Acid. The answer is simple, it delivers much more cycles and it costs substantially less over its life span. Our engineers have studies and tested Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP or LiFePO4), Lithium Ion (Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt) and Lithium Polymer (LiPo),
Greg & his family live in a remote location in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. Living on top of a mountain in a secluded location comes with a host of benefits, but the family encountered one major drawback as they prepared the site to build their home: the closest grid power was a mile away.
At Fortress Power, we love seeing installations of our batteries in places across the US and across the globe. However, it’s also exciting to see the batteries at work right in our own backyard. Fortress Power recently teamed up with Bucks County, PA solar installer, Moore Energy, on a project in the beautiful borough of Doylestown.
Solar batteries can make the difference between having and not having power during the harsh weather. In recent years, climate change has led to an increase in weather-related disasters. Millions of people across the globe have been affected by extreme weather conditions such as heat waves, heavy downpours, severe floods and droughts, increased wildfire activity and rising sea levels. These extreme weather events often result in power outages, leading homeowners to find ways to protect against blackouts, such as solar or photovoltaic (PV) systems.
