Batteries have been around for over a hundred years, but due to cost and unreliability issues, it wasn’t seen as a practical way for most businesses to incorporate into their energy systems.
With advances in technology, the continued rising cost of electricity, and the advent of climate change, energy storage may be the next big game-changer in energy.
WHICH IS THE RIGHT BATTERY FOR ME?
The choices in energy storage systems have increased dramatically in the past few years. In order to offer better informed choices to our customers, we did our homework. We studied the specs of the systems, asked the tough questions (often, questions most people wouldn’t even think about asking) and even ordered and tested a few of them out ourselves.
In the end, we whittled it down to what we believe are the best products in the market today.
The energy storage products we carry run the gamut from small one-room units, to systems that can be scaled to power hotels and condos. Criteria of products were based on reliability, safety, simplicity of integration and overall cost.
The products we feel that are best on the market are Sunverge, Aquion and Sonnen. We also have high hopes for Enphase, which is currently in beta testing.
