3 FAQs About Home Battery Storage
ZRGP energy storage system can reduce your fuel bills and carbon emissions, especially if you already have home solar panels. Residential Energy Storage Systems offer considerable energy and cost-saving benefits such as solar battery storage， peak shifting， grid services， and battery storage backup.
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about energy storage.
1、How do batteries differ?
There are four main types of batteries namely lithium-ion, lead-acid, flow, and saltwater. Lithium-ion batteries are generally the most suitable for homeowners, as they’re lightweight, compact, and typically have a longer shelf life than other battery technologies. They also have a higher depth of discharge, meaning you can tap into more of your battery’s capacity.
All of ZRGP’s BESS, modules use lithium iron phosphate to ensure the safest, most efficient, and cleanest product to power your life.
2、What are the benefits of energy storage systems?
Coupled with your home solar system, the ZRGP PowerBase Max-X energy storage system gives you greater control over your energy usage and bills and helps you get the most from your solar investment.
- Reduce Electricity Bills
Adding an energy storage system to your home can effectively reduce the electricity bill. Installing an energy storage system will keep the total power consumption below a specified value. With on-site storage, you can charge your batteries whenever electricity rates are at their lowest (during off-peak hours or with your free solar energy).
- Maximize Self-Consumption
The energy storage system can perfectly suit commercial and residential uses. During the daytime, the system can collect and store energy, which can be used at night whenever needed. Property owners are provided with the most efficient use of solar energy at home, including grid independence, increased self-consumption, and reduced electricity bills.
- Emergency Power Backup
Don’t worry about the sudden power failure. Residential energy storage solutions integrated with solar panels can ensure energy backup. The backup power system is used to provide energy when the primary source fails for the 24/7 power supply.
3、Can I Go off-grid?
Installing battery storage in your home does not necessarily mean that you can disconnect completely from the electrical grid. While it’s possible to go off the grid, the number of solar panels and the amount of battery storage you may need to invest in could mean it’s not financially viable.
Generally speaking, going off-grid is not practical for the average urban consumer because:
- It might be difficult to store enough energy to reliably cover your use during cloudy days in winter;
- You would not be able to sell any surplus energy back to the grid;
- There are likely to be significant extra costs (e.g. special additional equipment like the installation of an air-conditioning system) for the battery.
