Residential Battery Storage FAQs

A home battery system, also known as residential energy storage, is a system that stored energy for later use.

Household battery systems are usually used in conjunction with solar panels, wind turbines, or other renewable energy sources. This can assist in reducing a home’s carbon footprint and electricity bills.

Self Consumption

A typical household consumes more energy during the morning and evening times. However, a solar battery system generates the most power during the middle of the day, All the surplus energy is either wasted or sold back to the grid proving low or no value to homeowners.
iHome battery series intelligently store any surplus power generated by your solar system during the day, so that homeowners can benefit from stored clean power when needed most. Our systems can also be set to charge batteries from the grid at off-peak times when tariffs are lowest and discharge during peak times when tariffs are more expensive.

Off and On Grid Back-up Power

With the number of power outages caused by extreme weather events or grid-related stability events, restoring the grid can take days or weeks in some cases.
A residential backup system can provide emergency backup power to protect your household from daily life disruptions, especially when coupled with rooftop solar power systems that store excess solar power. Whether to back up your essential loads only or all your household electrical appliances.

Household solar batteries capture and store excess energy generated by solar panels on the roof of the home with direct sunlight to use during peak periods or throughout the evenings.

Home battery storage systems are designed to last for many years, providing you with a reliable source of backup power. However, the length of time that your battery system will last will depend on a number of factors, including how often you use it and how well you maintain it. With proper care and maintenance, your residential energy storage system could last for decades.

The size of the battery bank you’ll need to power your home will depend on a number of factors, including the appliances and devices you want to run and the amount of backup power you want to have available.

To get an estimate of the size of the battery bank you’ll need, start by calculating your home’s daily energy usage. Then, add up the wattage of the appliances and devices you want to be able to run during a power outage.

Once you have your total daily energy usage, multiply that number by the number of days you want to be able to go without power. This will give you a rough estimate of the size of the battery bank you’ll need.
