LG Electronics Energy Storage System (ESS) With Expandable Battery Pack
LG Electronics’ new energy storage system creates a flexible energy management solution for homeowners wanting a more energy-efficient and greener home environment. LG’s ESS features an integrated smart energy management system (EMS) that enables customers to control their electricity bill through self-consumption of solar and time-of-use rate smart scheduling. This allows for less reliance on the energy grid during peak energy consumption hours, when time-of-use electricity rates are often highest.
The system also includes an off-grid mode in the event of a power outage. In that case, LG ESS can each store up to six hours of energy. The system can also be scaled up for more storage through pairing with an expandable battery pack and is covered by a 10-year warranty. What’s more, LG’s mobile app, EnerVu, enables the homeowner to monitor the system’s energy flow even while on the go.
LG ESS are compatible with virtually all solar-powered homes. The product is available in an AC-coupled 5.0-kW system for homeowners who already have solar panels of any type on their homes, and a DC-coupled 7.6-kW system as part of a new installation of LG solar panels.
