For a variety of reasons, home battery storage systems have become increasingly popular in the last few years. More and more people are realizing that the grid isn't always stable, which is why more and more individuals are turning to solar power. "Energy independence is one of the main reasons individuals install home battery storage systems," says Gerbrand Ceder, a professor at UC Berkeley and faculty staff scientist at Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory. "It's smooth, so switching from the grid to your battery backup system isn't even noticeable."
A wide range of battery sizes and types for home energy storage have been available for many years. Modern lithium battery systems swiftly overtook traditional lead-acid battery systems as manufacturers developed clever, modular systems to suit many energy storage applications as lithium technology improved rapidly.
The benefits and cons of home batteries are discussed in this article for individuals who are new to solar power. If you're interested in learning more about the various types of solar systems, including grid-tie, off-grid, hybrid, and other battery options, check out our post on lithium vs. lead-acid battery options.
