LG, A RELIABLE AND TRUSTED BRAND IN SOLAR BATTERIES

Solarpro has various solar storage solutions to suit different needs and budgets. One of the best solar battery options on the market is the LG RESU Prime series. These batteries have industry-leading continuous power levels and are DC coupled which makes them more energy efficient than AC coupled batteries. They come in 10kWh and 16 kWh sizes.

There are low and high voltage models available. Compact and relatively lightweight, they sit on the ground. They are also compatible with the SolarEdge Energy Hub inverter which means you get a sophisticated all-round system if you after a quality solar and battery bundle.

ABOUT LG ENERGY SOLUTION

LG has more experience than any other home battery company in the industry. The battery division of LG, was established in the 1940s.  Called  originally LG Chem, and recently rebranded as LG Energy Solution it is an integrated battery manufacturer with strong research and development capabilities and an excellent reputation.

LG Energy Solution  has become one of the world’s leading battery suppliers for innovative battery technology to power Australian homes. They are a sister company of LG Electronics and have been in Australia for more than 5 years, with a local head office and after sales team support based in Melbourne.

Their batteries are also used in many well known new EV vehicles such as GM and VW. LG is a stable company that puts safety and quality at the forefront of every product it makes.

BACK-UP POWER SOLUTION

It is often assumed that when a battery is being installed with a solar system the battery will keep supplying energy to the home if the grid shuts down. This is not always correct. In fact, many battery systems will leave you in the dark, if a special back up unit is not included in the initial design. When the LG RESU is connected to the SolarEdge back-up circuit, it is one of the best batteries that will continue to charge from the solar panels if the grid shuts down. So if the grid is down for a few days, as long as your consumption at night does not go over the top, you can stay in power and back up for a long time – literally operating “off-grid”.

SOPHISTICATED MONITORING

With an LG solar battery plus SolarEdge inverter combination, you require only one SolarEdge monitoring application for all the monitoring of individual solar panels, solar generation, battery storage, home energy consumption and energy export. This way you can keep tabs on your usage. The LG battery/SolarEdge combination can be installed on a single or three phase house.

FAQs

What is the difference between AC and DC coupled batteries?

An important thing to know when considering a battery is that there is no such thing as an AC (alternating current) battery. All batteries are DC (direct current). Each time electricity is converted from DC-AC or vice versa there are energy losses. These losses are around 5% for each conversion. With a DC coupled solution there is only a single conversion. With an AC coupled solution there are three conversions. So a DC coupled battery is more energy efficient.
