Smart home energy company dcbel has partnered with renowned lithium-ion battery maker LG Energy Solution to co-market an integrated home solution.
“For the first time, homebuilders can provide their customers with a tailored set of blackout power options that combine electricity storage with local photovoltaic (PV) generation and vehicle charging/discharging. electricity, all of which can be incorporated into construction at the project stage,” said Dan Fletcher, Ecosystems Manager at dcbel.
LG Energy Solution’s RESU Prime will be offered as a stationary battery for the dcbel partnership, available in two sizes.
- The RESU16H Prime is one of the largest home batteries, providing 16kWh of usable power and can be scaled up to 32kWh.
- The RESU 10H Prime offers 9.6 kWh to back up critical loads during peak hours and emergencies.
The dcbel r16 home energy station automatically harnesses the stationary battery to power the whole house, reducing a home’s energy costs and carbon footprint. dcbel r16 integrates a hybrid solar inverter with a two-way EV charger, which the company claims can replace six different pieces of equipment in an equivalent system designed on the conventional path. This reduces costs, required wall space and simplifies the installation as a whole.
“With storage playing an important role in the next generation of residential solar power, homebuilders and consumers are looking for new integrated solutions. dcbel’s r16 Home Energy Station brings unparalleled power and flexibility to home energy management, and our state-of-the-art RESU batteries are perfectly suited for this application,” said Ryan Simpson, Sales Manager of the LG Energy Solution ESS team in North America.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton of video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power forward! — a collaboration with BayWa re to discuss high-level industry topics as well as best practices/trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer side project is Field — in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technologies and ideas so you don’t have to. We discuss everything from residential trackless bridge fixing and home solar energy financing to large scale energy storage value stacking and new solar and home storage microgrids driven by the public services.
