Hello! We’re Schoenherr Solar, your go-to solar roofing company, proudly serving the Greater Detroit Metro from our office in Romeo, Michigan. We understand that a roof does more than just protect you from the elements; it’s also an incredible platform to generate clean, green energy.
But what happens when the sun isn’t shining? Enter the Home Battery Systems.
As the sun starts to set and your solar panels stop generating power, you no longer have to rely on the traditional grid. Not when you have a Home Battery System installed. But what exactly is a Home Battery System?
Simply put, it’s your personal energy reservoir. It stores excess energy produced by your solar panels during the day, saving it for use later in the evening, overnight, or during a power outage.
Traditional solar systems, also known as grid-tied solar systems, are connected directly to the local power grid. They generate electricity during the day, which can either be consumed immediately by the household or sent back to the grid. During the night, or when the solar panels don’t produce enough electricity to meet your needs, you draw power from the grid.
While a grid-tied solar system is a fantastic way to offset your electricity usage and reduce your energy bill, it does have one significant limitation. During a power outage, for safety reasons, your solar system is automatically turned off, which means you can’t use the electricity your panels generate.
On the other hand, a solar + battery system, like the Home Battery Systems we provide, offers all the benefits of a grid-tied solar system, plus the ability to store excess energy for later use. Instead of sending extra power back to the grid, you store it in your battery for use when needed – whether at night, during peak rate periods, or even during power outages.
The Home Battery System gives you greater energy independence and resilience. Even in the event of a power outage, your system continues to work, supplying your home with the stored energy, ensuring you’re never left in the dark.
A Home Battery System works in harmony with your solar panels. It consists of advanced lithium-ion batteries, a battery inverter, and an intelligent software system that manages the flow of electricity.
During the day, your solar panels generate electricity. This electricity is first used to power your home. If your solar panels produce more electricity than you need, the excess energy is stored in the battery instead of being sent back to the grid.
The battery inverter plays a critical role in this process. It converts the direct current (DC) electricity from your solar panels and battery into alternating current (AC) electricity that your home can use.
When your solar panels aren’t producing electricity, the battery system supplies power to your home. It sends the stored DC power back through the inverter to be converted into usable AC electricity.
The smart software system manages the entire process, ensuring that the flow of electricity is efficient and optimized to your usage and production patterns.
In essence, a Home Battery System allows you to make the most out of your solar panels, supplying you with clean, renewable energy around the clock, no matter what the grid is doing. It’s truly the way to gain full control over your home’s energy.
Chemistry: Many manufacturers choose to use status quo equipment. By using LFP (lithium iron phosphate) we’ve picked the right chemistry for the job. LFP is safer and lasts longer than other battery chemistries in a stationary storage market.
Specifications: With one unit having nearly 15 kW of continuous power and a 24 kW surge, this system can handle the needs of an entire home or business… air conditioning and water pumps included. We can pair up to 15 Stacks in parallel for an unprecedented amount of power and capacity.
Modularity: Each white battery module is 4.8 kWh and each Stack can support 2-8 modules. This Lego-like form factor means a <30 min installation, and it’s the easiest battery to upgrade in the future. No wiring between modules, and no conduit/wiring needed when it comes time to upgrade.
Power outages? What power outages? With a Home Battery System, your home stays powered, come rain or shine.
As if reducing your reliance on the traditional power grid wasn't enough, you'll also see a noticeable dip in your energy bills.
With a Home Battery System, you'll maximize the energy you draw from your solar panels, thereby reducing your carbon footprint even further.
Save more by using your stored solar energy during peak electricity rates, thus evading high costs and contributing to a healthier grid.
A home equipped with a solar roofing system and a Home Battery System is a modern, energy-efficient home. Such homes are desirable in the real estate market, boosting your property value.
We’ve been serving the Greater Detroit Metro for years, delivering top-notch solar solutions, and we’re excited to provide Home Battery Systems as well.
