Fortress Power is a lithium battery manufacturer based outside of Philadelphia that focuses on helping solar installers use the safest and most reliable energy storage for their projects. The company provides three different size models for energy storage projects — its LFP-5 kWh, LFP-10 kWh, and eVault 18.5 kWh system. Fortress Power Lithium Iron Phosphate energy storage systems can be easily integrated into new or existing PV systems.
From residential to commercial projects, Fortress has the ability to stack to 222 kWh storage capacity and utilize local monitoring through its user-friendly LCD display that presents the complete details of your storage system.
Connecting the Fortress battery to your inverter is as simple as plug and play; and if you are looking to try different applications, Fortress provides off-grid, time-of-use, grid-export and self-use applications.
Lithium Iron Phosphate technology is the safest option for energy storage applications because, unlike Nickel Magnesium Cobalt (NMC) batteries, it is designed with exceptional thermal stability that prevents it from catching on fire and also removes the need for cooling and ventilation. Lithium Iron Phosphate also delivers more than 6,000 cycles, which is twice as much as NMC technology.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
