Energy Storage System Buyer’s Guide 2022

electric neon sign ESS guide

Energy storage systems (ESS) are increasingly being paired with solar PV arrays to optimize use of the generated energy. ESS, in turn, is getting savvier and feature-rich. Batteries can be smartly deployed to maximize ROI. They can charge and discharge batteries more quickly and efficiently. And they can allow for oversized PV arrays to better meet the needs of customers from small, off-grid homes to larger, grid-tied microgrids. We asked ESS and charge controller suppliers to tell us about their latest system, what applications it is for and why you should consider it for your next project. You’ll also find links back to our Battery Buyer’s Guide to learn more about batteries that pair best with each system.
