Optimized Energy Solution for the Environmentally Conscious Consumer
More and more electricity consumers are becoming environmentally conscious and they are taking active steps towards renewable energy. This has led to a growth in individual consumers investing in their own Energy Storage Systems (ESS) in order to take advantage of renewable energy at times when the sun is not shining. Below is a story of Stephen, who is one such consumer.
“I need a solution that would meet my energy needs while also being environmentally friendly and cost-efficient.”
Stephen Young in New South Wales, Australia, who is very concerned about reducing his carbon footprint, wanted to find technologies available to store his excess solar energy for use at night and on cloudy days. He had solar panels installed on his rooftop in 2016, and after talking with his installer and distributor, had energy monitoring software installed at his home as well, looking to also include an energy storage system that would complement his solar system. He belived that it would be a good way to show his leadership and dedication to the cause of transiting to renewable energy.
After researching alternative energy solutions, he initially considered a brand which was highly publicized. However, the size was too large to install at his home and it was not compatible with the software he was trying to use. Moreover, he never received a quote from the company. Amidst this process, his installer recommended LG Chem as a reputable company with a battery that could be used immediately with his energy monitoring software (Reposit), and he received a quote shortly after his request.
Finally, after discussions with his installer, he decided to install the LG Chem RESU10H (9.8 kWh) battery on an outer wall of his home in Thirroul, NSW, in April 2017.
