According to San Diego–based NeoVolta, California’s grid is aging and susceptible to massive safety shutdowns during wildfire season. It’s also vulnerable to physical sabotage or a foreign cyberattack. The solution for many homeowners is to combine their rooftop solar panels with an energy storage system that saves self-generated power for later use. Energy security is one reason Bloomberg research predicted that home solar battery sales across the state would more than quadruple in 2020.
According to a company press release, for California homeowners, one of the most powerful residential storage systems on the market comes from NeoVolta. Its NV14 battery system has a higher capacity (14.4 kilowatt-hours) and discharges more power (7.7 kilowatts) than most competitors in its class. The NV14’s high capacity can be further expanded to 24.0 kWh by pairing it with the NV24 add-on—without the expense of installing a second inverter. This combination represents one of the highest-capacity home solar storage systems on the market.
The NV14 was recently named one of Solar Power World’s “2019 Top Solar Storage Products” for its high capacity, expandability, and safer, longer-lasting lithium iron phosphate battery. NeoVolta storage systems have been approved by San Diego Gas & Electric and Southern California Edison and are being installed in homes across Southern California. Installations in Northern California are expected to begin in mid-2020.
“We know the electric grid is vulnerable, and backup power needs to be part of any home emergency plan,” said NeoVolta CEO Brent Willson. “Don’t wait until it’s too late. NeoVolta’s NV14/NV24 solar energy storage system is a smart investment for every California household. Homeowners can enjoy significant savings on their monthly utility bill, while enjoying the peace of mind that comes with energy security.”
NeoVolta designs, develops and manufactures utility-bill reducing residential energy storage batteries capable of powering your home even when the grid goes down. With a focus on safer lithium-iron phosphate chemistry, the NV14 is equipped with a solar rechargeable 14.4 kWh battery, a 7,680-Watt inverter and a web-based energy management system with 24/7 monitoring.
