LG Chem Ltd., a global leader in lithium-ion batteries for automotive, stationary and consumer applications, has formally launched its range of award-winning residential battery systems in the North American market.
LG Chem’s North American residential battery range offers AC- and DC-coupled solutions with capacities up to 9.8 kilowatt hours (kWh). Two voltage options are available, pre-matched with compatible inverters and suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation:
- Low-voltage 48V: with capacities of 3.3, 6.5 and 9.8kWh; and,
- High-voltage 400V: with capacities of 7.0 and 9.8kWh.
The 400V RESU10H (9.8kWh) product is compatible with SolarEdge’s StorEdge, which is a DC-coupled storage solution based on a single inverter for both PV and storage. Additional inverter compatibility options will become available later in 2017 to provide homeowners with a range of pre-tested solutions from the industry’s leading suppliers.
LG Chem’s residential batteries will be available via a number of leading solar/storage providers in North America. Following last year’s announcement of a partnership with LG Chem, Sunrun – one of the leading U.S.-based residential energy system providers – will be supplying LG Chem’s RESU systems. Sunrun already has installed initial systems in both Hawaii and California.
