Enphase Energy has recently introduced its latest residential battery, the IQ Battery 5P, which is its most powerful home battery available to date. This new Enphase battery system is now accessible to customers residing in the United States and Puerto Rico. The IQ Battery 5P stands out due to its modular design, allowing homeowners to customize their energy storage capacity as per their requirements. The starting capacity of the new Enphase battery is 5kwh which can reach up to 80kWh in battery capacity. This battery can fulfill the power demands of most households by providing a continuous power output of 3.84 kW and a peak power capacity of 7.68 kW for three seconds.
Moreover, this new Enphase Energy System includes the IQ Battery 5P, IQ System Controller 3/3G, and IQ Combiner 5/5C. These components bring significant enhancements for both homeowners and installers. Improvements such as increased power output, more reliable wired communication, and an improved setup process are available to many consumers. Notably, the IQ Battery 5P comes with a 15-year limited warranty specifically for customers in the United States and Puerto Rico.
The new Enphase battery System offers various configurations in order to fulfill the needs of the customer. These needs may include self-consumption, savings, or complete backup functionality. In California, the Enphase system is specifically designed to align with the state’s updated solar regulations (NEM 3.0). Hence allowing Californians to maximize the value of their solar energy by facilitating self-consumption and exporting excess energy to the grid station.
New Enphase Battery for Grid-tied Systems:
For grid-tied systems, the new Enphase battery offers a configuration option without backup capabilities. In this setup, the IQ System Controller is not included, which helps homeowners reduce upfront costs and achieve a faster return on investment. However, homeowners have the flexibility to add an IQ System Controller at any time to enable backup functionality. In California, installers can utilize Enphase’s Solargraf platform to design and generate system proposals that optimize for NEM 3.0. This ensures the system can offset the electricity bill completely and provide the most favorable payback period to the consumers. Thus, delivering optimal benefits to homeowners in terms of energy savings.
The new Enphase battery solution prioritizes safety by eliminating the exposure of installers and homeowners to high-voltage direct current (DC). The IQ Batteries from Enphase utilize Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) battery chemistry. Enphase battery solution can ensure a longer life cycle and safer operation due to its exceptional thermal stability. With this technology, Enphase makes sure that the solar and battery system operates in a secure and reliable manner. Hence, minimizing the potential risks and delivering peace of mind to both installers and homeowners.
