Most KIUC customers have experienced power outages over the years with some lasting over 6 hours. Even if you have a solar PV system, you’ll be in the dark unless you have battery storage. The reason the solar panels shut down when the power goes out is for safety reasons and is required by KIUC.
With one or more compact, powerful LG RESU Lithium Ion battery storage units mounted on your garage wall you will take complete control of your home power actually creating your own micro grid in case of a multiday outage like a hurricane. The LG batteries are safe around kids and pets and are rated with the highest liability on the market.
Kauai homeowners also choose battery storage to use 100% of the power their solar system generates instead of “selling” it back to the utility – called self-consumption. The solar panels charge the batteries during the day, and you use the energy stored in the batteries at night. It’s the best value you can buy for your home and you’ll be completely energy independent.
The cost of battery storage has come down a lot in the recent year and are now affordable for most homeowners and have a very short pay back. And with a 10-year warranty, you will be both energy independent and have power when the lights go out.
If you are thinking of installing a solar power system at your home, you should consider doing the batteries at the same time to get the Federal and State tax credits. If you add batteries later you won’t qualify.
