5 Benefits of the LG RESU Prime Battery

Solar battery storage is becoming more popular with homeowners looking for a reliable, affordable, and clean source of energy for their home that’s available 24/7, rain or shine. And as utilities begin to steer away from customer-friendly programs like net metering, which may have incentivized sending excess energy back into the grid, implement time-of-use rates, or demand charges, people are turning to the latest battery technology that keeps your energy right where you need it, for whenever you need it. 

The latest solar battery to get our stamp of approval is the LG RESU Prime. The battery comes in two sizes: 10h and 16h. We are the only installers in Northern California offering this state-of-the-art technology for rooftop solar customers. LG Energy Solution Batteries are designed for any home solar system and connect directly to storage-ready solar inverters for charging and discharging. We’ve installed this specific solar battery on countless homes, and here are 5 reasons why you should consider incorporating this storage solution into your solar system investment. 

1. A Battery for All

This solar battery plays well with all solar panel systems, giving you the ability to maintain a sustained power supply all day, every day, as long as you’ve stored enough energy from your panels when the sun is out. The RESU Prime keeps your solar power where you need it, storing it instead of sending it back out to the power grid. That means you can rely less on the grid, and pay less for the energy you’re using.

2. Size & Safety Matters

The size of the battery is a great fit for nearly all our customers in Northern California. It’s compact, easy to install, and gets high marks for safety within the home.

3. The Latest Technology

Technically speaking, this battery boasts a max power rating of 5 kW per 9.3 kWh of usable capacity. And while it is a lithium-ion storage option, it’s important to note that it’s a lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) battery. NMCs are known for having a high energy density, storing a lot of energy compared to the space they take up, and it’s safer, too.

4. Add As You Go Capabilities

It’s modular, so you can start with one RESU Prime battery and add another along the way to grow your storage capacity as your needs and/or budget changes.

5. The Warranty

The RESU Prime warranty period is 10 years or 22.4 MWh energy throughput with a guaranteed end of warranty capacity: 60% and a throughput warranty: 22.4 megawatt-hours (MWh). That means you can expect to use your battery for at least 10 years if not more with minimal maintenance.
