At the 2018 Solar Power International Conference (Sept. 25-27), LG Electronics USA Business Solutions is launching two advanced energy storage systems and an expandable battery pack for American homeowners: an AC-coupled 5.0 kW system for those who already have solar panels of any type on their homes and a DC-coupled 7.6 kW system as part of a new installation of LG solar panels.

“The new LG Electronics Energy Storage Systems create a flexible energy maintenance system for homeowners who want to take more control of their home energy use,” according to Garry Wicka, head of marketing for LG Business Solutions.

"Providing residential clients with the highest quality products and bringing added value to their homes are top priorities for LG Solar. Our new energy storage systems align with LG's leading solar solutions and allow homeowners to take more control of their energy usage with an extremely reliable and scalable system," said Wicka.

LG Energy Storage Systems work by using a "smart energy management" function to store excess energy produced from residents' solar panels for use during hours when the solar panels cannot produce energy, such as at night. This allows for less reliance on the energy grid during peak energy consumption hours when time-of-use electricity rates are often highest. In the instance of a power outage, LG ESS solutions can each store up to four hours of energy. The systems can be scaled up for more storage through pairing with an expandable battery pack, and can be easily paired with LG's award-winning solar panels, thanks to easy installation and maintenance. LG ESS models are covered by a 10-year warranty.
