The American company Savant Systems has developed a new lithium-ferrophosphate battery and inverter series.
Massachusetts-based Savant Systems has released a new home battery and inverter with a usable capacity of 18.5 kWh. The lithium ferrophosphate battery is designed to store and transmit rooftop solar energy.
The battery pack contains a 12.5 kW inverter with 120 V and 240 V voltage. The network transfer time is less than 70 milliseconds. The CEC-rated efficiency of the inverter is 93.8%.
Each battery supports 100A electrical services and backs up equipment up to 800A with up to eight units connected to a single inverter. The battery and inverter can be installed on top of each other or separately. The scalable system has 12.5 kW to 125 kW of storage, supplying 20 kWh to 200 kWh.
The battery life is 6,000 and has an estimated capacity of 75% after 10 years of use, which is also the length of the warranty. The housing is NEMA4x rated and the battery’s operating temperature is 32-113 degrees F.
The user application enables monitoring, management and automation of daily energy consumption, which promotes efficiency, lowers costs and extends the life of stored energy during pricing peaks and downtimes. Users have many selectable settings to automate the battery, including running on stored power in the event of a power outage, prioritizing energy storage before an approaching storm, and more.
“Savant Power Storage maximizes energy efficiency and can optimize clean energy, such as solar, while providing affordable power during peak periods and outages,” said Bob Madonna, CEO of Savant Systems.
The company says pricing starts at $19,500 and the battery qualifies for a 30 percent investment tax credit, Savant said. Deliveries will start in the third quarter of 2023.
