Home Battery Systems

Most people know about the Tesla PowerWall. While I don’t remember the name, BYD has a similar product. These units add battery storage and, optionally, PV solar to home electrical systems.

Both are primarily for “professional installation”. Signature Solar (mentioned in a previous post) offers a similar type of system for the do-it-yourself set but what they offer is more like a “mix and match” to get what you want. (This is not bad, I have a system installed in my home right now and another one that will be installed in my daughter’s business. But, they require some thought.)

Well, I just got a message about a KiloVault Uniti system from AltE Store, a place where I have bought off-grid components over the years. What’s different in the KiloVault is a self-contained system similar to the PowerWall but designed for the do-it-yourselfer. It’s nice to see such a system becoming available. I am sure it won’t be the last.
