LG Energy Solution (previously LG Chem) has announced plans to launch a new home battery in the first quar of 2023. The new planned addition to the product lineup of home batteries will offer a capacity of 10.6 to 35.4 kWh, depending on the number of battery modules installed. Specifically, a single storage system with three modules delivers 10.6 kWh, which can be expanded up to five modules to offer a capacity of 17.7 kWh. The maximum capacity of 35.4 kWh can be achieved by installing two systems with five modules per system. “The scalability has never been simpler. By adding modules at any point after the installation, homeowners can scale up their energy storage systems simply and efficiently with minimal effort,” said Ryan Simpson, Sales Director of LG Energy Solution ESS Team in North America. The new battery should require only a few minutes of input by one installer, thanks to the use of boltless structure and plug-and-play connectors. The RESU battery series from LG Energy Solution is separate from the new Home 8 battery from LG Electronics.
