Does Home Energy Storage Make Sense?
Residential battery storage is a huge topic right now. In this course we unpack storage for homes, and explain why you may or may not want to install it.
Today we're going to talk about: Energy Storage as it relates to residential buildings. Of course, everyone is welcome, but we've intended this course to be directed to the homeowner, or soon-to-be homeowner, that has been wondering if they should install batteries with their solar array.
If you're a contractor, there's still a lot of good stuff in here for you.
If you manage a large commercial/industrial facility, this might not be the right course for you. I recommend one of our other courses, "Battery Chemistries - How to select & size for your C&I facility".
- Know the most common uses of homes storage
- Understand the pros and cons of each use
- Understand how to effectively design and correctly size batteries for your home
This course earns you 1 credit toward your NABCEP continuing education requirements for Job Task Analysis (JTA) & RE Elective.
