LG Energy Solution will launch a new residential energy storage system in the United States this November. The LG Energy Solution enblock S is a stackable lithium-based residential ESS that is easy to install and incorporates enhanced safety features.
Customers will have options to stack three, four or five battery module assemblies (BMAs) along with a specialized battery control unit (BCU). LG Energy Solution enblock S 10 has three BMAs and an energy capacity of 10.6 kWh; the LG Energy Solution enblock S 14 has four BMAs and 14.1 kWh; and the LG Energy Solution enblock S 17 has five BMAs and 17.7 kWh. Flexible enough to meet the variable energy needs of diverse households, the LG Energy Solution enblock S supports the parallel connection of two matching units for a maximum output of 14 kW.
To increase their energy capacity, customers only need to make additional module purchases based on their energy consumption patterns. While using the product at an initial capacity of 10 kWh, consumers can expand the battery capacity, even during its use, by purchasing extra modules with factors, such as acquiring an EV, influencing the decision.
Installation is swift and hassle-free. There are no bolts to fasten, and the connector is plug and play. Furthermore, along with the stackable design, these features should make it possible for a single installer to complete the installation in just 15 minutes. The product is available in both wall-mounted and standing configurations to meet homeowner needs, and is suitable for outdoor settings including hills and uneven terrain.
The LG Energy Solution enblock S also completed UL 9540A testing, administered by UL Solutions.
Later this year, LG Energy Solution will introduce enblock S+, enabling customers to acquire the enblock S battery in conjunction with LG Energy Solution’s new AC-coupled inverter as a bundled solution. Offered in two distinct configurations – backup and arbitrage – this retrofit option ensures easy installation and compatibility with existing PV systems. With the LG Energy Solution Monitor app, customers can track their energy consumption and production in real time.
“LG Energy Solution enblock S is a versatile, expandable, and simple to install energy storage system,” said Matthew Unverferth, Residential ESS Sales Manager with the LGES ESS Team in North America.
