Enphase Energy has announced the launch of its most powerful home battery to date, the IQ Battery 5P, for customers in the US and Puerto Rico. The IQ Battery 5P is modular in design and can deliver 3.84kW of continuous power and 7.68kW of peak power in three seconds, offering homeowners the ability to start and run their most energy-demanding appliances during a power outage.
The new Enphase battery operates at 5 kWh and can be configured up to 80 kWh. Enphase Energy System’s third-generation components include the IQ Battery 5P, IQ System Controller 3/3G and IQ Combiner 5/5C, all of which offer a significantly improved experience for homeowners and installers as a result of more power, flexible wiring and improved : operating experience. The IQ Battery 5P also has a 15-year limited warranty in the US and Puerto Rico.
The Enphase Energy System with IQ Battery 5P can be configured for self-depletion, savings or full backup functions. For California customers, the Enphase system is optimized to support California’s new solar rules (NEM 3.0), enabling self-consumption and power export at appropriate times to generate maximum value.
The IQ Battery 5P can be configured without backup capabilities for networked systems. This new setup will come without the IQ System Controller, minimizing overall system components so homeowners can lower upfront costs and get a faster return on their investment. An IQ System Controller can be added at any time to provide backup functionality. California installers can also use Enphase’s Solargraf platform to design and build system offerings that optimize NEM 3.0 and deliver the best utility bill reimbursement and return.
Enphase provides a safe solar and battery solution that does not expose installers or homeowners to high voltage direct current (DC). Enphase’s IQ batteries feature Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) battery chemistry that provides long cycle life and safe operation through excellent thermal stability.
“The IQ Battery 5P is an integral part of our product offerings because quality and innovation are part of our DNA at Enphase,” said Mehran Sedigh, vice president and general manager of Enphase Energy’s storage business unit. “We are excited to bring this new technology to the United States and Puerto Rico through our network of world-class installers. Together, we will create a superior customer experience by providing clean, reliable energy.”
Distributors in the US and Puerto Rico can order the IQ Battery 5P starting today, with production shipments expected to begin in the third quarter of 2023.
