FOR HOME

There is no one-size-fits-all. It depends on your current consumption and what you want to achieve from your system. We will help you every step of the way to make the right decision.

The table below describes the power consumption of a family of four in a large home during peak evening activity. The family is preparing dinner, watching TV and using their computers. The lights are on and their home security system, fridge and freezer are all active.

Based on these and other common activities, the Solar MD SS4074 7.4kWh battery system would provide for all their critical and discretionary loads for a full 3 hours. That means they could comfortably endure a load shedding outage during peak hours with no disruption to their normal routine.
