Mercedes-Benz Home Battery
Latest update: 19 Oct 2017
With its stationary energy storage system, Mercedes-Benz now transfers its know-how for innovative energy storage solutions from the automobile industry to customers’ homes. The Mercedes-Benz Home Battery comes with a smart design and a lithium-ion battery that has an energy output of 2.5 kWh. Through the combination of up to eight battery modules, homes with higher energy needs can individually customize their energy storage by enlarging its capacity to up to 20 kWh, enough to store up solar power for times when it’s needed or to react to expensive grid prices (daily cycling). The home battery costs between $9,000 and $10,000, including the cost of the inverter and installation, and has a guaranteed lifetime of 8,000 cycles or 10 years.
