When your solar panels produce more electricity than you can use in your home, you can store the excess electricity in the battery system instead of sending it back into the grid. Later, when your panels aren’t producing enough electricity to meet your home’s needs, you can use the stored energy in your battery instead of having to buy it from your utility company.
There are key things to know about the JinkoSolar Suntank system. Among the most important advantages of this system is increased safety thanks to its Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (LFP) battery compared to the traditional Lithium-Ion NMC technology used in many batteries, as safety is so critical to evaluate the storage system for power generation facility. The stability of LFP chemistry and additional internal auto detecting and self-protection mechanism makes this storage system much safer.
In addition, JinkoSolar’s Suntank system made for home use also features compact size of the battery (power and capacity), enhanced depth of discharge, and roundtrip efficiency, longer life and improved reliability.
The Suntank home storage system comes in three sizes of usable capacity, all with the same power rating. You can get a Suntank system in capacities of 6 kWh or 9 kWh or 12kWh with a power rating of 5.9 kW, which is capable of powering more, bigger appliances (i.e., your HVAC system of 200V) or many appliances at once. Suntank with a higher usable capacity can store more total energy and thus can run your appliances for longer periods of time without needing to recharge.
It is backed by a 15-year, or 12,000 cycles throughput, product and performance warranties that cover the equipment in the case of faulty parts or defects, as well as the actual performance of the battery. This means that your battery is guaranteed to be able to store at least 70 percent of its initial capacity by the end of 15 years or cycling your battery 12,000 times.
The Suntank storage system is specialized to guarantee operation for down to -30 °C. With IP65 rating, the existing enclosure is optimized for extreme climate and environments, ideal for mounting in external areas.
Installing JinkoSolar’s solar-plus-storage system at your home is a great way to take control of your electricity bill, it’s a worthwhile investment.
