SolPad residential solar panels come with built-in battery storage and an inverter

SolPad residential solar panels come with built-in battery storage and an inverter

SunCulture Solar plans to offer a series of products built on the SolPad solar panel, including a more portable panel that can be easily plugged into an outdoor outlet on a house, and the SolPad Home, which is designed to function as a rooftop solar panel. Drawing on “forthcoming solid-state battery technology ,” the panels can store energy from the sun and the grid. SunCulture says their battery technology is “inherently safer than standard lithium-ion-based batteries,” has a longer lifespan, and has a “broader operating temperature range” than other batteries. SunCulture designed a “flexgrid inverter for the panels” that can switch between grid and solar power depending on weather or electricity rates.
