How much energy storage do you need?
Figuring out how many batteries you need can be overwhelming. If you don’t have enough battery capacity, you run out of power and need to fire up the backup generator. So it’s important to know the storage capacity you require.
The amount of battery storage you need is based on your energy usage. Energy usage is measured in kilowatt hours over a period of time.
