LG Chem RESU16H: More Power, More Savings


The LG Chem RESU16H is one of the most powerful and energy efficient battery systems on the market. Over the last couple of years demand has grown rapidly for larger, more powerful battery systems. These batteries will complement the movement towards all-electric homes and electric vehicles

The Nitty Gritty of the LG Chem RESU16H

One area where the older range of LG batteries had limitations was its maximum power output. These older models had a fixed output of 5kW continuous and 7kW peak (RESU10), even after combining two batteries.

The new RESU battery from LG Chem addressed these limitations with a much greater 16kWh storage capacity and higher continuous power rating of 7kW. However, the most significant boost is in regard to peak power. This has increased to an impressive 11kW. The larger peak power rating means the backup loads on a typical household can now include high-surge power appliances like pumps and air-conditioners. 

While having a more powerful battery can make a huge difference, homeowners still have to keep in mind that their inverter also comes into play. You must have an inverter that can support the increase in output and high-surge power, otherwise, you will not see much of a difference. 


The LG Chem RESU16H Lithium Ion 16kWh Solar Battery Storage is part of the announced third-generation battery system. LG recently released their RESU 16H energy storage system, and only certain distributors currently have access to it.

Where Can I Buy an LG CHEM RESU16H?

Currently, getting your hands on one of these incredible high-powered batteries can prove a bit of a challenge. As this product remains very new to the market, only a select number of approved vendors have access to the battery.

Luckily for you, NRG Clean Power is one of those vendors.

Benefits of a Home Backup Battery

Before deciding to get the new LG Chem RESU16h, first you need to understand the importance of home battery backups. 

With a home battery, in the event of a power failure, the system automatically switches from the grid. It will then start to draw power from the backup battery system. If the power fails, your backup system can step in and supply power until your utility restores the main system. The more powerful the battery, the more appliances you can run with during an outage. If you opt for a battery like the Gen3 LG then you can ensure a significant increase in functionality of your home and home appliances during outages and blackouts.  

When you connect your home battery to a solar system, it will refill as soon as the sun comes out. This allows you to use every last drop of sunlight to power your home. With a battery backup, you can enjoy all the benefits of a grid-connected solar system while still having power in the event of power outages. Perhaps the best part—you still have the same reliability with the home battery backup as with a full-fledged power system.
