Enphase Encharge Battery Storage

Enphase Battery Storage

Enphase battery storage powered by Nexus & Enphase, stores energy to provide the industry’s most reliable backup when the sun isn’t shining or in the event of an outage. Just like the size of your solar system, the size of your battery backup is determined by your unique energy needs and depends on the devices and appliances you want to back up. In an industry first, we are able to back up your entire home’s power! Store your energy now for when you need it most. Don’t wait until a blackout to make the switch.

Enphase’s Encharge is a rechargeable home battery system that lets you store solar energy generated during the day and use it at night or whenever you are in need, which allows you to self-power your home and reduce your reliance on the utility grid. Encharge also protects your home from a power outage with seamless and reliable backup power. Enphase unifies your solar inverters, battery and monitoring system all on a single online platform, eliminating the need for varied points of failure, varied warranties, software or customer support.  Through the Enphase Enlighten mobile app, you will have full visibility and control over your self-powered home.  The Best part about Solar + Battery with Enphase is that you get you can monitor both through one singular mobile App! We make it easy.

A self-powered home is one that runs off Enphase IQ Inverters & Enphase Encharge Battery, which gives you the ability to own your energy and reduce your reliance on the grid. With Encharge you can use more of your solar by storing the excess solar energy and using it at night, doubling the usefulness of your solar panels.  Encharge provides more reliability and product life than other top tier brands.  Encharge batteries will last 40-100% longer than its competitors with 14-20 years of estimated lifespan.

By combining an Enphase solar system and Encharge, you and your family can be fully protected. Grid-tie solar systems, when installed by themselves, are required to shut down during a utility power outage for grid safety. However, when paired with Encharge, your home solar system can continue to operate during an outage, giving potentially multiple days of backup power! The GREATEST BENEFIT of choosing Encharge as your battery solution is that you can both discharge and recharge simultaneously, allowing your home to remain powered up continually without dealing with intermittent downtime like many alternatives require during recharge.  We recommend only running essential appliances during any grid outages to attain optimum Encharge performance.

Secure your home from a power outage with reliable backup power. Encharge is able to detect a grid outage, disconnect from the grid and bring power back to your home in a fraction of a second. That is over 100x faster than typical standby generators, and fast enough to keep your appliances running without interruption. You will not have to reset your clocks or your alarm.

Our goal is to provide backup power to your entire home. However, depending on the type of appliances at your home, we may recommend an essential load backup instead of a whole home backup.

Whole Home BAckup

Your entire home is backed up by our recommended number of Encharge 10KW battery systems.  In a few cases, an upgrade to your electrical panel may be needed and we will advise you if this is the case so we can include the additional work in your order. You can also add more Encharge batteries to keep your house operational longer during an outage if your home requires more load support than normal, however, Encharge allows you to do a whole home backup in most cases with a single battery.  The less you use during a blackout, the more coverage you will have until sun-up and recharge. 

Essential Load BAckup

If your main electrical panel configuration doesn’t allow for a whole home backup, we can backup select essential loads. Since lights and outlets require less energy, a single Encharge battery will typically be sufficient and if a secondary electrical panel is required for install it will be provided by Nexus at no additional charge!  In most cases, however, we are able to offer whole-home back up with the Encharge battery.  Which option is available and is best for your specific needs will be determined at the engineering stage of your project.


The Enphase Encharge system consists of an Encharge 10KW battery and an additional supporting component called the Empower Smart Switch. Encharge and Empower are connected to your home’s main electrical panel. The Encharge System has built-in intelligence and communications, which feeds into the Enlighten monitoring app to give you full visibility into your home energy usage and demand. Depending on your choice of whole-home or partial home backup, please consult with our engineering team on what configuration may be best for your family’s needs.
