With more and more solar users expanding their systems to include energy storage, solar batteries have become a considerable part of the solar industry in recent years. Most big names in the solar industry also manufacture their batteries. However, they have to compete with specific companies that specialize in battery storage, such as BYD. BYD solar batteries have quickly become a top choice among solar users. Why? Keep reading to learn a few of the benefits of this battery type.

In solar power, “stackability” refers to the ability to connect multiple battery units to increase power storage or voltage. In the case of BYD batteries, however, they are quite stackable. The battery modules are designed to stack, one on top of the other, in a convenient tower that makes storage simple, easy, and organized. Users don’t have to worry about exposed cords or lining up batteries on shelves in their garage. The BYD battery tower can be tucked into a corner near the inverter, keeping your space neat and tidy.
The traditional definition of “stackability” and “scalability” are closely related. Scalable equipment allows users to expand their battery storage over time, if needed, to accommodate changing power needs. If a battery system is stackable, it is typically entirely scalable as well. The BYD battery system is easily scalable, with all models offering the ability to increase storage capacity significantly by simply connecting additional battery modules.
Since high-voltage hybrid inverters were first developed, the solar battery industry has shifted to prioritizing high-voltage batteries that are compatible with these inverters. BYD excels at this, pioneering the stackable tower battery concept with the first generation high-voltage battery system in 2017. BYD utilizes 50V or 100V modules connected in series to build a high-voltage battery system with various capacities and voltages ranging from 150V to 400V. This makes it an ideal solution to meet most homes’ energy needs.
BYD batteries are among the most efficient in the industry. Though they offer several different models depending on your exact needs, they all exceed 95% roundtrip efficiency, and this represents consistent, exceptional performance for a solar battery.
Many people choose batteries made by a solar company that also makes their other equipment because they worry about compatibility. However, BYD batteries are compatible with virtually every major brand in solar, including the following:
- SolaX Power
- Victron Energy
With such impressive compatibility, efficiency, scalability, and unique and convenient tower construction, it’s little wonder that the BYD solar battery is a top competitor in solar energy storage.
