Exploring the Factors Behind the Residential Battery Surge

The market for home batteries is picking up.

In the second quarter of this year, residential storage capacity
installations outpaced utility-scale installations. There were more
residential batteries installed in Q2 than in all of 2017.

California and Hawaii are dominating deployments. But states
like Colorado, Florida, New York and New Jersey are emerging as
interesting markets to watch.

So what’s driving the increase in activity?

Residential storage doesn’t mirror other technologies like
solar. It’s more of an emotional sell — and there are a lot
different value propositions that contribute to battery
sales. 

In this episode, Shayle Kann talks with GTM Staff Writer Julian
Spector about the latest trends in residential storage.
