I add a battery backup to my existing grid tie solar system which uses a SolarEdge inverter. It’s becoming quite common that people purchase a grid tie system and then realize they want to add a battery backup. There are many ways to do it, but an AC coupled setup is going to be the easiest, cheapest, and most effective as well!

Equipment I used for my system:

I have no affiliation with any of these companies, nor have I received any compensation from them. Use of SolarEdge logo on thumbnail falls under fair use of trademark, as it is a SolarEdge system that I am retrofitting.
