Can I DIY a Battery Install?

It is possible to install our Enphase IQ batteries DIY. However, the process of installation for batteries is much more difficult than standard solar installations, and Enphase requires a certification for the battery to be issued. 

The IQ 10 weighs in at a hefty 341 lbs, and battery installs will require a System Controller 2, which can further complicate the install process. 

If you're interested in adding an Enphase battery to your system, consider using one of our partnered installers.

If you're looking for a more DIY-friendly alternative, the Project Solar Power Bank and its accessories are a great option, at a fraction of the IQ 10's price. 

This storage device is expandable, affordable, and portable, and a Transfer Switch SubPanel can be installed that will provide a simplified backup process.
