It’s a battery for your house.

Ovo Home Energy Storage (HES) is an energy storage device that can be used to power your home during a power cut, charge your car, and store electricity generated by solar panels.

Ovo HES differs from traditional batteries in the way it charges and discharges electricity. The battery is charged first, then it’s used to provide power directly to appliances such as lights, fridges, and heaters while they’re running. The battery can also be used when there’s no electricity coming into your house at all – this means it will work during a blackout!

It’s easy to install.

It’s easy to install.

If you’re considering installing an ovo home energy storage system, it’s a good idea to know that it’s not a complicated task at all. In fact, the process is quite simple and takes less than half an hour to complete. To begin with, you’ll need to contact your local ovo Energy electricity retailer or installer who will be able to give you advice on what components are needed for your location and then provide assistance in getting it installed once purchased

You don’t need solar panels.

If you’re thinking about installing solar panels, but want to start small, ovo home energy storage is a great way to go. You might be worried that you won’t be able to save on your electricity bill as much as if you had solar panels. But with ovo home energy storage, there’s no need for solar panels!

All the things listed below will still happen even if you don’t have any solar panels:

  • Your power company will pay you for any excess electricity they get from your house (see our data sheet). This is known as “net metering.” We’ll talk more about this later in this guide.
  • OVO Home Energy Storage makes it possible for people without a roof or yard access to take advantage of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power too.*

It re-uses renewable energy that would otherwise go to waste.

Ovo home energy storage is a battery that can store energy from your solar panels when the sun is shining, or from the wind during a gusty day. This means you’ll be able to use electricity when it’s needed most—even at night or on a cloudy day. It’s a great way to make sure your household always has power, even if your solar panels aren’t producing enough at that time of day.

Ovo home energy storage is the future of renewable energy

OVO Home Energy Storage is the first battery for your house, and it’s easy to install.

Available exclusively to OVO Energy customers, this smart battery gives you control of your energy usage so that you can store solar power during the day and use it at night. The OVO Home Battery also protects against blackouts by providing an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) function – meaning no more lights flickering on when the power goes out.

You can even set up ‘smart charging’ rules for your appliances in advance so that when there is excess solar energy available on your property, it can be stored in the OVO home battery rather than being exported back into the grid at a lower rate of payback than what you are currently receiving from this process.
