KiloVault unveils DIY all-in-one solar-ready off-grid energy storage

Living off the grid is a dream for many people who seek a sustainable and independent lifestyle. One of the biggest challenges of going off-grid is finding a reliable energy source that is not dependent on the traditional power grid. This is where an off-grid energy storage system comes in handy.

An off-grid energy storage system stores excess energy generated by renewable energy sources such as solar panels or wind turbines. This stored energy can then be used during times when renewable energy sources are not generating enough power, such as during cloudy or windless days. This means that you can live in remote areas without access to the grid and still have all the comforts of home.

For such individuals seeking a sustainable and independent lifestyle, Massachusetts-based KiloVault has designed and launched the Uniti EcoFreedom, its groundbreaking new energy system for off-grid living. The revolutionary KiloVault Uniti EcoFreedom is a solar-ready, do-it-yourself (DIY) off-grid energy storage system that provides reliable energy solutions for a variety of needs.

The system relies on cutting-edge battery technology that ensures safety, longevity and allows for deep energy cycling. This makes it ideal for powering homes, cabins, and spaces off the grid.

What makes the standout Uniti EcoFreedom is its unique all-in-one, pre-wired design, which slashes installation and setup time, saving users valuable days. The EcoFreedom system is divided into easily movable sections, enabling a single person to transport and assemble the components without the need for specialized tools or equipment. It is specifically designed to work seamlessly with solar panels, making it an ideal choice for renewable energy applications.

The battery system comes in three sizes. EcoFreedom Lite comes with four 12.8v 180Ah Advanced Lead Acid Batteries for 8.64 kWh of rated energy and 4.32 kWh of usable energy.

EcoFreedom 5 comes with eight 12.8v 100Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) batteries for 10.2kWh of rated energy and 9.6 kWh of usable energy. EcoFreedom 10 comes with four 51.2v 100Ah lithium battery packs for 20.48kWh of rated energy and 18.4 kWh of usable energy. It can be simply expanded to 30.7kWh rated and 27.6 kWh of usable energy with additional battery packs.

In addition, the Uniti EcoFreedom is complemented by an integrated solar charge controller, ensuring efficient and effective battery charging while optimizing round-trip energy efficiency. Included inverter allows for high-power discharge rates, ensuring optimal utilization of stored energy.

Its integrated breakers save the expense and headache of wiring an additional breaker box, enabling the homeowner the option to run their electric circuits directly into the Uniti.

Thanks to its ability to run appliances and devices such as LED bulbs, phones, laptops, TVs, tools, and heating and cooling systems, the Uniti EcoFreedom provides versatile energy support tailored to a full energy independence lifestyle.

“One of the biggest challenges off-grid homeowners face is finding a safe, reliable energy source that doesn’t require hiring multiple professionals and hours – and more likely days – of setup time,” said Sascha Deri, CEO of KiloVault. “With Uniti EcoFreedom, we’re giving customers the ability to live off the grid while reducing their reliance on traditional energy sources and the expense of hired labor to install multiple components. Assembled in the USA, the Uniti EcoFreedom enables anyone to enjoy the freedom of sustainable off-grid living without sacrificing comfort or convenience.”

The company says Uniti EcoFreedom is proudly assembled and rigorously tested in the United States, reflecting KiloVault’s dedication to quality and sustainability.
