Big Power in Tiny Spaces

As the tiny home movement gains momentum with more and more people choosing to downsize due to environmental concerns, financial factors or the desire for more freedom, the need for safe and reliable storage in a small form factor has never been greater. SimpliPhi delivers ideal, compact energy storage solutions for tiny home owners.

Tiny Home FAQs:

Do I have room for the storage I need?

SimpliPhi batteries have a very small footprint, and because they do not require ventilation or ancillary cooling or thermal monitoring equipment, they can be installed in very tight spaces. In addition, because the batteries can operate safely in temperatures from -4° to 140°F, SimpliPhi batteries can be installed indoors or outdoors, depending on the ideal location in or on your tiny home.

Is it safe to have batteries installed in a tight living space?

There is no safer energy storage alternative for tiny homes than SimpliPhi. SimpliPhi’s cobalt-free lithium ferrous phosphate (LFP) lithium ion chemistry is environmentally benign, non-toxic and does not pose a danger of fire from thermal runaway. SimpliPhi batteries do not pose a risk to your home or your family.

How many batteries will I need?

Your SimpliPhi energy storage system should be sized to meet your unique energy loads. A load analysis will calculate how much electricity is consumed by all of the appliances and electronic devices in your home. With that information, our applications engineers will work with you and your licensed installer to choose the right number and the ideal model of PHI batteries to provide you with reliable, secure power. If your energy needs increase over time, SimpliPhi’s modular designs will allow you to easily and seamlessly scale up your battery bank.

Can I combine SimpliPhi batteries with a generator?

SimpliPhi's off-grid systems are typically seamlessly integrated with a backup generator for use during extended cloudy periods or other times when sufficient PV generation is not available. Our solutions are designed to optimize any source of power generation, including diesel and natural gas generators.
