Battery-Box Commercial at-a-glance
The BYD Battery-Box Commercial is the largest battery storage system within the Battery-Box family and is intended for commercial and industrial applications. The system models C130 (131 kWh) and C230 (233 kWh) with the REFUstore inverter unit provide 88kW of power. The connection to the customer's energy system is realized on the AC-side. The integrated EMS allows the application for peak-shaving. Another common use-case is an increased energy self-consumption. For more complex projects, such as dynamic load-control of charging infrastructure, the solution can be easily integrated into a higher-level energy management system. Outstanding capacity reserves differentiate the Battery-Box Commercial from other commercial systems. The lithium-iron phosphate battery cells ensure a safe and high-performance storage.
