Piko Home Battery System

Piko Home Battery System

The complete sys­tem con­sists a bat­tery in­verter (PIKO BA) the bat­tery (PIKO Bat­tery) and accessoires (PIKO BA Sen­sor and PIKO BA Backup Unit).

The Piko Home Battery System is not new. But its approved, smart and it makes you autonomous from the grid.

People who are choosing for solar PV, often want to be independent from the grid.

This is possible with this German, so thoroughness, battery system allows you to increase your self-consumption and reduce your energy costs.

Kostal about the Piko system:

Piko is smart

Your own power, pro­duced and stored through­out the day, en­ables you to watch tele­vi­sion or cook at any time with­out pur­chas­ing ex­tra elec­tric­ity. The PIKO BA Sys­tem reg­u­lates the var­i­ous sta­tuses in the house com­pletely au­to­mat­i­cally and with­out a loss of con­ve­nience. At any time you will enjoy a se­cured power sup­ply un­der the premise of max­i­mum self-con­sump­tion of your so­lar power.

The smart system balances the en­ergy flows in your house in a bet­ter way while two tools, the PIKO So­lar App and the So­lar Por­tal sup­port you. Both show you the power at your dis­posal and your level of self- and power con­sump­tion. In this way, you can sim­ply switch on your house­hold ap­pli­ances while elec­tric­ity is be­ing pro­duced. Due to that be­hav­ior you in­crease your self-con­sump­tion.


Ad­di­tion­ally to the mon­i­tor­ing of your stor­age sys­tem, the sys­tem as­sists you in de­vel­op­ing your home into a Smart Home. With the net­work­ing tech­nol­ogy EE­Bus*, house­hold ap­pli­ances can com­mu­ni­cate with one an­other and be au­to­mat­i­cally switched on or off, depending of the amount of green energy you are producing.

Your in­de­pen­dent and flex­i­ble us­age op­tions

The PIKO BA Sys­tem was spe­cially de­vel­oped for the re­quire­ments of sin­gle-fam­ily dwellings. Here, sys­tem per­for­mances be­tween 4 and 11 kWp are op­ti­mal. This ap­plies to both south­fac­ing and east-west sys­tems. The Sys­tem of­fers a max­i­mum of flex­i­bil­ity and op­ti­mal en­ergy yields.
