Unleash the Power of Energy Storage

With its impressive energy storage capacity, the IQ Battery 5P provides homeowners and businesses with a remarkable supply of solar energy. Say goodbye to dependence on the grid and welcome a new level of energy independence. These batteries are named 5p because they get 5 kilowatt hours per module, with 3.8 kilowatts of continuous power and 7.6 kilowatts for every 3 seconds. These batteries also come with a 15 year warranty, which has been extended from the previous 10 year warranty. By harnessing the expanded potential of the IQ Battery 5P, you can liberate yourself from grid constraints and take control of your energy future.

Maximize Efficiency for Optimal Returns

We believe in maximizing your return on investment, and the IQ Battery 5P is designed to do just that. With its superior energy conversion and efficiency, every unit of energy you generate is put to good use. No more wasted energy. No more missed opportunities. The IQ Battery 5P ensures that you get the most out of your solar power investment.


Flexibility to Meet Your Unique Needs

At Independent Energy, we understand that your energy requirements may change over time. That’s why the IQ Battery 5P’s modular design allows for easy expansion. You can start with a smaller capacity and add more batteries as your energy needs grow. This flexibility ensures that your energy storage system can adapt to your changing demands, providing a tailor-made solution that evolves with you.

Intelligent Energy Management for Optimal Savings

The IQ Battery 5P is equipped with smart energy management capabilities that go beyond basic storage. With Enphase’s cutting-edge technology, the battery uses real-time data and intelligent algorithms to optimize energy storage, usage, and grid interaction. This means you can save on electricity bills by charging during off-peak hours and make the most efficient use of your stored energy. Take control of your energy consumption and maximize your savings with the IQ Battery 5P.

Safety and Reliability You Can Trust

Safety is our utmost priority. That’s why we have chosen the IQ Battery 5P, built to the highest standards. It incorporates advanced safety features such as cell-level monitoring, temperature control, and rapid shutdown functionality, ensuring safe operation and protecting against potential hazards. It has been named the “safest battery” on the market, designed with LFP technology, meaning there is no thermal runaway. Not to mention, because it is a modular system, if one battery fails the rest will keep working. Rest assured that your energy storage system is designed with your safety in mind.

The Enphase IQ Battery 5P can bring significant benefits to Hawaii, a region that holds unique opportunities and challenges for renewable energy.

Hawaii’s abundant sunlight and the Enphase IQ Battery 5P optimize solar energy utilization, reducing grid reliance and increasing self-sufficiency. The battery mitigates grid stress by storing excess solar energy and discharging it during high-demand periods, ensuring grid stability and reliability. With intelligent energy management, users save on electricity bills by charging during off-peak hours. The battery also enhances energy resilience during outages, providing backup power for critical loads. Moreover, the IQ Battery 5P aligns with Hawaii’s clean energy goals, reducing fossil fuel dependency and combating climate change.

Status: The program is capped at 50 megawatts (MW), as of right now we are at 6.2 MW.

  • Currently customers who are accepted into the program will receive $850 per kilowatt (kW).
  • After the first 15 MW is filled, the next 15 MW of committed capacity will receive $750 per kW.
  • After the next 15 MW is used the last 20 MW of committed capacity will receive $500 per kW.

Customers that are not currently enrolled in the company’s Net Energy Metering (NEM) Program will receive a fixed monthly bill credit for energy exported to the grid for three years. The credit is an amount equivalent to the respective retail rate for electricity exported during the two-hour period. After these three years are completed any underlying interconnection tariff export rates, if any, will apply.

Customers who wish to participate with an existing solar system and are presently enrolled in a customer energy program (such as Net Energy Metering, and Grid Supply or others) will continue to receive full benefits from these programs. Up to 5 kW of new panels may be added under existing programs. There is no limit on the size of an individual customer’s battery.

If you would like to add more than 5 kW of additional capacity of PV, it is possible as long as you still adhere to a 2:1 PV to battery output ratio. These apply to any interconnection tariff customers!


“We wholeheartedly recommend Independent Energy Hawaii for all your solar photovoltaic system needs. From our initial conversations with Desta to the final inspection with James, every interaction was extraordinarily positive. The team’s knowledge, honesty, and professionalism was exceptional. The whole process was done efficiently and reliably and we couldn’t be more appreciative. Every member of the team was professional, competent, and respectful in their dealings with us.”

“Easily the most professional crew I ever had the pleasure of doing business with, and I never felt alone or in the dark thanks to Desta. He helped me with all my questions and I loved the fact that he was just a phone call away. Dedication to something like that is just hard to find nowadays. This company was a breath of fresh air for me and I wish I could do such an awesome crew justice with such a simple review. 10/10″

“Desta, Adam, Mike, Garrison and the rest of the Independent Energy Team are amazing. They were knowledgeable, responsive and helpful throughout our whole solar process. When issues came up (as they always do with projects), they went the extra mile to make sure everything worked properly.
Our panels and battery were installed on time as promised and are working great – just got our first ever $26 HECO bill!
This company cares about helping people and doing quality work, which is very rare these days. Hands down the best experience I’ve had with a company for home improvement/renovations. Highly recommend!”
