A DC-connected energy storage system connects to the grid mains at the same place as the solar panels; this usually means that they share a ‘Hybrid Inverter’. You can think of this as a ‘one box’ solution, because there is only one inverter instead of two.

Because they contain fewer components (which usually translates into lower costs), we generally recommend DC-coupled systems for homes considering a brand new solar & storage system (as opposed to a retrofit).
