I have three phase power, do I need a three phase battery?

The wrong (or misconfigured) battery system on a three-phase home will only reduce grid electricity use on the battery’s phase. It is therefore essential that you buy a battery system that is capable of offsetting your grid electricity consumption charges on all three-phases.
However a single-phase battery inverter, AC coupled with 3 consumption CTs can be a good choice rather than a 3 phase battery.
