Make your home more resilient by powering it with clean energy during electrical outages.
Battery storage provides back-up power for your home in case of a electrical outage. The battery is charged up and drawn down using your home’s electrical system.
Homes with Solar Electricity / Generator Replacements
Battery storage offers a convenient and easy way to provide electricity to your home in a power outage.
How can battery storage be used in homes?
Battery storage is used to power homes during a utility outage or at night if excess electricity has been generated by your solar panels during the day.
Do you already have a Solar Electric System?
Battery storage complements solar electricity. Electricity created from the solar panels can be stored and then used at night or during power outages. During a multi-day power outage, solar panels can recharge your battery if the system is configured with islanding capacity. Talk to your installer about how to configure your solar panels and battery storage to best fit your needs.
Can you buy battery storage if you don’t have solar electricity?
Yes, for homes without solar electricity, the battery storage will be charged by grid electricity.
Do you have frequent power outages?
Battery storage is a lower-maintenance, cleaner way to provide electricity to your home during a power outage compared to using a diesel- or propane-fueled generator.
How can you receive revenue from battery storage?
Battery storage systems can generate additional credits from your utility when paired with a solar electricity, as well as provide an opportunity for payments from your utility when the battery is dispatched at times of peak energy use by the grid.
How long can battery storage power your home during an outage?
It depends your electricity consumption during the outage and the storage capacity of your battery/ies. Many residential batteries can last one to two days if you are only using them to power essential loads.
Pledge to reduce your home’s carbon footprint by replacing old systems and appliances with clean energy technologies over time.
