Getting Started with the mySunPower Monitoring App for Equinox Solar and SunVault Storage

After installation, we'll receive permission to operate (PTO) from your utility company. Your installer will contact you as soon as your system is ready for activation. In the meantime, download the mySunPower® app and connect your account using the directions below.

Setting your preferred operating mode for SunVault storage

SunVault storage is capable of operating in 3 modes, as listed below. You can change modes using the mySunPower app at any time.

  • The default setting is Self-Supply mode, which maximizes your use of solar by charging during daylight hours and using battery power after the sun goes down.

  • Reserve Mode stores 100% of your battery power in case there's a power outage.

  • Cost Savings mode limits your use of grid energy at peak times when it's most expensive.

  • If you select Cost Savings or Self-Supply mode, we recommend setting reserve energy at 20% or more so you're ready for an unexpected power outage.
