What is solar storage?

Solar storage, or energy storage, plays an important role in the future of the solar industry and how people use and consume energy. When a homeowner chooses to go solar and install solar panels, they have an option to add solar batteries as well. By having a solar + storage system, homeowners can choose how they use the energy that their solar system generates – whether storing to use during the evening, to mitigate peak-energy charges (time-of-use pricing) from their utility, or in case of a power outage. By choosing to back up their whole home, or specific essentials loads, homeowners have peace of mind by taking control of their energy.

How does it work?

The solar system generates electricity during the day and uses that energy to power your home and charge the home solar storage battery. In the evening, when the solar system isn’t producing electricity, solar storage can decrease the amount of electricity drawn from the grid. Solar storage can provide power to essential appliance and electronics in an outage. The solar plus storage system will allow you to generate your own energy and then use it when it best suits your needs.
