Prepare for the Next Storm with Backup Battery Storage and Generators

February 15, 2023

Many homeowners in the Sacramento, CA, area are still recovering from the damage caused by the endless deluge of rain earlier this year. This excessive precipitation was caused by the atmospheric river phenomenon, in which large amounts of water vapor accumulate in long, narrow swaths of the atmosphere and are released in the form of either rain or snow. With that rain came power outages, and the time it took to restore power was hampered by flood waters and road damage.

Many homeowners are turning to the professionals at Brower Mechanical to see how they can be better prepared for the next storm. Here’s what we’ve been telling our customers about installing backup battery storage and generators:

You Can Prepare for Power Outages!

With severe storms, droughts and other weather related events becoming increasingly frequent, California homeowners want to take control of their family’s safety. As storm related power outages and Planned Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) outages multiply, the importance of backup energy increases. With advanced technology and tremendous incentives, the experts at Brower Mechanical can equip your home with a new system that keeps your lights on and your family safe.

Backup Generators Keep Your Power On

If you’ve already experienced a power outage (or three), you know that the effects can range. While for some the greatest concern is a loss of perishables, for others a power outage can take out life-saving medical equipment. Installing a backup generator can help prevent everything from an inconvenience to an emergency.

Standby generators kick on when an outage is detected. When the power is restored, the generator switches off. With a generator installed by Broward Mechanical you can:

  • Keep food cold and prevent spoilage

  • Operate your well and septic pumps

  • Power lights as well as heating and cooling systems

  • Stay connected to official information

  • Operate essential medical equipment 

  • Maintain home protection with existing security systems

Backup Battery Storage—A Great Solution with or without Solar!

Many Sacramento-area homeowners are considering adding solar panels to their homes, especially with the generous 30% solar tax credit now available through the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Backup battery storage incentives are also included in the IRA and as a result, there’s never been a better time to add solar battery storage to your home. Battery storage from the experts at Brower Mechanical can provide power for your home:

  • When an outage occurs;

  • When utility cost-of-use rates are at their highest;

  • When your solar panels aren’t producing electricity—like at night or on cloudy days.

Another major benefit to adding battery backup power is powering up your solar array when the grid is down. With a solar battery backup, your solar electricity production won’t fail with a PSPS outage. Plus, excess solar power will be stored in the battery for later access.

Tap Into 2023 Solar and Battery Tax Credits

With federal and California state tax credits for energy efficiency, alternative energy upgrades, and battery storage, there’s no better time to improve your home’s electric system. 

Here’s an overview of the currently available tax incentives:

  • Solar — The federal solar tax credit (a.k.a. the ITC) is worth 30% of your solar installation costs.

  • Backup Batteries — Energy storage devices with a capacity rating of 3kW or more also qualify for the 30% tax credit, as of January 1, 2023. 

Other tax incentives and rebates from Sacramento area utilities may also apply.
