Solar Battery Storage
Power outages—both scheduled and unexpected—are becoming increasingly common here in California as we continue to battle wildfires, extreme weather, and an outdated electric grid. Is your home prepared for Public Safety Power Shutoffs, rolling blackouts, Flex Power Alerts, and unplanned grid outages?
Installing a residential solar system with battery backup is the best way to protect your home against power outages. Home solar batteries in CA allow you to store backup power and keep your solar panels running during a grid outage! With solar energy storage you can:
Use more of the electricity your solar panels produce
Keep your solar panels running during a power outage
Get a backup power source for your home
Avoid peak electricity rates and save more on your electric bills

Stay Prepared for Power Outages with Home Solar Battery Storage
In response to recent wildfires, California utility companies like PG&E have announced public safety power shutoffs (PSPS). PSPS events happen when utility companies intentionally turn off power for selected customers to minimize the damage resulting from wildfires and other natural disasters. A PSPS event can last for a few hours or several days and can happen with little advance notice. You can monitor for announced PSPS events on PG&E’s weather awareness website.
With a home solar plus battery storage system, you can avoid planned and unplanned power outages. Solar plus battery systems can temporarily disconnect from the grid during an outage, allowing you to run your solar panels and charge your batteries while the grid is down. You’ll be able to power your home with energy from your solar panels during a daytime outage and draw on stored power from your batteries during a nighttime outage.
Get Reliable Power Around the Clock with Solar Batteries for Your Home
The one major downside to rooftop solar panels is that they only work when there is sunlight available. At night, you’ll have to rely on the electric grid. If you have a home solar power battery system, however, you can store the excess power your PV panels generate during the day and use your stored solar energy at night. Solar batteries help you use more of the energy your solar panels produce so you can save money and use less fossil fuel.
Having a home battery backup system also comes in handy during hours when your utility is charging peak energy pricing. Your smart system can see when peak pricing is in effect, and draw power from your solar battery power backup instead, saving you money.
California Incentives for Solar Battery Installation
Home solar battery bank installation qualifies for several national and state incentives!
The federal solar tax credit offers homeowners a tax credit worth 30% of the total cost of their solar panel and battery installation.
California’s Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) offers a sliding scale of financial incentives to homeowners installing new equipment for storing power, like solar batteries.
Net metering in California allows you to send unused kWhs of solar electricity that exceed your home’s usage as well as the capacity of your solar battery.
