Batteries For Your Home
Enjoy a Self-Powered Home with Energy Storage
Residential Energy Storage
Batteries dramatically expand the effectiveness of a solar energy system by allowing you to store and use your solar electricity around the clock - not just when the sun is out. By adding batteries, more of your home's overall electricity use is fulfilled by your solar array, reducing your utility bill and reducing your carbon footprint.
Most residential battery systems fall into two basic categories: backup loads and whole-home backups. The first category requires dramatically less capacity and generally costs less than a sophisticated home grid system.
Benefits of Solar Batteries in Arizona
There are numerous benefits of solar batteries for residential use. First and foremost, solar batteries provide energy independence to homeowners. With a solar battery installed in their homes, homeowners can generate and store their own energy, reducing their reliance on the traditional power grid. This means that in the event of a power outage, homeowners can still have access to electricity to power critical devices or specific rooms.
Batteries also help homeowners save money on their energy bills. Solar panels generate energy during the day, and energy usage shifts to the grid when the sun goes down. This means that homeowners with solar panels often have higher energy bills at night when the solar panels are not producing energy. With a solar battery, homeowners can store the excess energy generated during the day and use it at night, reducing their reliance on the grid and lowering their energy bills.
Solar batteries also reduce the carbon footprint of homeowners. By storing excess solar energy, homeowners can reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and decrease carbon emissions. This is a significant benefit for those who are conscious of their environmental impact and want to contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable future.
Typical Battery Systems For Arizona Homes
Whole Home Backup Squashing On Peak Utility Fees
With a whole home backup system, you can add enough batteries to offset the most expensive on-peak utility hours or add more to keep your house operational during an extended power outage. These systems are highly customized and unique to each family and utility rate plan. In some cases, an upgrade to your electrical panel may also be required. Our experts will advise during the free consultation phase.
Backup Loads - Security in Times of Crisis
Power outages will occur with greater frequency as our national energy grid ages. Much simpler than a whole home system, a battery backup system will run your most critical loads – or a designated room – during a grid failure when your solar panels aren't producing. Batteries are charged by your panels during the day for use at night. This process repeats until grid power is restored.

Battery Incentives Offer Big Savings, But Only For A Limited Time
Apply the 30% Energy Storage Tax Credit
Introduced in August 2022 through the Inflation Reduction Act, homeowners can now receive a 30% energy storage tax credit. This revamped tax credit can be applied to stand-alone solar battery systems if it has at least 3kWh capacity.
