Add a Storage Battery for Even More Energy Independence

Storage Batteries offer both homeowners and commercial business owners many benefits to assure continuous availability of electric power.

Did you know that your solar system shuts off when the grid goes down. During power outages, the utility grid mandates solar systems to turn off. This prevents the ability of your solar system to feed power to the grid and to your home/business. A solar storage battery system can automatically isolate your solar system from the grid and will keep your family

A storage battery also provides the following benefits:

    • Reduce Peak Charges - even if you don't have solar power, a storage battery allows you to store energy when the rates are lower and then use that energy to avoid higher rates during peak periods.

    • Off Grid Living - With the right Solar Power system combined with a properly engineered Storage Battery system, you can live completely off the grid, independent of your local utility

    • Zero Grid Export - Depending on your utility, the reimbursement for power sold back to the grid may not offset the cost of power purchased from the grid. It is often advantageous to store that power for self-consumption.

    • Reduce Demand Charges - Storage batteries can store energy during off-peak energy periods, then discharge it when rates are highest, reducing your total power cost.

    But don't just take our word for it...

    "The best PV expert..."

    “Ken has been my go-to guy for PVs, and is generally considered the best PV expert in our PV-rich area. He designed and installed my state-of-the-art, superefficient home and office’s PV system which can run resiliently with or without the the grid.”

    Amory Lovins

    CEO Rocky Mountain Institute

    "Pleased with the entire process..."

    “We were very pleased with the entire process of adding on solar, as well as working with Sol Energy. Ken stayed with it all the way through the entire process, including rebates, until it was up & running and hooked up to our computer for easy access. I basically did nothing …..except sit in the shade & watch it all happen. We would definitely recommend Sol Energy to everyone.”

    John & Bonnie Williams


    "Very happy with our system..."

    “I work in the utility industry and know many of the solar installers in the valley and statewide. My wife and I chose to work with SoL Energy because their experience, level of customer service and personal approach were the best fit for us, and we have been very happy with our system and the ongoing support.”
