Solar batteries are an integral part of your home solar system and provide substantial benefits that maximize your return on investment. Solar energy storage allows you routinely save your acquired energy for when you need it and sell the excess back to the grid.
Home Solar Battery for Solar Energy Storage
Utility rates continue to rise, with an average of 20% increase in costs this year alone. Maximize the value of your home solar system by utilizing your solar battery or expanding your solar system with additional batteries for expanded capacity. Benefits of your solar battery system include:
- Use it when you need it: Pull energy from your solar battery in the evening to avoid usage at the more expensive peak time, and save more money every day
- Maximize your capacity: Collect solar energy throughout the day to maximize the battery storage capacity for your home.
- Send it back for energy credits: Sell your surplus energy - send it back to the grid to lower your utility costs, or even make a profit!
Battery Backup for Solar
Solar for Your utility provider prohibits your solar panels from continuing to feed power into the grid during a blackout. They require that your solar energy system automatically shut down causing your entire home to go dark. But a backup battery can allow your home to continue to receive power to your critical appliances such as your Wi-Fi, TV, refrigerator, lights, fans and important medical devices.
Stay Powered during Natural Disasters – California is a great place to live, but we all know too well that winter storms, wildfires and severe earthquakes can cause unexpected power outages at the most inconvenient times. Owning a home battery means that you have instantaneous and reliable backup power for your home when you need it the most.
“Utility Proof” Your Solar Energy System
California’s public utilities (SoCal Edison, PG&E and SDG&E) have recently made some unpopular changes that many homeowners are struggling to deal with. SolarMax Technology has developed a home battery system that will help ensure you are protected from the new and future utility changes.
Protection from Planned Blackouts during Wildfire Conditions – The public utilities have all announced and have already begun turning off the power to thousands of customers during peak wildfire conditions. Be prepared with a home battery to keep the lights, appliances and essentials on automatically when you receive a shut-off notice.
Protection from Time of Use Energy Rates – The public utilities have switched you to a new type of billing method called “Time of Use”. Instead of charging you more for the total quantity of energy used in a month, you are now charged higher rates at the times you typically use the most energy: in the early evening hours. A home battery will store the solar energy you produce during the day for you to use later in the evening to reduce your need to pull expensive power from the grid.
Integrated Home Power System
California Rebates and Federal Tax Credit for Energy Storage
You could get up to over 50% off the cost of your home battery by taking advantage of both Federal and State incentives.
Federal Solar Tax Rebate – A new home battery installation qualifies for the Federal renewable energy tax credit, so you can get back 30% of the cost of the battery and installation costs in your next tax return.
California Self Generation Incentive Program – For a limited time, the state could help you cover the cost of your home battery.
