Solar Battery Backup Installation
Solar Battery Backup Installation for the Monterey, Santa Cruz and Salinas Area
Solar batteries are an excellent energy storage solution for California homeowners in the Monterey, Salinas, and Santa Cruz areas. With residential solar panels plus a home solar battery, you’ll be able to:
- Use more of the power your solar panels generate
- Keep your lights on during a power outage or PSPS event
- Load shift to avoid demand response charges and time-of-use rates
- Become more independent of the electric grid and PG&E
- Protect yourself against rising electricity rates
Premo Solar installs solar batteries for homes and businesses in California. We install high-end home solar battery storage products, including Enphase batteries and Tesla Powerwall, and we’ll help you choose the best solar battery system for your home.
Solar Batteries Store Solar Energy for Later Use
During the day, solar panels typically generate more electricity than the average homeowner uses. So what happens to the excess? In a traditional grid-tied solar power system, it’s either wasted or sent to the electric grid. A solar battery allows you to store that energy at your home instead, creating a solar power reserve that you can tap into at night or on a cloudy day.
Solar batteries also make it possible to keep your solar panels running during a power outage. Without a solar battery, all grid-tied solar systems are automatically shut off whenever the grid goes down. This is to protect utility workers who may be repairing power lines. If you have a solar battery in California, however, your system will temporarily disconnect itself from the grid during an outage, and you’ll be able to continue generating and storing electricity if your system is able to switch into an island or off-grid mode.
Install Solar Battery Backup for Your Home
Whether you want to add a home solar power battery system to your solar panels or install a new solar power system with a home solar battery, Premo Solar can help. Premo Solar is a leading residential and commercial solar installation company in the Monterey Bay area, and we’re proud to help California residents gain their energy independence with solar power and home batteries.
How long home solar batteries last depends on how many batteries are in your home solar system and their kWh capacities. Premo Solar will talk to you about your energy needs and recommend the right solar power battery system for your home, whether you want to maintain power to essential loads like your AC and refrigerator during an outage or you want enough backup power for your entire home.
