• Homeowners across America are getting savvy to solar battery backup. In fact, in San Diego, homeowners who already have solar installations are purchasing solar batteries in droves to take advantage of the massive benefits. 

    Getting a solar battery is easier than ever before due to no money down financing options that allow you to immediately start saving money with zero upfront cost. On top of this, you can power your entire life on the sun. 

    Let’s check out the high-level benefits:

    1. Solar batteries help you to offset Time-of-Use rates. Why consume electricity at the most expensive peak times? With a solar battery you can absorb energy during the day and consume it during peak early evening hours. This means a smaller solar installation can have even more of an impact on your electricity bill than before!

    2. Solar batteries help to provide emergency backup power. These days, the grid shuts down and faces blackouts more than anyone would like. With a solar battery in San Diego you can keep your electricity going during blackouts and have peace of mind.

    3. Solar batteries enable homeowners to charge their electric vehicles. In fact, many of our customers live their entire lives off the sun, and haven’t paid an electricity or gasoline bill in over a decade. Many charge their cars during off peak times or with their batteries during peak times so they are consistently getting the best deal possible.

    4. Solar batteries and a home solar installation both raise the value of a home. This is logical because who wouldn’t want to walk into a home that already has its electricity bills eliminated? If you purchase solar battery backup you’re saving now and also boosting the long-term value of your property.

    5. Solar batteries and solar installations have a positive environmental impact. As more and more people get solar, they’ve able to take advantage of the abundant natural resource that is the sun. Plus, you’re helping the utility out by diversifying the electricity mix and lessening demand on the grid. 

    These are all solid reasons to get solar battery backup. We offer a plethora of options including Tesla PowerWall, LG Chem, and Enphase batteries. All of them help to offset Time-Of-Use charges, and protect yourself from rolling blackouts. Check out our options with top manufacturers in the world:


    These batteries are optimized to keep delivering power even in harsh weather conditions. Enphase batteries are designed to withstand every type of weather from rain, hale, snow, and even ice. In fact, the intelligent Storm Guard™ feature was created to track weather systems so it can prioritize power backup when an approaching storm or bad weather is detected. 

    On top of this, users can integrate AC home standby generators into their Enphase battery system to maintain more power during the lengthier grid outages. Another perk is that users can turn off any appliances that drain too much power. They can turn off appliances automatically or manually with the Enphase app to conserve power during outages or in general. 

    LG Chem:

    As you will probably know, LG is a global brand that is known for dependable products and appliances. This reputation has lived up finely to their status as solar battery backup provider. How so?  LG Energy Solution is a global battery cell manufacturer, and actually manufactures the battery cells that go into their solar home battery. LG is also a financially strong company that touts their ability to support their product warranties in case anything goes wrong. 

    LG’s modular home battery is designed to enable easy transportation and installation. Plus, users can take advantage of remote battery monitoring to check up on the battery status, monitoring, and control settings. On top of this, LG home batteries have a detachable control unit which can be easily replaced on site, saving you maintenance time and cost.

    Tesla Powerwall:

    Tesla is a well known brand that has finally delved into the dollar battery backup space. Powerwalls are integrated battery systems that can store your solar energy for backup protection. Powerwalls are designed to detect outages and automatically recharge with solar panel sunlight to keep your house running for days on end.

    Powerwalls definitely have a reputation of being easy to install yet also having a sleek minimalist design which can complement virtually any type of home style and solar system. Tesla notes that their compact, all-in-one construction features have versatile mounting options which can be used in both indoor or outdoor spaces. Powerwalls are water resistant and durably designed to withstand all weather conditions. They can even be stacked together in groups of up to 10.
