Why solar batteries?

Enphase Solar Battery installed on side of a homeHome solar battery backup can help you reduce your impact on the planet, cut down on your energy bills, take control of your home’s energy and prepare for power outages.

The cost of electricity has been on the rise for a while (1), and all indications are that trend is going to continue (2). It makes sense to want to invest in a solar panel system that can help fight those rising costs. But when that investment means that the clean solar energy you generate reduces the carbon emissions that are polluting the planet? That’s a home run.

Putting solar panels on your roof means that you can capture clean, green solar energy for your home, but having a battery attached to your solar energy system means you are in control of it as well.

You can store any extra energy you generate in your solar battery and use it when it’s most valuable to you. You can control when you use your energy with apps that maximize the value of your system. And you can use your battery to help power through power outages.

In fact, one of the top reasons homeowners install a home solar battery backup system is peace of mind. Knowing that your home is protected from outages helps you rest easy, no matter what life throws at you. Think of it as insurance for your home’s energy.

What are the benefits of solar battery storage?

Enphase Battery

The benefits of solar battery storage cannot be understated. It’s a key part of taking control of your home’s energy. With solar battery storage, you can store energy produced during peak daylight hours and use it to help power your home throughout the night. A solar battery backup also allows you to control when you draw power from the grid, which is a great way to protect against the rising costs of peak-hour electricity pricing. It’s a big part of energy independence and can help you keep powered through natural disasters and other types of blackouts. Solar batteries are a great investment in your home’s energy independence and resilience. To make it even better, solar batteries are eligible for the 30% federal tax credit*. And depending on where you live, there might be other local incentives.
