Many of our customers in the Maricopa, Pinal, and Pima County areas ask us about solar battery storage, wanting to know if it is a smart option for their residential or commercial solar system. As local experts with expertise in grid-tied or off-grid systems with solar battery storage, we’re here to help you understand the unique benefits of having a solar battery backup.
What Is Solar Battery Storage?
Even if you aren’t going off-grid — where battery storage is essential for maintaining constant access to power year-round, day and night — battery storage is an important option to consider as you make the switch to solar.
With a grid-tied system, a solar battery backup allows you to store the excess energy your solar system generates. Then, during times when your system is generating less energy, such as at night or during the winter, your system can use this excess energy to power your home. As with a grid-tied system without battery storage, you also always have the option to send your excess energy back into the power grid for a credit on your electricity bill.
The Benefits of a Solar Battery Storage
Adding battery backup to your solar system can give you access to a number of benefits — especially here in Arizona where warm weather and sunshine are abundant. Benefits include:
Available storage for excess energy 24/7
Greater energy independence
Significantly reduced utility bills
- Reduce or offset peak demand charging
- Backup power during power outages and blackouts
