If you’re thinking of going solar you might wonder how your home will be powered at night or during a power outage.
Traditionally, homeowners have had to rely on the grid to power their homes at night or whenever there’s not much sunlight, such as during inclement weather. But these days, thanks to advancements in home solar battery technology, you can take full control over your home solar energy.
Today’s solar storage batteries are safer, more compact, more attractive, more intelligent, more affordable and longer lasting.
Thanks to the recent debut of the SunPower Equinox® system with SunVault™ storage, you can buy the best solar panels with storage included — all designed by the company that provides the most efficient solar panels you can buy and backs it all up with one comprehensive warranty.
You’ll gain unprecedented energy independence and peace-of-mind 24/7. If there’s a power outage, you’ll be able to keep the lights on and power select appliances and electronics for up to several days, depending upon how many batteries are installed.
Why Buy a Home Solar Battery
Throughout the day, as your solar panels turn sunlight into electricity, a solar storage battery automatically stores any excess solar energy via a unit that’s usually installed in an out-of-the way spot such as a garage.
Intelligent software monitors your solar, home energy use and utility rates to determine which power source to use, maximizing your solar power. Your battery then can automatically switch to stored energy for use at night or during times of day when your utility might charge higher rates due to peak-time-of use policies.
Your solar battery will detect a blackout or mandatory power outage, disconnect from the grid and instantly restore power to your home in a fraction of a second. Most homeowners don’t even notice that an outage took place during this switchover.
Many of the features can be customized, and you’ll be able to monitor your solar, storage and home energy usage in real-time with the monitoring app.
Many solar companies piece together the components of their home solar plus storage systems from multiple companies, which means those parts may not work seamlessly together, and they’re often not covered by one warranty. If there are problems, unless you’re an electrical expert, you might not know which company to even contact for help.
Because the Equinox storage battery was designed as part of a complete solar solution from one company — SunPower — we will stand behind our product and be your single point of contact. You are buying an entire SunPower system — not parts from multiple companies.
The SunPower Equinox solar plus storage ecosystem works in perfect harmony, and we’re the only company to offer this. And, most importantly, it’s covered by a single warranty: The SunPower Complete Confidence Warranty.
If you go solar soon, your new home solar system with storage will be installed and ready to start saving you money in time for peak solar production months.
