How Do Solar Batteries Work? 

Solar panels generate a lot of electricity—often more than a single home or business needs at a given time. Solar batteries let you store the excess electricity from your PV panels and use it when the sun is not shining, allowing you to use more of the electricity they generate. If your solar energy system is off-grid, battery storage is absolutely essential for power after dark, but they offer numerous benefits for grid-tied systems as well, including:

  • Blackout protection – For the safety of line workers, your solar panel system will automatically shut off during an outage, leaving you without power. However, with a battery system, you can isolate from the grid and operate in “island mode,” keeping your power on. 
  • Electric bill savings – You can strategically shift your home to battery power during costly time-of-use periods. This is called load shifting and helps you save money while reducing your reliance on utilities like PG&E.
  • Reduced carbon footprint – Most of the electricity from the grid is sourced from fossil fuels. By adding a solar battery to your renewable energy system, you’re maximizing your solar potential and using cleaner electricity for your home or business.
