With extreme weather events, wildfires, and Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) becoming frequent realities, it’s more important than ever to have a reliable backup power source for your home or business. Solar batteries give you peace of mind by keeping your power on during a grid disruption.
The benefits of solar energy storage speak for themselves:
- Power essential appliances during a blackout
- Use stored power to avoid time-of-use and demand response charges
- Reduce your reliance on the electric grid and your utility
- Take your solar system off the grid for total energy independence
Six Rivers Solar specializes in solar battery systems for grid-tied and off-grid solar energy systems. We design the most innovative, top-of-the-line solar battery technology to keep your home, business, or cannabis growing operations up and running.

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. This makes it possible to power your home or business with solar energy 24/7 (depending on the size of your home solar battery bank).
If you’re tied to the grid, you can use your home solar battery storage system to strategically shift your home to battery power during time-of-use periods, when electricity rates are higher. This is called load shifting and helps you save money while reducing your reliance on the utility. If your system is off-grid, battery storage is absolutely essential for power after dark!
Batteries Keep Grid-Tied Solar Panels on During a Power Outage
For the safety of line workers, grid-tied solar electric systems must not feed power back into the utility lines during an outage. Therefore, if you don’t have a solar battery for your home or business, your solar system will automatically shut down when the power goes out. Grid-tied battery systems, on the other hand, include a transfer switch to isolate them from the grid during an outage, allowing the system to operate in “island mode”.
