BACKUP YOUR WHOLE HOME WITH SOLAR + BATTERY SOLUTION
Power outages are simply part of our world these days. From rolling blackouts to lightning storms to simply spending more time at home—be the house on the block where the lights shine bright and the electric bills drop.
Electricity costs are rising across the country. And utilities charge more when they know you need it most. Instead, make your own clean energy, store the excess for peak times and power outages and break free from the power company grid games.
With SunVault™ Storage you can set your own power preferences, monitor system operation and savings with intuitive software, and ensure seamless transfers from grid power to battery power and back.
How solar + storage works
Watch this short video to see how combining a SunPower Equinox® solar system with SunPower® SunVault™ Storage can power your home with cleaner energy, lower your electric bills and keep the lights on when grid power goes out.
As your SunPower Equinox® system produces energy, it sends the electricity you're not using to SunVault™ Storage and/or sells it back to the grid for a credit on future electric bills.
Intelligent software monitors your solar, home energy use and utility rates to determine which power source to use—maximizing use of solar and reducing peak-time charges.
When the power goes out, SunVault™ Storage can provide seamless backup to power your essential appliances, such as keeping the lights on or running your refrigerator.
How much energy do i need to store to power my home?
similarly to solar-only systems, the size of your rechargeable solar battery system is determined by your individual energy needs and habits. Factors such as the amount of electricity you use at home and the devices and appliances you want to back up will play a vital role as you select the right battery storage solution for you.
Are there solar incentives i can get for solar storage batteries?
One of the best solar storage incentives is the Federal Solar Tax Credit. The Federal Solar Tax Credit will deduct 26% of the cost of your solar energy system from your federal taxes. Starting in 2021, the value of the tax credit will step down to 22%. After 2021, the tax credit for residential solar ends.
