POWERHOME SOLAR always wants to do the right thing for its customers, and that includes future-proofing their homes with the latest solar technology. That’s why we emphasize including Generac battery storage with solar panel installs because batteries can help achieve that goal.
Because we feel strongly that battery storage is a key element in most solar systems to ensure our customers are purchasing the best product available, we are very proud of our battery attachment rate. This September, we reached a 97% battery attachment rate, which means that out of every 100 customers buying a solar panel system from us, 97 of those are adding batteries with their purchase! In fact, our partnership with Generac has been so successful, POWERHOME SOLAR was recognized as #2 in the nation in batteries installed (per KW basis) among residential installers on the 2021 Top Solar Contractor’s list!
The potential reduction of grid dependency is just one of a number of reasons why the Generac battery is an essential add to most solar systems. Think about it – any excess energy that’s produced by your solar panels can be stored in your battery for use when you need it, such as during a power outage, or at night, when your solar panels can’t produce any energy.
If you’re wondering how battery energy can work in tandem with grid energy, or how the battery can work on its own during a power outage, this video will be worth your while because of the level of detail!
Beyond providing protection in case of power outages, batteries give consumers a chance to offset higher utility company charges. Many utilities are starting to employ time-of-use rates, which means they charge more for grid electricity at times when it is more expensive for them to produce it to meet customer demand. By using power stored in your battery for your home’s protected loads during those times of day, you can use less from the grid and potentially save yourself some money in the process.
If you want to get American made solar with a Generac backup battery, POWERHOME SOLAR is the place to do that. We have the best team to install the battery in your home, and we’re happy to assist any inquiring minds.
