“My battery system dropped my demand charge to almost zero last month.”

This is the most common use for a battery and provides the highest return on investment. A peak shaving battery does just what it sounds like… it’ll shave the top of your energy peak! An energy peak occurs daily when a large majority of residents come home from work and begin to use more electricity. This happens daily and the cost of electricity from the grid goes up with it. With this, you’ll be saving costs during the most expensive parts of the day!
Batteries with a back-up capability can provide your home with energy security, even when the grid goes down. You will select the critical loads to be backed up by the battery and your solar power. These critical loads will have power during an outage, when nobody else does. A back-up battery unit will also have the peak shaving capability built into it, so you can have best of both worlds!
Battery units are new to the average homeowner, so we know you may still have questions on how it works. Click here for a list of battery Frequently Asked Questions!
“I am providing energy to myself and it makes me feel better to know I am not totally a part of the utility infrastructure. With the battery storage, you will have power when nobody else does, if the grid goes down. To me, that is a really big deal.”

“Sean set me up with a peak load shaving battery to offset those high rates. The biggest reason I got the battery was the incentive of the SRP rebate, it cut the price in half and with the addition of the tax incentive… it was a great deal!”
