Energy Storage FAQ

Have questions before reaching out? 

A single whole-home backup battery system, typically with a full charge of 13.5 kWh of energy storage, will usually last between 8 to 12 hours for a typical US household during a grid outage.

The main cons include high upfront costs, the need for dedicated space for installation, increased complexity in system design, and additional maintenance of parts.

Home battery backup systems charge from solar panels or the grid. During an outage, the battery disconnects from the main panel and the electrical grid, creating a self-sustaining personal grid that includes solar panels and essential household appliances.

The lithium-ion battery is considered the best option for home backup. Popular choices include the Tesla Powerwall and Enphase batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are preferred for residential solar power installations due to their compact design and efficiency.

Yes, home battery backup systems are generally worth the investment. They are environmentally friendly, easier to install, and cheaper to run long-term compared to standby generators. Additionally, they typically come with longer warranties, offering peace of mind for homeowners.
