How it Works
Solar Panels turn sunlight into clean DC (direct current) energy.
The Inverter converts solar-generated DC electricity into AC (Alternating Current) electricity.
AC electricity passes through your Electrical Panel to power devices in your home.
The Battery converts excess AC electricity to DC for storage in its battery modules.
Your Meter monitors electricity used by your home and excess solar power fed into the electrical grid.
Your Utility keeps you connected to the local electrical grid.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it easy to determine how many batteries you need for your home? It all depends on the situation. Knowing how many batteries you need for your home depends on which of the benefits of battery backup interest you the most. Customers want a home battery to save money, be resilient, or be self-sufficient. Taking these into consideration will determine how many batteries you need for your home.
3 significant factors that can affect how many batteries you should get include:
- The Electricity Loads You Need Powered – Electricity load is anything that consumes electricity in your home. Knowing how much electricity you need to provide your appliances is very important. This will let you know what needs to be powered and if you’ll need more or less storage capacity. Because the amount of battery storage you need for your home is based on your energy usage.
- The Solar System’s Size/Production Ability – Next, you need to charge up your battery with electricity. You either pull it from the grid or charge it with your solar system. So it’s essential to know how much solar energy your panels produce and how much you’ll need to charge your battery system during the day. In case you need more storage capacity than your panels can fill.
- Are you More Concerned with Cost Savings or Convenience? – And lastly, just knowing what you want to get out of your battery system is vital in deciding how many batteries you need.
Solar battery pricing varies depending on battery model and brand. It’s common for an average-sized home battery backup system to cost between $500 and $20,000. How many batteries do you need to power your home and the installation cost.
Installation can take up to 1-3 days.
Yes, you can have a home battery storage system without solar panels. However, not many homeowners know that you can have batteries that will be charged from the power supplied by the grid to store in case of a power outage. Even without solar panels, homeowners can save money with just a battery because energy is time-dependent. Using the battery when utility companies charge a premium can save you money and help you reduce energy costs.
Most solar batteries last between 5 to 15 years. While the battery life is long, a replacement will be needed, especially if not you’re not providing care to your battery. It’s essential to know, like solar panels, that the quality of the battery and how well it is maintained plays a part in it. Ensuring you provide proper system maintenance will ensure maximum life expectancy.
