Solar Battery Backup Systems

Solar battery backup solutions are an excellent option for homeowners who deal with frequent power outages and blackouts or are billed at a higher rate for power used during certain times of the day. These devices allow homeowners to store energy produced by their solar panels and then use it at a later time, typically either when the grid is down or when panels aren’t producing power.

How Does a Solar Battery Backup Work?

Solar battery backup systems are a great addition to any solar power system since it allows you to store the energy you’re producing for use at a later time.

Learn How Battery Backups Work

Solar Panels Produce Power

Solar panels convert photons from sunlight into DC power, which is converted into usable AC power by the inverter.

Excess Energy Charges Battery

The power produced by solar panels that are not used to power the home is stored in the battery for use at a later time.

Stored Energy Powers Home

Solar battery backups are discharged to power the home. This can be at night, during outages, or when utility rates are higher.

The Best Solar Battery Backup Systems

Astound Energy offers top-of-the-line battery storage solutions to ensure that you always have power whenever you need it. That means if the power goes out or if there is inclement weather you will still have the power to enjoy all of life’s luxuries without the worry!

Tesla Solar Powerwall Solar Battery Backup For Home

With Tesla’s Powerwall you can store solar energy generated during the day for use at any time. It is compatible with most solar systems, consists of a 13.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system, an integrated inverter, and software that intelligently dispatches electricity when it’s needed most.

Powerwall learns patterns in your energy usage and solar generation– using stored energy to avoid purchasing high-cost electricity. The unit mounts seamlessly on a wall or on the ground, indoors or outdoors, and is connected to the grid to export excess energy, maximizing your economic benefit.

As with many other home battery products, SunPower’s SunVault 13 kWh Storage system is sized for day-to-day use that intelligently dispatches electricity when it’s needed most. It is designed to work in tandem with a SunPower solar system. When your solar panels produce more electricity than you use in your home, you can store the excess electricity in the battery system instead of sending it back into the grid.

Once your battery system is fully charged any excess electricity is sent back to the grid. Later, when your panels aren’t producing enough electricity to meet your home’s needs, you can use the stored energy instead of having to buy it from your utility company.

Tax Breaks & Incentives Save You Money

Due to a number of amazing solar battery backup system incentives across the country, solar energy can actually turn you a profit in addition to generating bill savings that pay off the cost of the system. Take advantage of these awesome incentives now before they expire!

Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit

The Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) program offers you a tax credit worth 30% of the value of a solar power system installed through 2032! Plus, if the total value of the tax credit exceeds your tax liability for the given year, the excess value can be rolled over for up to 5 years! Take advantage of this very valuable incentive now!

Solar Renewable Energy Credits

Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SREC) programs that are offered at some state levels allow you to earn credits based on the energy production of your solar power system and you can then sell those earned credits on a secondary market for cash. There are also many states, municipalities and utility companies that offer tax credits, rebates, production-based credits, or cash payments!

Inflation Reduction Act

With the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act, the U.S. Energy policy is now supercharged - not only putting us on a path to reduce carbon pollution by 40% by the end of the decade - but also making it even easier for families to benefit from adopting solar and energy storage. The law not only restores the Solar Investment Tax Credit to 30% immediately and extends it through 2032 but also created a new 30% Energy Storage Investment Tax Credit! Additionally the law creates a new $4.3 billion whole home energy efficiency program along with a $4.5 billion home electrification rebate program for many working and middle-class families!
