Solar Plus Battery Backup
Keeping the Lights On
When The Lights Go Out, Will You Be Ready?
Solar plus Battery Backup Is Now Availble
Energy storage, also sometimes called “battery backup,” is seeing an increase in popularity in the Pacific Northwest. More families are deciding to prepare for when the lights go out and choosing to install solar plus energy storage solutions (solar+storage). The reason is simple when mother nature (e.g., storms and earthquakes) knocks down power lines the power to your home can be out for days or even weeks.
Already many homeowners turn to gas or diesel generators to restore power to their homes, but these generators can be loud and produce hazardous fumes dangerous to the environment and your health. In addition, in an event of extreme power outages fuel may be hard to come by. Don’t get caught in the dark. Watch the video below to learn how Sonnen energy storage solution can help your family keep the lights on.
