Your solar panels may affect your home insurance. Since solar panels add value to your home, you’ll likely need to increase your insurance policy — that way, your solar panels are covered in the event of an accident. You’ll also want to be sure to check your policy to ensure that solar panels are covered (they typically are) and review the instances in which your insurer will pay out for damage.

Home Battery Backup Systems

Backup power is a system that connects to electricity sources, typically solar panels and the electric grid, to store excess power and return it to your home when you need it, generally because of a power outage during an emergency. In most cases, your backup power supply will come from a generator or a battery. Today’s solar batteries are also intelligent energy management systems that can optimize your home’s energy usage to take advantage of utility time-of-use plans or to ensure that your electric car is charged with solar power.

Backup Power Systems We Offer:

  • Solar battery backup power systems including Tesla Powerwall
  • Home generators
