How Solar Provides Certainty & Independence in Uncertain Times

In these times of uncertainty such as power outages, increasing energy bills, and other financial concerns; solar energy is an effective, positive and powerful solution, providing homeowners comfort and peace of mind. The good news is that homeowners can choose solar over high utility charges because solar is proven to reduce or eliminate electric bills.

Why Invest In Smart Home Technology?

Now more than ever solar technology make sense, from smart home technology to backup battery systems. These items are essential to managing home resources like power production to storage backup and energy management. Smart homes are the technology of the future that is starting to radically change the way we live even today. It may surprise you what kinds of devices come equipped with smart home technology these days, and likewise just what might be possible with them.

Integrating Solar & Your Smart Home System

With so many of our appliances and devices now becoming part of this “Internet of Things”, as the smart home network is called, it would only seem logical that your modern energy technology would become part of the network as well. Indeed, solar technology can also be integrated into your smart home system, and this can offer you a tremendous number of benefits when it comes to energy efficiency, saving you money and providing energy independence. Imagine your home not only powering itself but using a battery to store excess solar energy for use later, making it available on demand.

How Does A Battery Backup Work?

A backup battery can detect an outage and automatically kick into power your home in a fraction of a second and without interruption to household energy. If you have solar and a backup battery, then the solar energy will continue to power the household and recharge the battery all in one. Without a battery backup system, solar will not function during a power outage or disruption.

Backup Battery Systems Provide Security From:
  • Power outages
  • Blackouts
  • Brownouts
  • Power shutdowns due to fire restrictions

With power outages becoming more frequent, it is time to consider owning and managing your own power with a smart home energy management system. Imagine saving money and also having the peace of mind that your smart home is seamlessly handling energy production and management of household appliances and even storing energy when the grid fails or is shut down due to fire restrictions or infrastructure maintenance.

How Do Smart Home Devices Work?

By enabling networking and Wi-Fi compatibility, smart home devices can communicate and control one another automatically through input via things like a smartphone app or even the power of your voice with a digital assistant. Some smart home devices such as SunPower Equinox™ and Tesla Powerwall even have the ability to “think” for themselves using carefully designed algorithms to make automatic changes for you to encourage energy efficiency and timesaving.

The SunPower Equinox™

The SunPower Equinox™ system is the only complete home solar system that is designed and engineered by one company. From the highest efficiency panels available to energy monitoring software, every component is designed to work together perfectly. Being energy independent is easy, it lowers bills and increases home value. Energy independence starts with SunPower panels combined with Tesla Powerwall.

What Is A Tesla Powerwall?

Tesla Powerwall is a customized solar-plus-battery solution that helps you save more of the energy you use so you can take advantage of it when you need it. During the day, the sun shines and your SunPower® solar panel system continues to produce an abundance of clean electricity, which is then stored by Tesla Powerwall. At night, when your panels stop producing energy, your home then draws electricity from Tesla Powerwall, giving you the ability to live on clean, sustainable energy 24/7!
