SunVault Storage for Fresno & Bakersfield Solar Customers
Enjoy Peace of Mind, Reduce Peak-Time Charges, and Control Your Energy Usage with Ease
SunVault by SunPower’s battery back-up system can help ease the pain and fear of losing power, as well as adding the security of knowing that you can rely on your own energy generation and storage network. With SunVault, you can reduce your reliance on the utility grid during the times of day when rates are at their peak and can prevent the loss of power at night, on low-sunlight days, or during an electrical outage.
Why is Battery Storage So Essential?
Most people think that if you have solar, you aren’t relying on the utility company. The truth is, if you have a grid-tied system, even with solar panels you are still tied to the utility company to access the solar power you store with them.
This is where a battery backup becomes a necessity. When you can generate your own power, then store your own power in a back-up battery, that energy does not need to be stored on or supplemented by the grid - you own the power you store and can access it as needed. You will still have access to grid power, but you will be in more control and have more options on how to manage your own energy production. This is especially true with SunVault’s smart technology integration, which allows you to control energy usage from your mobile device. With energy produced and controlled entirely by your home solar system, you’ll potentially save even more money than you would with solar panels alone, and you’ll have access to backup power from energy stored for later use during peak hours.

How SunVault Works
As your SunPower solar panels produce energy for your home to use, they funnel any unused power into the SunVault battery instead of back into the electrical grid. Using intelligent software, SunVault will monitor your home’s energy usage and utility costs to determine what power source to use at what time to get you the most reliable power at the lowest cost. This maximizes your use of clean, renewable solar energy while helping you avoid peak-time charges that raise your utility bills. SunVault can also act as an automatic backup for all of your essential appliances in the event of a sudden power outage. This feature will seamlessly keep lights, refrigerators, and other fixtures powered without any input from you and can be customized to power the utilities that are most essential to your life.
SunVault Can Offer You:
- Direct control of your solar energy usage through Wi-Fi connectivity and intuitive software
- A backup source of power that kicks in automatically when your usual power source fails or runs out
- The ability to store days’ worth of energy in a compact space
- More independence from traditional electricity
One Battery can Provide Up to 3+ Days of Backup Power
In optimal conditions, and when paired with the efficient panels of the SunPower Equinox system, the SunVault can store enough solar energy to power your entire home for over 3 continuous days. This will not only protect your home in the event of a power outage but allow you to use clean, reliable solar energy when it might not otherwise be available, such as at night or during bad weather. Plus, with SunVault’s easy-to-use app, you can control when and how that backup energy is used to allow for maximum energy efficiency and savings.
