What Is Battery Storage?
Battery storage is a fantastic, technical innovation that stores the extra energy your solar panel system gathers to be used when you need it or in the case of a power outage. Your system will also strategically sell some of that excess energy during peak hours, earning back extra money! The best way to find out if a solar battery system is best for you and your home is to ask your local solar company, Semper Solaris. Our team will help you choose the right battery storage system for your home, so you can start storing and saving today!

California electric companies have begun to implement planned rolling blackouts to help prevent wildfires. With wildfires growing more frequent and more deadly, and with electrical issues occasionally playing a part, electric companies are taking steps to prevent future fires.
During times of high fire danger, such as periods of high winds and low humidity, electric companies will notify residents of planned blackout periods. All power will be shut off in certain areas, and will only be restored when the danger has decreased. For some areas, this could be a matter of days until power is available again.
By gathering energy from solar panels and storing it, people all over California can do their part to help prevent wildfires without sitting in the dark.

Battery storage is the best way to be prepared for these planned rolling blackouts. Semper Solaris offers solar panel systems with battery storage, including the most in-demand battery, Tesla Powerwall.
Installing a solar battery is the ultimate return on investment. Battery storage is an amazing innovation where extra energy that your system gathers can be stored and used when you need it.

Not only are you able to keep your power on for 7+ days, but you are also earning credit with the electric company when you sell back surplus energy.
