New Jersey’s Authority on Solar Energy (732) 269-0308

Between winter storms and summer heat waves, the New Jersey grid is being pushed to its limit year-round, which means power outages are inevitable. As severe weather patterns continue, it’s only going to get worse. To protect your home and family, you need reliable home backup power! 

Residential solar panels with battery storage are the solution. With a solar plus battery system, you can keep your essentials running while the grid is down so you never have to worry about a power outage again.

How Solar Batteries Work

Solar batteries work by storing the excess energy your solar panels generate for later use. You can use the energy stored in your solar battery bank at any time, including during a power outage. 

Unlike a generator, solar batteries provide backup power without burning fossil fuels. They recharge automatically from your solar panels whenever the sun is shining, so you never have to worry about fuel shortages or delivery issues during an emergency—if the sun continues to rise, you will have backup power.

Why You Need a Solar Battery

Solar batteries help you get the most out of your solar energy system. The benefits include:

  • Self-sufficiency – The more power you produce and store yourself, the less you have to rely on your utility company. This is becoming especially important as NJ utility companies transition to time-of-use rate models, which increase rates when demand for electricity is highest (typically in the evening, when your solar panels are not producing power). With a battery, you can use stored energy during on-peak hours, avoiding increased rates.  
  • Backup power – Solar batteries allow you to keep your solar panels on during a power outage and provide reliable home backup power. 
  • 24/7 solar power – With battery storage, you can use stored solar power around the clock, even at night when your solar panels can’t generate electricity. 
  • Smaller carbon footprint – Solar storage batteries run on clean, renewable energy and are the most environmentally friendly option for home backup power. 
  • Incentives – Solar battery systems qualify for the 30% federal solar tax credit!
