Solar plus Storage
Easy Backup Power for Nor'easters and Hurricanes
Homeowners in New England often see significant power outages from Nor'easters, hurricanes, high winds, severe thunderstorms and other natural events. Sometimes even human error — such as a traffic accident or a backhoe severing a powerline — can take down your grid power. Now, many across Massachusetts from the North shore down to the South shore are adding backup battery power to their rooftop solar panels. We now offer customized solar-plus-battery solutions that enable you to access the free, abundant power of the sun and reduces your reliance on fossil fuels. Installing batteries with Boston Solar is easy. We take care of everything from system design to installation.
Battery Storage 24/7
With battery storage, you can store solar energy generated during the day for use any time. During the day, the sun shines on your solar panels, charging your battery. At night, your home draws electricity from your battery, powering your home with clean, sustainable energy 24/7.
Why Battery Storage to Your Home Solar?
Adding storage to your residential solar system can give you access to a number of benefits:
- Increasing self-consumption of solar power generation - Batteries can store surplus solar energy during daylight hours and use that energy later when the sun is not shining.
- Load shifting - Batteries can charge during low rate periods when demand for electricity is lower and discharge during more expensive rate periods when electricity demand is higher.
- Back-up power - Assures power in the event of a grid outage.
