Everything You Need To Know About Batteries
Gain Your Independence
Batteries have been around for over a hundred years, but due to cost and unreliability issues, they remained impractical for homes and businesses to incorporate into their energy systems.
Now with advances in technology, the continued rising cost of electricity, and the advent of climate change, batteries are now on the front lines in the battle for independence, savings and clean energy.
Batteries With PV
You may be aware that Hawaiian electricity companies have managed to reduce the credits offered for excess daytime PV generation, so homeowners and business owners all over the State are equipping their PV Systems with Batteries to store their excess generation to be used at night. Furthermore, in the event of a multiday power outage, a Haleakala Solar and Roofing Energy Storage System automatically converts your PV System into an "offgrid" PV System with the ability to keep the lights on indefinitely.
Energy Storage Benefits
Batteries have become more stable and reliable while the costs have dramatically decreased making them the next frontier in the fight against high electricity costs and energy independence. In addition, if you connect batteries to your PV System their cost will receive the same Federal and State Tax credits as your PV System. And finally, what most homeowners and property owners are most excited about the added benefit of powering through an extended outage.
