SunCommon has installed just a handful of early solar storage systems. As we pilot this offering and build out an affordable program, we’d love to keep in touch! Add your name to our list here:
SunCommon and Green Mountain Power are working to combine solar power with home energy storage through a discounted offering. Stay tuned!
Tesla Powerwall II – Coming Soon!
These back-up systems are quite different from “off-grid” systems. In fact, you remain quite connected to the grid, as we all are now, unless the power goes out. Then, the back-up system kicks on, drawing from sunshine stored in your battery. The battery continues to recharge as your solar panels produce power.
On days when the power goes out, we could keep the basic systems in our homes running – and not worry about milk spoiling in the fridge.
As important, storing energy at hundreds or thousands of homes across the state would mean a more stable and reliable grid. On bright, sunny, hot summer days – when there’s no chance of an outage – we could each sell a bit more power back to our utilities. Just when the utilities need it the most.
