When the power goes out...
your solar can be your backup

Homes with the combination of solar and storage will enjoy the reliability of backup power during outages and they’ll be supporting a more reliable grid for their community.

I switched to solar to save money and become more energy independent. The more I can power my life with solar the better off I am. With the battery back-up, I can store sunshine to use during an outage making the most of my solar production.

It’s going to be a great back-up system. When power goes out, obviously there are some key things I’d like to keep going, like the alarm system, medical alert, the hot water heater, the food, just in order to to bridge the gap between the outage and whenever the power gets set back again.

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!

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.
