Enjoy Peace of Mind with a Solar Battery System
Whether you've already gone solar or you're still considering installing a solar system on your Riverside home, now is a great time to be thinking about adding a battery backup system to your setup. Battery storage systems offer many great benefits and are a smart investment for Southern California homeowners who know all too well about rising energy costs and rolling blackouts.
With a battery backup system, you can:
- Keep and use more of the energy your solar panels use
- Make EV charging more affordable
- Avoid peak time rates by using your own surplus energy
- Enjoy peace of mind that you will still have power during a blackout
Make storage a part of your solar energy system and see how much more you could save. Call Sun Energy today at (909) 498-4515 to consult with a solar specialist.

The decision to add a battery backup to a home solar system depends on several factors and individual circumstances. Here are some considerations to help you evaluate whether it's worth it for your specific situation:
- Energy Resilience: Adding a battery backup system to your home solar system can provide energy resilience during power outages. If you live in an area with frequent power disruptions or unreliable grid infrastructure, a battery backup can ensure that you have access to electricity even when the grid is down. This can be particularly beneficial if you rely on medical equipment, have specific power needs, or simply want to maintain basic comfort during outages.
- Energy Independence: A battery backup system can help reduce your reliance on the grid by storing excess solar energy for later use. This means you can use stored energy during periods when solar production is low or during peak electricity pricing hours. If energy independence and reducing your reliance on the utility company is a priority for you, a battery backup can be a valuable addition to your home.
- Financial Considerations: Adding a battery backup system to a home solar system represents an additional upfront cost. It's important to evaluate the financial aspects and calculate the potential return on investment. Battery costs are declining, but they can still significantly increase the overall system cost. Consider factors such as the duration and frequency of power outages, potential savings from avoiding peak electricity rates, and any available incentives or rebates for battery installations.
- System Sizing: When considering a battery backup, it's important to determine the appropriate size based on your energy needs. The battery capacity should align with your desired level of backup power and the amount of energy your home consumes during an outage. Sun Energy can assess your energy consumption patterns and help determine the appropriate battery size for your specific needs.
- Environmental Impact: A battery backup system can help reduce carbon emissions by storing and utilizing renewable energy instead of relying solely on grid electricity, which may come from fossil fuel sources. If reducing your carbon footprint and promoting sustainable energy practices are important to you, a battery backup system can align with your environmental goals.
Ultimately, the decision to add a battery backup to your home solar system depends on your priorities, budget, and energy requirements. Consult with a professional solar installer at Sun Energy to evaluate your specific situation and get personalized advice based on your needs and goals.
