The Importance of Solar Batteries in California

More and more California homeowners are using solar battery storage to keep their homes powered during power outages. This method comes with automatic battery backup and has become increasingly popular. With the recent updates to NEM policy, solar batteries can also help homeowners make the most of their solar energy and reduce their dependence on the grid.

Energy Independence

By adding a battery to a home solar system, you can store excess energy for use later in the day. For many people, this is now a more effective way to save money with solar than relying on net energy metering credits from the utility.

Resilience

Solar battery storage will provide automatic backup power to your home during an outage. As the occurrence of planned and unplanned outages increases across the state, going solar and adding a battery is an important protection for your home power.

Solar in California

California is one of the best states for solar panels. The Golden State can experience up to 284 days of sunshine per year, and thanks to California’s pro-solar policies and incentives, solar has become an affordable option for most budgets. In fact, as of 2020, all new home builds are now required to include solar energy. So, not surprisingly, California is the leader in solar energy generation among all 50 states, with 1.5 million panel systems installed as of September 2022.

In a state with a massive population and an ever-increasing demand for energy, it’s no wonder that more than 22 million people have been impacted by blackouts in the past two decades. Obtaining a battery with solar in California may shield you against outages, reduce your dependence on diminishing non-renewable resources, save you money, reduce the stress in your life, and help preserve the natural beauty of this coastal state.

Why Join the Solar Movement?

We touched lightly on some of the reasons to go solar above, but if you’re not convinced yet, continue reading to learn the details about how solar can provide you with peace of mind and put money back in your pocket.

Reduce Electricity Costs

Lower Electricity Costs

Over the past 10 years, California’s energy prices have steadily increased, and there’s no end in sight. With energy costs approximately 30% more than the national average, you need an alternative option that won’t eat into your monthly budget. By switching to solar and investing in a backup battery, you can offset time of use (TOU) rates and lower your utility bills.

Peace of Mind During Power Outages

Power outages, whether planned or unplanned, seem to happen at the most inconvenient times. During periods of severe weather, powerful wind can cause debris to damage power lines and cause fires. In these instances, utility companies will need to turn off power to homes to prevent these disasters. Intentional outages are referred to as Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS).  With a solar system and battery, you can keep your food fresh and your family comfortable with backup power throughout a PSPS.

Solar helps with power outages by decreasing demand on the grid during peak load times and allowing you to power your home with a battery during blackouts. Using a solar system in conjunction with a backup battery may help keep your lights on even when the rest of your neighborhood goes dark.

Power Outages Affects Mindset
Increase Home Value

Increased Property Value

Having a solar panel makes your house a more attractive prospect to home buyers. Much like finishing a basement or renovating a kitchen, installing a solar panel increases the value of your home! In general, California home solar panels can raise home values by 2% to 4%, depending on where you live and the size of the system.

Reduce Reliance on Non-Renewable Energy Sources

Relying on non-renewable sources of energy like fossil fuels is dangerous for multiple reasons. The first is that these energy sources hurt the environment, as they emit greenhouse gasses that lead to climate change. Additionally, if society continues to rely on them, they will eventually run out, as they are non-renewable. On the other hand, solar energy is emissions-free and will be available for our use as long as the sun exists!

California Solar Incentives

California Solar Incentives and Rebates

As a California resident, you can reap some significant benefits by switching to solar. Some of the current incentives offered include state-wide net metering, the federal solar tax credit, utility incentives, property tax exemptions, and more. Check with your local government to find out the eligibility requirements for the incentives offered in your area.

California Solar Panel Installation FAQ

If you still have questions or concerns about solar energy, check out the answers to our customers’ most frequently asked questions below.

How does the weather affect solar panels in California?

Many people worry that upgrading to solar will mean a loss of power during cloudy, rainy, or foggy weather conditions. In reality, solar panels in California work in every weather condition. They can absorb partially blocked or reflected rays of sunlight, which penetrate the rain and keep your panels working. Rain can even help your solar performance by rinsing off dirt and grime. During cloudy days, the reduced temperature can also boost your system’s efficiency! And don’t worry about wind — when you have your panel professionally installed, you can rest easy knowing it’s not going anywhere.
