Battery Backup with Sonnen

Think the Tesla Power Wall is cool?

Check out battery backup with Sonnen. The SonnenBatterie eco is an energy storage solution for your home that uses intelligent software to manage energy throughout the day – saving you money, providing backup power and enabling you to use your solar power at night. These lithium-ion batteries have a 10-year warranty and are already being installed world-wide.
 
In Oregon, the two main reasons people request battery backup is emergency preparedness and/ or the burden of frequent power outages in rural areas.
 
Many people considering going solar ask, “if the grid goes down will my solar system keep making energy?” In the event of a grid failure, whether by natural disaster, extreme weather, or a blackout, solar panels no longer produce energy for your home. For safety reasons, your solar system will automatically shut off when the power goes out; unless they have a place to store the energy.
 
Solar combined with battery backup systems seamlessly keeps the power on during outages, replacing noisy outdated backup generators. Keep in mind this power is limited to critical loads such as basic lights, outlets, a well-pump, and a refrigerator.
 
Battery storage will definitely come down in price as manufacturers improve the technology. We encourage our customers to go solar first to take advantage of the incentives currently available. Battery backups systems are often backwards compatible, meaning they can be added after the initial solar installation. Battery backup systems also eligible for the 30% Federal ITC (Solar Investment Tax Credit).
