Battery Storage & EV Charging
A New Relationship to Energy
The value of energy has shifted under our feet. Solar energy systems to date have largely been measured by financial returns. Because of the Texas winter storm and the realization that we’re at risk of future outages, we now measure solar energy in terms of wellbeing. For many families, that means having the ability to store energy and use it to charge an electric vehicle.
System design for solar plus battery storage has more nuance than solar systems by themselves. Would you like to know how a half-day power outage or a two-day power outage might affect your energy access? Talk to a member of our team.
