If you want to get the most out of your solar panels, then a solar battery for your home is a must. Your residential battery will allow you to store energy for later use during nights, power outages, and other situations. At EcoMark Solar, we can install your solar home battery in Colorado in conjunction with your solar system.
When you reach out for a free solar proposal, our solar energy experts can discuss an array of battery options with you and find the right one for your needs.
Why You Need a Solar Battery for Your Home in Colorado
Solar home batteries are not required for every solar installation, but when the sun isn’t shining, your solar panels aren’t generating electricity. This means you need to supplement your solar-generated power with power from the grid.
Residential solar battery storage gives you the ability to become more self-sufficient and reduce your reliance on the energy grid (OEERE). You’ll benefit from your solar home battery in many ways, including:
- Maximize your solar tax credit – Batteries are eligible for the 26% Federal Tax Credit as long as they are paired with a solar installation.
- Around-the-clock power – Solar home batteries can sense when the power has gone down on the grid and will kick in within seconds to keep primary loads running.
- Lower energy costs – If your utility provider raises electricity rates, you can avoid that with a battery.
- Better monitoring – Combining your solar system with battery storage will help you better track the energy your system generates.
- Safe and simple usage – Solar home batteries are safe to use and easy to understand. Plus, they require very little maintenance.
Options For Your Solar Home Battery in Colorado
At EcoMark Solar, we have partnered up with a top manufacturer of solar products and battery solutions: Generac. These batteries can be installed at elevations of up to 9,834 feet and will still be warrantied, which makes them an ideal battery solution for Colorado homeowners. Other solar batteries can struggle at elevations common in the Centennial state.
Our Generac solar batteries are available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and storage capabilities. We currently offer 9 KW, 12 KW, 15 KW, and 18 KW Generac batteries.
In addition, we can program the Generac batteries for rate arbitrage. This allows your battery to discharge/use stored energy during the most expensive electrical times of the day to avoid higher utility bills from your provider.
Be sure to ask about other battery options during your solar consultation.
Installing Solar Home Batteries
At EcoMark, our solar installers have been expertly trained to install every battery solution that we offer. We have been installing solar home batteries in Colorado for decades and we understand what works and what does not in our climate.
Solar batteries need to be installed in a temperature-controlled environment due to their materials. In most Colorado residences, we install solar home batteries in heated garages, unfinished basements, or other areas.
Just as every solar panel installation looks a little different, the same can be said for solar home batteries. We’ll make sure you’re perfectly clear on the installation process from start to finish so you’re informed at every step.
