SWITCH TO SUNPOWER® SOLAR WITH SUNVAULT™ STORAGE – DON’T GET LEFT IN THE DARK
PROTECT YOURSELF FROM EXPENSIVE UTIITY RATE HIKES AND POWER OUTAGES
SunPower® SunVault™ Storage System is a great opportunity for homeowners to better utilize their solar system production, save money, and keep the prolonged PG&E outages from leaving you in the dark. Keep your lights on even when there is a power outage. Utilize Home Battery by storing and shifting power usage to times when more is consumed and utility prices are at their peak, reducing high-cost energy bills from the utility.
One of the biggest anxieties that potential and existing solar customers alike deal with is the fear of suddenly losing power when the sun goes down. On their own, solar panels have no method of storing energy for later use. But there is no need to worry about lost power when you have a SunVault system to rely on.
SunVault by SunPower’s battery back-up system can help ease the pain and fear of losing power, as well as adding the security of knowing that you can rely on your own energy generation and storage network. With SunVault, you can reduce your reliance on the utility grid during the times of day when rates are at their peak and can prevent the loss of power at night, on low-sunlight days, or during an electrical outage.
BENEFITS OF INSTALLING SUNPOWER® SUNVAULT™ STORAGE
SUNVAULT™ STORAGE TO BACK-UP POWER DURING GRID OUTAGES.
Do not let PG&E's planned blackouts leave you in the dark. Keep your lights on with solar and battery storage, even when PG&E’s grid fails. During Utility black-outs, typical utility customers, including those with solar, will be without power. SunVault Storage System allows you to store electricity and back-up critical loads such as your refrigerator, lights, and essential items, all while keeping your solar energy system operating and producing power.
SUNVAULT™ STORAGE FOR USE DURING ON-PEAK PERIODS.
Utility Companies are changing their pricing model and moving ALL residential customers to Time-of-Use Rates. This change is expected to increase energy costs for nearly every homeowner. With a SUNVAULT™ STORAGE System, you can protect yourself against high energy costs by storing/using electricity produced by your solar energy system at any time of day.
TAKE BACK FREEDOM AND CONTROL
Produce your own energy so you are not relying on the utility grid to power your home. Solar is a renewable resource that generates clean, green energy for your home. Help the planet (and your bank account) by switching to solar.
Why is SUNVAULT™ STORAGE So Essential?
Most people think that if you have solar, you aren’t relying on the utility company. The truth is, if you have a grid-tied system, even with solar panels you are still tied to the utility company to access the solar power you store with them.
This is where a battery backup becomes a necessity. When you can generate your own power, then store your own power in a back-up battery, that energy does not need to be stored on or supplemented by the grid - you own the power you store and can access it as needed. You will still have access to grid power, but you will be in more control and have more options on how to manage your own energy production. This is especially true with SunVault’s smart technology integration, which allows you to control energy usage from your mobile device. With energy produced and controlled entirely by your home solar system, you will potentially save even more money than you would with solar panels alone, and you’ll have access to backup power from energy stored for later use during peak hours.
How SUNVAULT™ STORAGE Works
As your SunPower solar panels produce energy for your home to use, they funnel any unused power into the SunVault battery instead of back into the electrical grid. Using intelligent software, SunVault will monitor your home’s energy usage and utility costs to determine what power source to use at what time to get you the most reliable power at the lowest cost. This maximizes your use of clean, renewable solar energy while helping you avoid peak-time charges that raise your utility bills. SunVault can also act as an automatic backup for all of your essential appliances in the event of a sudden power outage. This feature will seamlessly keep lights, refrigerators, and other fixtures powered without any input from you and can be customized to power the utilities that are most essential to your life.
One SUNVAULT™ STORAGE can Provide Up to 3+ Days of Backup Power
In optimal conditions, and when paired with the efficient panels of the SunPower Equinox system, the SunVault can store enough solar energy to power your entire home for over 3 continuous days. This will not only protect your home in the event of a power outage but allow you to use clean, reliable solar energy when it might not otherwise be available, such as at night or during bad weather. Plus, with SunVault’s easy-to-use app, you can control when and how that backup energy is used to allow for maximum energy efficiency and savings.
