How Solar + Battery Works
As your solar system produces electricity, your battery will charge itself and the excess energy will power your home.
If your solar system produces more power than your home needs and your battery is fully charged, that excess electricity will go back through the grid and your account will be credited.
- You will use that credit at night or anytime when the power is on, but your system can’t produce all the electricity your home needs.
- In the event of a power outage, your battery will seamlessly supply your home with stored energy.* You decide what appliances are critical to connect to the battery.
- While the sun is out, your panels will continue to produce energy, recharging your battery so you can use the available battery energy, uninterrupted, until power is restored.

What is solar energy?
Solar power is energy that converts the sun (sunlight) into electricity or heat. There are two main types of solar energy technologies:
Solar thermal converts solar radiation into thermal energy (heat), which can be used to create steam to drive an electricity generator.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) converts sunlight directly into electricity, and the PV system can be installed on rooftops, and integrated into building designs and vehicles. Solar PV panels are currently the most widespread type of solar PV technology
