Connecticut Energy Storage & Management
Helping You Harness Energy in Connecticut & Westchester County
At PurePoint Energy, we are the experts in all things solar, including solar energy storage and management systems. Using battery storage for solar PV allows our clients to store solar energy to use during peak times and power outages, and to reduce their grid reliance. Also, by using the Lumin Energy Management Platform, homeowners can choose how to manage their solar production and backup supply.
Battery Storage for Solar PV
Your solar panels have one job: to collect sunlight and transform it into electricity. A solar panel has two main limitations. First, it can only make energy when the sun is shining. Second, it is unable, on its own, to store energy for later use.
One way you can store excess solar electricity instead of sending it back to the grid is with solar batteries. Our Connecticut solar experts are trained to install solar rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that can save the electricity produced by your solar panels. Although lead-acid batteries have a lower upfront cost, we recommend lithium batteries for several reasons.
Lithium-ion battery systems have several advantages, including:
- They can be installed practically anywhere
- They are inexpensive and readily available
- They have a small footprint
- They have a longer lifespan
- They require less maintenance
- They are much more efficient
Make Your Solar PV System All It Can Be with Energy Storage
Increase your home energy efficiency with backup batteries. Storing clean energy produced by your solar panels will keep you self-sustainable and less reliable on the grid. During power outages, you will have an emergency power supply to provide light and power other important appliances or electronics while the grid is down. Or simply power your property at night when your solar array is not producing electricity, if your goal is to be grid neutral.
We are certified installers for the following battery options:
- LG Chem
- Tesla Powerwall
A single battery typically won’t power every circuit in your home but will provide backup loads for selective circuits in an emergency. PurePoint Energy will help you determine the right solution, circuits to power, and battery size with close analysis. Contact our energy storage team at any time to learn more about the different energy storage options available to you. Just like our solar consultations, our battery quotes are 100% free.
