Solar Battery Storage

Unlock greater control over your power usage with our cutting-edge solar energy storage
Outage protection guaranteed
Control energy costs effectively
Seamless solar integration

Harness the power of the sun even when it sets

Keep the lights on during blackouts. The utility grid is aging, expensive, and susceptible to extreme weather, and a home battery backs you up with reliable solar energy.
Stay protected from potential increases in energy costs or surge pricing. Fulfill your energy needs today and support your growing needs when you add electric vehicles or your family grows.
Solar systems combined with a battery or multiple batteries enable you to harness an increased amount of the solar energy generated while reducing your reliance on the grid. Contribute to a brighter tomorrow by energizing your home with solar power.
Our advanced solar batteries seamlessly integrate with your solar panels, capturing and storing excess energy during the day for use at night or during outages.

Power meets efficiency with Tesla Powerwall

With 13.5 kWh of storage, these batteries can back up even more of your home during outages and maximize your energy efficiency when utility rates are highest. And, the Tesla Powerwall seamlessly integrates into your home with a sleek and compact design.

California, take control of your energy bills

Shift™, our non-backup battery, helps you maximize your savings by storing excess solar power during the day and shifting it to your home in the evening. Power your home affordably and predictably—storing and using power when you want.

Battery Storage FAQs

Your home battery or batteries will allow you to store the electricity your solar energy system produces during the day and use it when you need it most—such as in the evening during the time of use (TOU) peak pricing or when the electric grid fails due to an extreme weather event or physical damage to the equipment. (See below for more information on TOU peak pricing and whether it applies to your jurisdiction).

A solar battery or batteries can help you maximize the value of solar energy, protect your home from power outages, and help build a sustainable future by supporting the production of renewable energy.

In California, local regulations allow you to do more with your battery. To optimize your system's overall value, we've programmed the battery to automatically help customers get the most out of their solar system by capturing their solar generated electricity and “shifting” it to when they need it most. This innovative solution optimizes potential savings by increasing self consumption during peak hours when rates are highest and reducing low-value exports back to the grid.

And with our expert solar installation, you can ensure that your home is equipped with the best battery system tailored to your energy needs.

Many states and utility companies offer incentives, such as rebates or tax credits. 

One such incentive is net metering, which credits any excess power your solar system generates back to your electric bill. However, several states have chosen to adopt Time-of-Use (TOU) rates, which complicate how your net metering credits are calculated. Sunrun Shift can buffer you from peak TOU rates so that you may save even more on your electric bill.

Our rechargeable solar battery systems are designed to keep you on the grid during normal service times while providing reliable backup when the sun isn’t shining or during an outage. This is the most reliable and economical way to use your home battery system.

Like solar-only systems, the size of your battery system will depend on your unique battery capacity needs. Factors such as the amount of electricity you use at home and the devices and appliances you want to back up will play a key role in selecting your ideal battery storage capacity.

Home battery is a relatively easy installation. Each battery is about size of a water heater, and the battery system is mounted on a wall—typically next to your electrical panel inside your garage or outside your home.
