Climate change has increased U.S. wildfires. California alone was impacted by 14 of the 20 biggest wildfires on record in the past 15 years.11

California wildfires, along with their related outages and  Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS), can leave homes without electricity for hours or days at a time.

Brightbox can help you back up your entire home with a  Tesla Powerwall, or you can back up just the rooms you need with an  LG Chem solar battery.*

When the sun is out, Brightbox stores clean and affordable back-up power for later use.

Brightbox is the Downey battery storage solution that puts you in control. It can turn on during an outage and will work to recharge as many times as possible until the grid is restored.

No fuel, no fumes, no noise, no hassle.  Brightbox is a superior energy storage solution compared to loud and dirty generators.

You can monitor your Downey solar power production and storage daily with the online dashboard and mobile app.

All monthly plans include 24/7 proactive monitoring and maintenance to ensure your home solar energy system works smoothly. This perk sets Brightbox apart from the average solar battery in Downey, California.
