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

Brightbox is the North County energy storage solution that puts you in control. It can turn on during an outage and will work to recharge until the grid’s 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 North County solar energy production and storage daily with the online dashboard and mobile app.
