3 Reasons to Love Brightbox - Solar Battery Storage in San Diego

1. Solar Panels and San Diego - A Perfect Match

If there’s one thing San Diegans can agree on, it’s having the most beautiful weather in the world. But with electricity rates that are almost 38%2 higher than those in the rest of the United States, living in paradise is far from free. Thankfully, these “ good weather taxes” come from Southern California enjoying an average of 266 days1 of sunshine each year - premium conditions for solar energy production.  

While we can’t do anything about the weather tax on your next case of craft beer, we can help you harness that sunshine to save money on your monthly electric bill.

2. Protection From Rising Energy Prices

As California Utilities transition to the Time-Of-Use (TOU) rate plan, electricity prices in San Diego are expected to double during peak demand hours. Using the Brightbox Solar Battery Service in San Diego saves you money by storing the clean, low-cost energy produced by your solar panels during the day. When prices go up, Brightbox smart technology automatically adjusts by sending the stored energy back to the grid in exchange for credits you can use to offset peak prices. Giving you clean, renewable energy when you need it at prices you can afford.

3. Peace of Mind During Unexpected Outages

The grid infrastructure in San Diego is not only outdated, it’s vulnerable to the natural disasters that are becoming increasingly frequent in Southern California. Avoid the stress to your wallet and mind with the Brightbox Solar Battery Service. Brightbox stores energy throughout the day not only for use when prices are high but also provides reliable power to the things you need most during an outage.
