High demand for electricity in summer and winter, paired with unpredictable weather, has put Texas at a higher risk of blackouts—like the major impacts caused by back-to-back winter storms, Uri and Viola.13
To protect the whole grid from going down during snowstorms, The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) imposed rolling blackouts, which left millions of homes without electricity for days.14,15
When the sun is out, Brightbox can store clean, safe, and affordable back-up power for later use.
Brightbox is the Dallas battery storage solution that puts you in control. It can turn on during an outage and will work to recharge until the grid's restored.
Unlike generators, Brightbox doesn't run on fossil fuels which produce carbon monoxide (CO) that's poisonous and dangerous for your health.16,17

All monthly plans include 24/7 proactive monitoring and maintenance to ensure your system runs smoothly. This perk sets Brightbox apart from other solar batteries in Dallas.
