Brightbox Powers Through Blackouts
Californians are placing increased value on solar backup energy. Sunrun residential solar systems with a BrightboxTM home battery will brighten your life during outages. When a blackout occurs or night falls, the battery turns on. A battery powers critical circuits in your home for approximately 8 to 12 hours, refuels with the sun and solar panels, and gives you energy freedom.21
A storage battery is how residential solar systems supply backup energy. Solar panels alone don’t provide backup power. The reason is rooftop systems are generally connected to the utility grid, which actually supply power to the home. Electricity generated by rooftop panels is typically sent to the grid for credit as in net metering. But when the grid goes down, the panels are automatically disconnected as a safety measure. This is when the solar battery automatically turns on to supply backup energy.
With premium solar panels and battery storage, you’ll power through blackouts with electricity from your battery that the sun recharges each day. Brightbox advantages include: 21,22
