Home Energy Storage
power storage represents one of the most vexing energy problem of our times. Electricity disappears unless it is used almost immediately after it is generated. This forces electric grid operators to engage on a constant balancing of supply and demand. And when the scales tip toward scarcity, electricity prices spike, a misfortune that occurs most often on hot days when we use a lot of air conditioning.
Fortunately, better batteries and other smart energy technologies are beginning to solve the storage problem.
The benefits of energy storage are:
Compact, Safe and Durable.
EfreGreen is making the latest advancements in battery technologies available to you. The actual battery unit is about the size of a solar power inverter, and will be mounted on the wall in your garage or near your electrical panel.
Be Prepared for Anything
Your battery system will provide your home with power if the utility grid goes down. A fully charged battery will power basic home needs for a few days and a solar powered home can recharge the battery from the sun to run indefinitely.*
A fully charged battery provides enough energy for your essential needs during an emergency.
- Run Your Refrigerator Make sure you don’t lose all the food in your fridge during a power outage.
- Charge Your Cell Phone Stay in touch with loved ones, news, and emergency response when you need it most.
- Provide Basic Light Not being in the dark can make an emergency situation safer and less stressful.
- Home Security Ensure any systems protecting your home and property are up and running.
Reduce Your Electric Bill
An additional benefit of energy storage is to reduce peak-usage charges on your utility bill. Some utilities offer Time-of-Use (TOU) rate plans in which the price of electricity varies based on the hour of the day. Rates are higher during the afternoon when electric demand is at its “peak” across all utility customers.
A storage system may help you save more money by drawing power from your battery instead of from the grid during higher rates peak hours. You can then recharge your battery during lower rate, off-peak hours.
