How does a home battery work?
Home batteries work cooperatively with solar energy systems. Over the course of the day, the system charges the battery while it powers the home. The battery will begin providing energy to the home during the transition to night as well as during any interruption to the grid or period of non-productivity.
Why would a homeowner need a home battery?
Simply put, batteries store energy from solar energy systems. If they live in an area that yields inconsistent or unpredictable productivity from their system, a battery can help mitigate these periods. Batteries also allow them to capture more of the energy that their system produces, and as a result, offer more energy independence.
How much does a home battery cost?
Cost will vary based on the size of the battery and the manufacturer.
Will they still be tied to the grid if they get a home battery?
Yes, they will still be tied to the grid even with a home battery. Despite still being on the grid, they'll have more flexibility, and coupled with a solar energy system, will have more choice over how and when they draw power from the grid.
Is there free maintenance on a home battery?
Specific maintenance needs and practices will depend on the battery type and manufacturer.
How long is the warranty for a home battery?
Warranties will vary depending on the battery type and manufacturer.
Are there any tax credits they can use to purchase a home battery?
In some situations, the federal tax credit has been applied to batteries installed with solar energy systems. Ask them to please consult with a tax professional to see if it will apply in their case.*
Can they get a home battery before they get solar?
At this time, the Mosaic loan for batteries is only available as a bundle with their solar energy system.
*Make sure they consult their tax advisor to assess their tax credit eligibility amount. Mosaic does not provide legal or tax advice.
