How does it work?

A battery storage system lets you store energy from the power grid or from rooftop solar. Battery storage systems are most effective when paired with rooftop solar, because the pairing enables households to store no-cost solar electricity generated during the day for use around the clock.

You can use a home battery to power any electric appliance in your home, so its benefits are maximized when more of your appliances are electric!
