When you add solar and batteries to a home, you create what’s called a microgrid. Microgrids facilitate off-grid power, which establishes a safe space where family members and friends can gather and have access to important resources during the event of a blackout.
With temperatures in Texas becoming more extreme every year, a prudent decision would be adding solar and batteries to your home. Not only will your family stay comfortable during the course of a blackout (which may become more likely as we continue to break energy demand records in the winter AND summer), but you’ll also be protecting yourself from further energy cost increase (which rise every year).
Texas residents have already seen a 70% increase in their energy costs this past year, and it’s likely to continue increasing with record-breaking temperatures and demand. Solar allows Texans to lock in electric rates and shield families from market volatility spikes. Savings begin in month one and payback periods for Texas range from 4 to 7 years on average.
