Why Are Your Neighbors Adding Home Battery Storage?

Public Safety Power Shutoffs are an unfortunate reality in the Santa Cruz area. Battery Storage will detect grid outages and automatically power your home. Keep your lights on, phones charged and avoid the general inconvenience of outages with solar and battery backup. Plus, with recent utility rate changes battery storage will help you save even more over time.



Take full control of your energy usage by independently powering your home 24 hours a day. Your battery works by storing excess electricity generated by your solar panels so it’s available on demand, day or night.

Back-up Power

Your home battery will detect a blackout or power outage, disconnect from the grid and instantly restore power to your home in a fraction of a second. Most homeowners don’t even notice the power went out.

Time-of-Use (TOU) Billing

Avoid higher-cost utility rate charges by using the solar energy stored in your home battery during peak hours. These hours are defined by your utility and often occur when the utility grid is often overburdened.

Easy to work with and responsive to all questions, before and after the installation. Knew all the regulations, Fed, state, and city so there were no surprises in terms of cost. Worked well with the roofing company in terms of setting a schedule. Did the work quickly and cleaned up after themselves. Set up the app for me.

Keenan S and the SunPower team were the epitome of professionalism throughout the entire process of quoting, planning, installing, credits and rebates. To the penny, SunPower's quote was accurate. From our $1000 SunPower cash-back to our tax-rebate, everything went perfectly. Keenan is a great representative who believes in his company, says what he is going to do and does what he says.....as good as it get. Thank you Keenan!

The Solar Technologies staff worked hard as a team to deliver a great product from planning to sales, permitting, installation, and inspection. The project manager gave us timely updates on the process for our installation. The solar panels and battery storage have acted seamlessly to transition to backup power when we have had grid power outages due to planned and unplanned PG&E outages. The apps available for system monitoring give a record of power usage for the solar panels and battery. I highly recommend Solar Technologies for a custom solar project.

The whole team was very professional starting with the sales and engineering staff in dealing with pandemic related delays. As part of the original contract, Solar Technologies also arranged for a new electrical panel with an excellent contractor. The solar system installers did a very clean installation with no problems and the city inspection went without a hitch. Overall, a great experience and a great job.
