Ipsun Solar provides home battery storage solutions for the residential and the commercial market and is proud to be a certified Tesla Powerwall installer. Paired with solar, a system for storing energy can let you truly use your solar all the time, dramatically reducing reliance on fossil fuels and the grid.
Storage solutions can meet a few different kinds of energy goals. The most common purpose for battery systems integrated with solar energy systems are:
A grid-connected system that can be turned into an off-grid micro-grid when the utility grid is down. Responding quickly and automatically to outages, a battery storage system involves less noise than a generator and no expensive fuel or exhaust.
Some utilities charge more for the energy you pay than they can pay you for your excess solar power at times when you’re using less than you’re producing. In this scenario, it makes sense to avoid “exporting” solar to the grid, so the customer can configure a backup battery system to store surplus solar power to use a later time – after all, it’s worth more to you to use than it is to contribute to the grid if you can’t get retail rate for it!
If the utility charges peak prices, use a storage system to charge a battery system from the grid when electricity from the grid is cheap and use the power stored in the batteries when the price of electricity from the grid is high. Several localities require the power generated from a solar system to be used onsite. A battery system is then designed to store solar power generated during the day and consume it in the morning or the evening.
There are many types of batteries on the market. These vary in both the chemicals they use (and their safety factor and weight related to their chemistry) and in the target applications they are used for, whether grid tied or off-grid. Ipsun is a certified Tesla PowerWall installer in Virginia, Maryland and DC.
Energy storage means taking full advantage of the solar energy system you love, throughout the day and year:
Did you know that Maryland offers an energy storage tax credit? It’s valued up to $5,000 in incentive dollars and applies as long as the battery is at the taxpayer’s primary residence. Learn more about the homeowner and non-residential energy storage incentives in Maryland. Read about including your energy storage installation purchase in your federal solar tax credit filing as well! (We do not give tax advice, so we recommend seeing your accountant.)
Commercial battery energy systems are a great idea, and they can just be a little more complex than residential energy storage systems. That’s why for commercial storage services, we recommend you talk to us directly:
