Keep The Lights On When the Grid Goes Dark

With energy storage comes peace of mind and security during a blackout, as well as cost savings every other day of the year.

On Grid Home FAQs:

In many locations, utilities have:

  1. Reduced the rates they pay for solar power that is exported to the grid;
  2. Applied demand charges based on a home’s peak energy use during a given month; or
  3. Assigned time-of-use rates that adjust the cost of electricity throughout the day.

Homeowners who are on a time-of use-rate or an electric vehicle rate, can charge PHI batteries when energy is cheaper (for example at night) and discharge energy when energy is more expensive. By enabling homeowners to shift their use of grid electricity to less expensive times, SimpliPhi storage can significantly reduce utility bills.

With extreme weather events, wildfires and other threats to energy security becoming more frequent, SimpliPhi storage can provide peace of mind. With our modular and scalable design, SimpliPhi battery banks can be designed to power your entire home or just the appliances and communication devices you consider critical in the event of a power outage. When the grid is unavailable, you can still have all the power you need.

All over the world, generators are used as back up power for homes. But the truth is, during catastrophic events, propane or diesel is often in short supply and expensive. Combining PHI batteries with your generator can create fuel savings and extend your available reserves, as well as cut down on environmental and noise pollution. SimpliPhi's turn-key residential solutions such as the AccESS and PowerBank have a built-in automatic generator start (AGS) to optimize your generator's performance with grid and/or PHI battery power.

If your home PV system is connected to the grid, you will lose access to all your electrical generation during a power outage. Adding SimpliPhi storage to your solar array stores excess power for you to access during an emergency. Storing excess solar power can also provide a greater return on your renewable energy investment, particularly in regions where utilities have unfavorable rate structures, such as demand and time of use charges. PHI batteries also allow you to draw from your storage for power at night and during times of inclement weather. Combining solar plus storage allows you to generate and consume your own power on demand, rather than relying solely on the utility.
