Off Grid Home FAQs:

I am building a home in a region without utility service. Can SimpliPhi power my home?

Pairing solar or wind power with SimpliPhi storage can provide you with a safe, reliable, long-lasting 24/7 source of power for your home. SimpliPhi's modular and scalable storage can be sized to provide all the energy your lifestyle and home requires today as well as into the future.

I received a quote for running lines to my property that was very expensive. Would solar+SimpliPhi storage be a more affordable way to go?

The cost of trenching power lines to a residence can be exorbitant if not prohibitive. Very often these costs, when applied to a solar+SimpliPhi storage system, have created significant savings at the time of the installation and over the life of the system. As an added benefit, an off-grid system allows you to maintain control of your power generation and storage and remain secure in the face of frequent power outages.

 

Will my home be energy secure if I’m not tied to the grid?

In a world where natural disasters and other threats to the grid are increasingly commonplace, taking control of your own power can actually provide greater energy security than the grid. Generate the power you need and store it to use it whenever you choose -- including during and after superstorms, wildfires and other events that take down the grid. As an additional benefit, SimpliPhi's mobile Big Genny and Little Genny emergency kits allow you to be prepared in the event of an evacuation and take your power with you.

Right now I live off grid and I have a generator. If I add solar and storage can I still use my generator?

SimpliPhi storage solutions are designed to work seamlessly with any source of power generation, including diesel and natural gas generators. Our AccESS plug-and-play unit, for example, includes an AGS (automated generator start) function to simplify storage+generator integration.
