Energy storage (batteries) is the fastest developing element of renewable energy today. A battery storage system that is properly integrated with your PV Solar Array will provide you with the ability to control how and when you choose to use your energy. These systems remove uncertainty from the equation and provide you with peace of mind and additional cost benefits.

Benefits of Adding Battery & Energy Storage
Adding Battery & Energy Storage Provides Critical Benefits to Commercial & Residential Properties Including:
Optimizing your PV system by capturing excess energy produced to be used later on site
Allows you to use clean, self-generated power in your home or business
Providing greater independence & autonomy from the grid
Provides backup power to protect your property from a power outage using solar and storage
Lowers your utility costs by utilizing more of your own solar
Maximize the Value of Solar Energy
During the daytime, while many people are away from the home at work or school, your solar energy system may produce more power than the home needs. Many Georgia utility companies only give wholesale credits for solar energy sent back to the grid. This means that excess solar power sent back to the grid loses some of its financial value compared to when it is used in the home.
Your battery or energy storage system can ensure that you maximize the value of your solar energy system by ensuring every clean kWh that your solar energy produces gets used in the home.
How Does Battery Storage Work?
- Load-shifting: Storing excess energy generated by PV to be used at a later time (typically at night)
- Back-up: Enabling your home or business to sustain power during a utility grid outage or commonly known as a "blackout"
- Federal tax credit of 26% applies towards all costs of battery installation when installing within the same year as PV
*The federal tax credit has upcoming changes. Creative Solar USA does not warrant or guarantee rebates, grants, credits, awards, or ROI.
