Solar + Batteries: How Does it All Work?

Amid unpredictable weather and prolonged power outages, batteries have become a highly desirable component to pair with your solar installation – giving you resiliency when the grid goes down. On top of that, with energy bills rising by an average of 6% annually, integrating solar and battery solutions can result in significant long-term savings. There are several options to explore, and we're eager to guide you through the process in our latest installment of "Solar in 60 Seconds."

Sandbar's Microgrid: Powering a Better Future

The time is now to invest in a sustainable electricity system. In 2018, we designed and installed a microgrid to effectively power our large office and warehouse (read case study here). This independent energy source utilizes solar panels, an energy storage system, and a natural gas generator to supply clean, renewable energy to our facility. We no longer rely on utility companies for electricity and are therefore not affected by power outages.

At Sandbar, we are committed to “going green” and making our community and the world a better place for generations to come through the use of resilient energy. Are you ready to learn how your home or business can benefit from energy storage systems? Join us today, and power a better future.

Your bill is getting up there. Let us help you get it back down.
