Batteries keep your lights and essential appliances running when the grid goes down. Pairing batteries with a solar array is an effective way to maximize the benefit of solar, while charging batteries and keeping you ready for a grid outage.

NEW: Batteries are now eligible for a 30% Federal Tax Credit through 2032.

Security – Backup Protection

Unlike generators, batteries provide clean power, require no maintenance, don’t burn fossil fuels or make any noise. A battery system brings extra security to you and your family during a grid outage by powering essential loads in your house.  Use a battery system to keep your lights, plugs, refrigerator, security system, and even your heating system running during a power outage.

Renewable Power

Batteries reduce your reliance on the grid because they allow you to store energy for use during a power outage. When paired with a solar array, this provides a clean and complete renewable energy solution. Your batteries will help to reduce your environmental impact; in Rhode Island, you can also receive financial benefits for your participation in the Connected Solutions Battery Program.

Monitoring & Control

With comprehensive monitoring built into the system, you will know your up-to-date consumption, solar production, and battery status. Battery systems automatically take over in the event of an outage; with monitoring and control, you will have the confidence of being ready.

Batteries & Solar

Pairing a battery with a solar installation is a great way to maximize your incentives and get the most out of your solar installation. At Newport Solar we’re experts at designing a battery system that complements your solar array to maximize your homes performance and your financial benefit.

Note: This is a Supplemental Service – Newport Solar provides battery installation services to both past clients and clients who wish to include a battery installation in parallel with their solar installation*
