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.

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*


All aspects of the project were handled very well, especially the help provided when severe weather delayed the final steps. Your people were extremely supportive and efficient on getting us in under the wire. The cost of our system will be more than offset by our reduced electric bills, and we are thrilled to play our part in reducing carbon footprints. I would recommend Newport Solar without hesitation.
