Project Description

Did you know that using home batteries can protect you and the environment? 

Home batteries of all sizes can be lifesavers during power outages. They don’t pollute like gas generators and are quieter and safer to operate. They will power your essential appliances when you need them most — and can be recharged with solar energy.

To power your home longer, consider a solar generator, which includes both a home battery and solar panels.

Order a home battery today, and help protect the planet!
