Join the ConnectedSolutions program and get paid to keep the grid more stable
In Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, the ConnectedSolutions program helps to keep the grid stable by allowing homeowners with solar + battery systems to share energy when the grid needs it. And, you get paid to do it.
More of a Good Thing: Adding a Battery to Your Solar
By adding a SolarEdge Energy Hub inverter + SolarEdge Energy Bank battery system to your home, you become less reliant on the electric grid and get smart insights into energy consumption. This means more savings on electricity bills. But there’s more: going solar means access to ConnectedSolutions, the current 30% ITC tax credit tier (as may be changed by the legislator) and state incentive program such as Massachusetts SMART.
Ask your installer, or be connected with a solar expert for the incentive program today.
How It Works
- Regular Use – your home will use energy from your PV and complement it from the battery and/or the grid.
- Peak Demand Event – your battery will discharge at the maximum supported power. If your home needs more than the available power from the sun and the battery, you can still use the grid. The battery will recharge from your PV after the event ends.
- Blackout – your battery will be used to keep the lights on during power outages.
The program runs for 5 years over summer season:
