How the Program Works


  • During regular system usage: your home runs on energy produced by your solar system and complements it with power from the battery and/or the grid.
How it works - Regular Use


  • During an event: your battery will automatically discharge at your committed capacity. Meanwhile, you’ll still be able to source energy from the grid to keep the entire household running, uninterrupted.
How it works - Peak Demand Event


  • After an event: your solar system will automatically recharge your battery after the event ends.
How it works - Blackout
