Why Invest in Backup Power with Rural
WHY USE BACKUP POWER?
A solar battery can be an important addition or upgrade to your solar power system. From saving you money to protecting you from power outages, many people choose to go with solar batteries for the sake of convenience.
Solar batteries allow you to reduce your utility bill by bypassing the grid or going off-grid altogether. With around-the-clock power, flat rates, and no noise, it’s a sold option if you’re looking to upgrade.
Use electricity generated during the day later on rather than relying on utility for power.
Safe from Local Outages
If the power goes out in your neighborhood, block, or street, you’ll still enjoy the benefits of power.
Go Off-Grid/Reduce Grid Cost
Take your home completely off the grid or reduce grid costs, saving you money in the long run.
No Noise Pollution
No noisy generators or machines; simply solar, right from the comfort of your home.
HOW DOES BACKUP POWER WORK?
Normally, when your solar panels generate excess electricity, that power is sent off to the grid and you gain “credits.” However, that power isn’t yours to keep as it is tied to the grid.
With a battery backup, you not only get to keep that extra power, but you are protected from power outages, pay next to no utility bill, and have the option to go completely off-grid.
If you’re looking for a convenient, cost-effective means of power, then battery backups are for you!
Solar produces more power than is being used.
If batteries are empty, power bypasses the grid.
Excess power is stored in your backup battery.
If power goes out, your batteries will be used.
Save money with next to no utility bill.
The process is repeated.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
SEE WHAT OTHERS ARE ASKING
What is the warranty with your system?
There are 25-year warranties on both the panels and the inverters, along with an additional 10-year workmanship warranty to ensure you and your investment are protected.
What if I need to replace my roof?
Option 1: Reroof now with your system and include the cost of the roof in the payments (very common), with no cost out-of-pocket
Option 2: Reroof later on, call us to come out to take off the panels for a service fee, replace your roof, and then re-install the equipment
Option 3: Reroof later on around the panels because your system will protect the roof area underneath
What happens if I move?
Option 1: Most people will use the added value from the system to sell their homes with the system. The seller will be responsible for paying off the remainder of the loan. The new homeowner will then have a paid-off system and enjoy the benefits.
Option 2: Some of the loans are assumable by the new homeowner. Check with your solar advisor to get the details if needed.
Does solar add value to my home?
Yes; a recent Zillow home study shows an average 4–5% addition to the total value of the home.
How do the tax incentives/credits work?
The Federal/Investment Tax Credit (FTC/ITC) is a dollar-for-dollar credit toward a customer’s Federal Tax Liability. It is calculated as 26% (thru 2022) of the gross system cost. A customer cannot claim more credits in a single year than their liability. Any remaining unused credit can be rolled into future years. This only applies to systems that are purchased and/or financed. For leased/PPA systems, the ITC is claimed by the solar lease company.
