Sunrun and LG Chem looking to bring home battery market to U.S. homes.

Residential solar giant Sunrun Inc. and automotive battery manufacturer LG Chem Ltd, are partnering to market home battery energy storage.

I think this is great news. Why?

Well, first because it will hopefully make more people want solar, and when they want solar, they come to me to get it. After all, the ability to store power adds to the list of great reasons for switching to solar for your home.

With the ability to store excess power produced by a solar system, customers will no longer have to rely on giant utility monopolies to send them power when production does not meet demand. For instance, at night when utilities often have higher rates. Home battery packs could result in significant savings, and battery packs can also be used as a backup in case of utility company power outages.

It has been almost 18 months since we had Sunrun put solar panels on our roof. The savings have been incredible. My electricity cost have dropped dropped dramatically. No longer do I fear what running the air conditioner will do to my summer budget. Now I keep it cool, can use my A/C at will, and my energy cost are always the same low price.

See why I’m excited about battery storage? If I can add home battery storage to my system the savings will be even greater, and I will be able to truly get off the grid and live in a home powered by the sun.

You can power your home with the sun too! And I can help you if you live in California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey or New York. Those are the state where we currently offer solar. Find out more about going solar by contacting me. As an Ambit Energy Consultant, I will quickly put you in touch with one of our solar professionals at Sunrun and get you on your way to powering your home with the sun.

Interested in finding out more about starting your own home-based business? I am currently looking for motivated people to join my team in anticipation of new market expansions and continued growth. Here’s a short, 6-minute, video which will give you a brief overview of what I do. Of course, you can contact me directly, or if you don’t like forms, email me.
