1 “Essential Appliances” are determined by the homeowner before installation and typically include lights, select appliances and devices. The energy storage system should not be relied upon as a power source for critical medical devices. The life of the energy storage system will vary depending on a number of factors, including, but not limited to: the amount of energy stored in the battery, the amount of wattage used by the appliances and electronics connected to the battery storage system, the age of the battery, the battery’s ability to recharge during daylight hours due to weather, the frequency and duration of battery usage, and other factors. Battery life will decrease with time and use.

Similar to the SunPower SunVault®, sonnenBatterie stores excess solar energy to cover you during the nighttime, in inclement weather, and protect you from power outages.
Lion Energy Battery
Lion Energy offers a range of premium lithium batteries that lasts 14 times longer than lead-acid batteries. These slim, lightweight batteries are the perfect backup solution to your solar system. Backed by a lifetime warranty, Lion Energy promises its battery is the last you’ll ever buy.
Power outages and climate crises are unpredictable, leaving anyone reliant on the electrical grid unprotected in the case of an emergency.
