Battery Back Up and Electric Cars

The Powerwall and Powerpack are rechargeable lithium-ion battery stationary energy storage products manufactured by Tesla Inc.. The Powerwall is intended for home use and stores electricity for solar self-consumption, time of use load shifting, backup power, and off-the-grid use.

The sonnenBatterie eco is an energy storage solution for your home that uses intelligent software to manage energy throughout the day – saving you money, providing backup power and enabling you to use your solar power at night.

Skytech Solar is now a Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer, which means we now offer a customized solar-plus-battery solution that enables you to access the free, abundant power of the sun and reduces your reliance on fossil fuels.

With Powerwall you can store solar energy generated during the day for use any time. During the day, the sun shines on your solar panels, charging your battery. At night, your home draws electricity from your battery, powering your home with clean, sustainable energy 24/7.

Installing Powerwall with Skytech Solar is easy. We take care of everything from [CI value-add may include system design, permitting, installation, financing, and/or other customer service].

Powerwall consists of a 14 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system, an integrated inverter and software that intelligently dispatches electricity when it’s needed most. The unit mounts seamlessly on a wall or on the ground, indoors or outdoors, and is connected to the grid to export excess energy, maximizing your opportunity for economic benefit.

Powerwall can provide a number of benefits:

Increasing self-consumption of solar power generation –Powerwall can store surplus solar energy during daylight hours and use that energy later when the sun is not shining.
Load shifting – Powerwall can charge during low rate periods when demand for electricity is lower and discharge during more expensive rate periods when electricity demand is higher.
Back-up power – Assures power in the event of a grid outage.

Electric Cars

With the growing popularity of electric cars and the need for renewable energy solutions, it is only natural that the roof solar panels from Skytech Solar have been designed to provide the ideal solution for both! Driving an electric or hybrid car is only the beginning to your contribution towards conserving energy. Our PV solar panels can not only reduce the amount of electricity you need to keep your car charged and ready to go, they can save you a lot of money in the process. Our solar roof panels are available in a variety of sizes and configurations to meet a wide range of needs. We can easily and quickly install a small solar panel on your garage and make a huge difference in the amount of electricity you have to pay for each month.

When you use us to install one of our solar PV systems over a non-certified installer, you  can qualify for up to an additional $700 on top on the existing Go Solar SF incentives.

In addition, we will factor in the size of the installed Skytech Solar system to cover the extra electricity you may need for your car. There are many benefits to using solar direct energy for your vehicle as well as your home. You will reduce your dependence on fossil fuels, reduce the cost of fuel, and reduce your impact on the environment. The purchase of an electric car is a big step towards helping the future of the planet, but there are also some important considerations about the way that it will change the way you drive.
