Battery Backup

Be prepared the next time the power goes out.

Battery backup is SolarCity's solution to protect your family and your home from unpredictable outages and natural disasters.

A clean and simple solution for backup power.

During the day, solar energy charges your battery while it powers your home.

As day transitions to night, your battery backup system keeps things running smoothly, so if the grid goes down, the essential devices in your home will not.

Worry-free energy monitoring and real-time insights.

With the MySolarCity app, you can monitor your battery backup system 24/7 to see the state of your charge. And you can check out how much power your solar system is producing, your battery is storing and your home is consuming by the minute.

Our software algorithms also monitor your energy profile and can suggest savings opportunities that utilize your battery. We will gather data and make recommendations on what rate plans would be best for you.
