Our Storage Product will be available again in late Summer 2015.
We've filled all of the spots in our Battery Storage pilot program and we won't be adding any more sales for the time being.
So far through the program, we've installed 300 systems, and plan to finish out 130 more in early 2015. We've been getting great feedback from the many excited Bay Area customers who seamlessly switched to their SolarCity backup system during the power outages caused by recent storms.
The Storage team is working hard on the next phase of Battery Energy Storage at SolarCity. Check back again in mid-2015 for a new and improved offering!
Your battery system will provide your home with power if the utility grid goes down—such as after an earthquake or other natural disasters. A fully charged battery provides enough energy for your essential needs during an emergency.

SolarCity is making the latest advancements in battery technologies available to you through our partnership with Tesla Motors. Only SolarCity's home backup system uses technology engineered by Tesla, leveraging their expertise in developing battery technologies for premium electric vehicles.
Tesla's long history of research and development has enabled a cost-effective, wall-mounted storage appliance that is small, powerful and covered by a long lasting full 10 year warranty.
The actual battery unit is about the size of a solar power inverter, and will be mounted on the wall in your garage or near your electrical panel.
