Solar batteries allow homeowners to store some of the solar energy they’re producing in a backup battery, which can then be used as a limited power source at night or during power outages. We don’t yet offer a solar storage battery, but your GAF Energy solar system was designed to be battery ready. If you are interested in purchasing a backup battery for your solar system you can do that from a vendor of your choice and have it installed.
It’s important to note that even with a battery your solar system is still connected to the utility grid. When you produce more energy than you use, you’ll benefit from net metering, which will credit you for any excess energy you produce and send to the grid.
Complete Solar System for Your Home
When you choose a GAF Energy roof-integrated complete home solar system, you are choosing more than just clean, renewable energy for your home. You’re choosing a waterproof solar roof solution that will help pay for itself over time by saving you money on your electric bill.
