BATTERY STORAGE IN HAWAII
In today's landscape of solar PV in Hawaii, battery storage is basically a must if you want to maximize your savings. Hawaiian Electric does not offer the same credits that they used to, so the best way to save on your electric bill is store your power at home!
HOW IT WORKS
In the simplest explanation, the power that your solar panels produce throughout the day will run everything in your home and charge your batteries at the same time. When the sun goes down, your battery(ies) will keep everything going until the sun comes back up in the morning!
