We can’t say enough about the importance of smart sustainable power from renewable energy systems. Microgrids ensure you never (yes, never) lose connectivity, always have access to abundant consistent energy, and provide the kind of autonomy you crave. Renewable energy gives back and then keeps on giving.

Talk About Tesla

Tesla is rolling out a new backup gateway that can help solar-powered homes keep the lights on in a power cut. The Backup Gateway 2 pairs with the company’s Powerwall battery, which collects energy from sources like rooftop solar panels. When the gateway detects a grid power failure, it switches power output to ensure the whole home receives power from the Powerwall.” – inverse.com.

The first Powerwall lacked the ability to run for long periods of time when the grid was down even with a battery. That problem is now solved. Being able to depend on your own microgrid is the ultimate solution. And Tesla is just one company now offering the ability to fuse solar, battery, and generator power in your own home.

Off-grid Autonomy

Tesla’s smart technology is riding on the heels of RoseWater and RacePoint energy companies, offering innovative technologies found in commercial spaces and luxury residences. Frontrunners who have developed the unique microgrid triad of solar, battery, and generator backup systems. These off-grid energy solutions are efficient and clean. And they put money back into the pocket of the consumer.

Powerful and Reliable

Drilling home the point of autonomy and dependability, energy is the powerful commodity that you really can’t do without. Hurricanes, tornados, government shut-downs, and unforeseen accidents can cause power outages that last for minutes to months. But with the simple infrastructure of solar panels, batteries, and a generator, you can run your home without energy from the grid. Water, heat, cooling, electricity…things you wouldn’t want to do without…are never an issue, with your own microgrid.

A Worthy Investment

Spend $1000 on solar panels, and save $25 on your power bill forever. Even wind and hydroelectric generated power can charge batteries of your personal microgrid. If you can charge the batteries, you can harvest and manage your own power.

There are too many reasons not to be your own powerhouse. Financial savings, eco-savvy satisfaction, and ultimate reliability. Don’t miss the wave of the future and don’t wait for the next storm. Ask your smart home integrator about microgrid technology, today.
