Solar batteries can be an adaptable and incredible source of revenue for your business, so your profits shine bright. You’ve already satisfied your solar panel-only customers. Learn how returning to them can benefit them and your business.

Can You Add a Battery Backup to an Existing Solar System?

Before NEM 3.0, solar installs were thriving,, and your team had it down pat – two guys in a truck with panels and tools. You made a lot of customers happy with efficient installs. With NEM 3.0 and fewer people buying homes, those new customer sales are slowing down.  

But what about those happy customers from before?

In the United States alone, it is estimated that 4.2 million homes have solar panels. As of 2023, with the introduction of NEM 3.0, sell-backs are no longer a core benefit to incentivize homeowners. 

Storage is now the most significant source of savings for homeowners. 

This new policy encourages smarter energy usage during high-demand periods with Time Use Rates, incentivizing storage. More importantly, all of those happy customers who were satisfied with your initial install, have probably experienced a few hiccups having a solar-only set up.

Without solar battery storage, they are still reliant on the grid after sundown – and that 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. time block is the most expensive period. And when a power outage hits at night, they need to grab a flashlight like those homeowners tethered to the grid.

That can be very frustrating. 

But your solar install business can alleviate those frustrations.

Selling these homeowners a battery backup system to existing solar panel setup maximizes storage, performance and savings and gives them the control to power specific areas and devices in the home during a blackout. This is important as more people are working from home and utilizing medical devices that need an uninterrupted power supply.
