As an installer, your homeowner clients may enjoy the benefits of solar electricity from their panels – but do they fully understand it? More importantly, are they aware of the benefits of solar storage?
Without a solar battery to store that energy, your homeowner clients won’t be able to power their critical rooms and appliances when an outage strikes. They’ll also be vulnerable to certain net metering, peak demand, and time-of-use (TOU) rates. In other words, solar storage ensures energy security as well as significant electricity savings.
For your clients to see the value in solar storage, you’ll have to address your clients’ pains and how they’ll benefit from a storage option. The team at NeoVolta is addressing this issue with our solar battery, the NV14, a fire-safe lithium-iron phosphate unit that’s designed specifically for home use.
Along with it posing no thermal runaway as opposed to lithium-ion competitors, the NV14 lasts 50% longer than most competitors on average and takes less than a day to install. After hearing these advantages, most homeowners are ready to opt in, gain energy security, and start saving more on irritating fees.

How Panels Generate Solar Electricity
Solar panels absorb sunlight and convert it into usable electricity through semiconducting materials in the panels, allowing homeowners to cut back on the energy they draw from the grid.
When sunlight hits the panels, electrons are knocked loose from the semiconductor atoms, creating an electric field that allows electricity to flow. This power is then sent to power select rooms, home appliances, and devices, from medical equipment to at-home offices.
Your solar homeowner clients may already be aware of this information, but are they keen on the modern advantages of solar storage? If not, it’s important to educate them on why their panel-only setups require storage, from energy security to lower peak demand fees.
Why Panel-Only Systems Require Solar Backup
While solar panels are capable of powering homes during sunny days, grid-tied solar systems have no way of storing solar power for later use. This means that solar panel-only systems require a secondary backup source from the grid – but grid power isn’t always reliable. Enter solar battery storage.
Adding a solar backup provides the power needed to keep your solar electricity flowing even when panels aren’t producing, such as at nighttime, during cloudier days, or when an outage strikes. Most solar batteries, including NeoVolta’s NV14, will allow you to select which rooms and devices to keep powered on in the event of a power failure or outage. This ensures that critical medical devices, at-home offices, and other necessary appliances are “always on” even when the grid isn’t.
On top of these benefits, your solar customers will reap the benefits of lowered peak demand and time-of-use (TOU) rates. By storing solar energy for use during peak times, which is usually between midday and early afternoon, your clients can effectively escape demand charges and save significantly on lowered time of use.
As an installer, it’s important to keep your clientele educated on how their systems work and how they can be improved. Panel-only systems are no longer an advantage, and to make the most of their solar electricity, homeowners will need a solar battery that provides energy security while lowering those pesky net metering and peak demand fees.
Become a NeoVolta-Certified Dealer Today
Adding a reliable solar battery option to your product mix is your ticket to meeting homeowner demand while expanding your business.
But rather than dealing with lithium-ion batteries that carry thermal runaway risks, consider a fire-safe lithium-iron phosphate solar battery such as NeoVolta’s NV14. Our powerful solar storage system offers an exceptionally long 16.5-year lifespan or 6,000 cycles, outlasting the average competitor by over six years.
Shipping the NV14 also takes less than two weeks, and installation can be completed in under a day – a far faster process when compared to other solar battery competitors.
