I have a generator. Why do I need the sonnenBatterie?
A storm prediction is a nail biter for most… long lines at the supermarket with people stocking up on staples and supplies, checks on flashlight batteries and worries about losing power. Following the debilitating storms of the last few years, including Hurricane Sandy, homeowners have learned that having a backup power system in place can be priceless.
So, the question is: can you get by with having a portable generator or do the benefits and ROI make more sense with a sonnenBatterie home back-up battery system?
Here are some factors to consider:
- You are 100% guaranteed “seamless” power! The sonnenBatterie is a 24/7 home energy storage solution that uses intelligent software to manage the energy needs of your home. You will never have to worry about the power going out, even when you are not at home. The sonnenBatterie’s unique power dedication system will kick in and automatically switch over to battery power when needed and even during extended grid failures. This means that you will no longer have to worry if your permanent generator has kicked in while you’re away from home. The sonnenBatterie program is user-friendly and features a downloadable sonnenApp where you can check your energy usage and production anytime and from anywhere. You can, therefore, monitor, analyze and take control from your smartphone or tablet as much or as little as you like.
- No more trips to the gas station. With the sonnenBatterie you are getting up to 100% of your power from clean energy. Generators run on costly gas, which is a non-renewable energy source that contributes to climate change and air pollution, not to mention – is also smelly and messy. In contrast, the sonnenBatterie offers clean, renewable energy security. The all-in-one sonnenBatterie energy storage system integrates with new and existing solar power systems to turn your house into a smart energy home — using more of the solar energy you generate during the day to provide at night and keep your lights on when the grid goes down.
- No more noise. All generators, especially portable ones (but, even the permanent generators) are extremely noisy and most people need to turn them off at night out of respect for their neighbors and their own sleep. In comparison, the sonnenBatterie offers you complete peace and quiet!
- Generators require a LOT of maintenance: Generators require constant maintenance and large amounts of fuel to run and you need to continuously refill the tank. When not using your generator, storage of fuel can be dangerous and will need to be kept outdoors. With the sonnenBatterie there is no fuel: you can enjoy the benefits day and night thanks to the solar energy production working round the clock. Never again will you have to worry about running out of fuel for your generator.
*Note: The sonnenBatterie is maintenance-free and offers an unprecedented 10 year/10,000 cycle warranty.
- Safety is a priority! Generators produce toxic exhaust and are more prone to fires. This means that you need to run them outdoors and make sure they are stored properly. Home batteries, of course, have zero emissions.
- Convenience and Appearance: Everything you need to operate is in one sleek unit, you can plug and play all in one storage technology, no need for unsightly and loud generators.
- Return on Investment (ROI). With a traditional generator there is constant and expensive refueling, and no storing of energy to use at a later date. The generator must be running to power your house. The sonnenBatterie offers one single and worthwhile investment. When combined with solar panels, you will have the assurance and peace of mind that goes with having a completely energy independent home running on its own 100 percent clean, renewable energy.
