Nor’easter Leaves over 162K without Power, Eight Days Later and Counting: Sunrise Solar Solutions Has the Solution

In the aftermath of last Friday’s Nor’easter, over 162,000 Hudson Valley residents are still grappling with the loss of power to their homes. Frustration and anger further mounted after the second Nor’easter on Wednesday, and the number of homes without power increased with restoration dates that now stretch past the one week mark and no completion date in sight.

With another storm predicted for next week, the buzz has been quickly growing among residents looking for alternative energy sources and solutions to power outages that happen too often in this region, heavily populated with trees that fall and damage power lines. Community member discussions about switching to solar power are now widespread. Our office has literally been flooded with calls about solar since the start of winter and especially, since last Friday!

In addition to solar system design and installation, we offer the sonnenBatterie back-up system. A much needed addition to ensure power reliability and cost efficiency — the battery features a unique power detection system that will sense outages in real-time and will automatically switch over to battery power. In storms like last Friday’s Nor’easter where roads are blocked by downed trees and wires, having a warm place to call home is imperative.

The sonnenBatterie is a 24/7 home energy storage solution that uses intelligent software to manage the energy needs of your home, every minute of every day, season after season. Practically speaking, this means that you’re not only covered throughout the day, but then able to use your solar power at night too. And should a power outage occur, sonnenBatterie has the capacity to keep you humming along even during extended grid failures. With more snow projected in the northeast this week, there has never been a better time to ensure you won’t end up in the dark and without heat.

The battery’s smart software equates to a smart investment. The intelligent program engages in rate arbitrage, storing energy when it’s at its most affordable and then running your home off the battery when rates go up. Additionally, the program is user-friendly; with the downloadable sonnenApp, you’re able to 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.

As more winter weather comes our way, don’t get stuck in the dark and cold again! To find out more info, contact or call 914-762-7622.
