Battery energy storage is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and save utility cost. When tied to solar, it can keep your building running during power shut offs and other emergency events. There are a variety of batteries on the market to choose from and many reputable installers in the Santa Barbara area to help you pick the best system for your building.

The Solarize program from the CEC also offers vetted special pricing on batteries.
