We now have solar power + battery back-up kits for emergency power during an outage. These are basic, entry level kits that do not supply power to an entire house but will power a few essentials during an outage. They are perfect if you just want to run your pellet stove, or protect your freezer, or keep a few lights, your fridge and your heat on.
These kits can be pulled out during an emergency or we can have them mounted permanently in your home.
We have designed 3 levels of kits that will supply back up power stored in the battery for use when you need it. Solar panels will allow you to recharge your battery during the day (if there is sun).
Emergency Kit Levels
The “Appliance Kit”
For simple charging of communications devices, and running a few lights or small appliances
The “Cabin Kit”
Run an efficient refrigerator, some communications equipment and a few lights
The “House Kit”
Run a water pump, fridge, lights and some small appliances.
Prices range from $1,800 to $9,950 and all are eligible for 30% Federal Income Tax Credit.
