With years of experience the tea, at Lotus Energy Systems will have you saving money with solar in no time! We use only the best products, from the racking to the inverters and panels so you can have peace of mind knowing that your investment will last for decades.
CA leads the country in power outages and has for years. This is a big reason many homeowners want solar and a battery for back up and to ensure their solar works when they need it most. We can retro fit a battery into most existing solar installs as well!
You must face it, before you know it someone in your household you will be driving an EV vehicle. Get prepared and have us install a level 2 EV charger in your garage or outside. We use the Wall Box charger so everything looks neat and you even have an app to control it.
Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Yes, and no. If you have grid tied solar, without a battery, the system has to shut off to follow code. However with a battery, or special micro inverters from Enphase, we can isolate your system from the grid in the event of an outage. You can power just your essential loads, or your whole home!
We do, but not as often now that batteries are large enough to power the same loads a generator can. With the tax credit on the battery and the fact you do not have to purchase fuel to run it, the total cost of ownership is more expensive after about 5-7 years of having the generator.
We only offer battery systems made from Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP). This chemistry is far different than the toxic NMC chemistry in batteries like the Powerwall and LG Chem. It is non-toxic and sustainably harvested. It also lasts almost 3 times more cycle like than NMC!
Unlike a traditional generator you will use your battery daily. This is because of time of use rates. When the power is cheap the solar charges the battery and runs the loads. When power is expensive the battery discharges so you do not pay the higher fee and the difference in the rate of your solar credit and the electrical charge from the utility. So a battery, over time, can actually be cheaper than gird tied solar!
Just like solar, the system size you need may be drastically different than the system size your neighbor would need. Typically it goes along with the size of solar you have, or need. Costs to make your solar a micro grid and have backup is around 10% of the same cost as your solar.
