Reliable and Secure Power for Your Home

Enjoy peace of mind with energy security, lock in your energy costs for years to come and reduce pollution for the planet.

It’s a win, win, win!

Solar plus battery backup is the insurance policy you need to continue life uninterrupted when the power goes out. Whether it’s working from home, homeschooling your children, connecting virtually with friends and family, cooking dinner or enjoying home entertainment, you need power security! Solar is a good first step, but if you have solar and the power goes out, you can’t use your solar. For optimum security and to avoid being vulnerable to a power outage, having a battery backup to store the energy you produce is essential. Go solar with battery backup, so when the power goes out, yours stays on!

The Benefits of Battery Backup

We’re equipping thousands of homes like yours with solar + energy storage.

You’ll get:

  • Complete installation of solar + battery for $0 down
  • Secure, clean energy during power outages
  • Bill savings by using stored energy when rates are highest and energy bill predictability for years to come
  • Increased property values without higher property taxes
  • State rebates and federal tax incentives for transitioning to clean energy

Installing a battery in your home helps your neighbors too! More batteries mean less pressure on the electric grid, which translates to fewer power outages in your community.

How does a home battery work?

A home battery acts like a buffer between your home and the power grid. It plugs right into your current electrical system and provides backup power during a grid outage. Watch this video for a quick explanation.

What is the Community Grid Program and How Does it Work?

The Community Grid Program is a virtual power plant (VPP) that uses a network of distributed energy resources, such as solar and energy storage batteries, that together form a network of energy resources to lessen demand on the electric grid. By aggregating homes into VPPs and responding to grid events when called upon by utilities, Swell energy unlocks value for both homeowners and utilities.

Humboldt County’s energy future is here and it’s happening in your neighborhood.
