A home battery acts like a buffer between the grid and a home. When the grid goes out or is under too much strain, the battery will turn a home into an "energy island" separating it from the grid.
This makes your home immune to power outages and surges, while helping to reduce strain on the grid during high demand times. It's a win-win for homeowners and utility companies alike.
