Why? The California grid is in trouble. A home battery will secure your home energy, while reducing strain on the grid.
Power outage frequency has increased 4x in the last decade (ref) with the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) predicting up to 14 days of power outages through March of 2017. That's because the grid is made of 80-year-old technology that can't be upgraded without severely disrupting California's economy.
Because of this, the State of California has created the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP), which gives homeowners a cash rebate of up to $9,500 for installing technologies like a home battery that reduce strain on the power grid.
With Swell, you can apply for the SGIP rebate entirely online.
