Backup Power for Your NJ Home: Solar Battery Backup & Battery Storage

Solar Me is committed to providing top-quality, reliable solar battery backup and energy storage solutions to our residential and commercial customers in New Jersey.

Solar Financing Options We Provide

  • Ownership / Cash Purchase

    • Higher Upfront Cost

      Purchasing a solar system requires a significant upfront investment.

    • Maintenance

      As the owner, you’ll be responsible for maintenance and repairs.

    • No Monthly Payments

      Once you’ve paid for the system, there are no monthly payments (other than any loan payments if you financed the purchase).

    • Ownership Benefits

      You can take advantage of government incentives, rebates, and tax credits. You may also increase the value of your home.

    • Energy Savings

      All the energy savings go directly to you, potentially offsetting the initial cost over time

    • Selling Your Home

      If you sell your home, the solar system is a selling point and may increase your home’s value.

  • Best Option

    Solar Loan

    • Flexible Payment Options

      With financing choices ranging from cash payments to specialized solar loans from banks such as FiBank, there's a suitable option for various financial standings.

    • Swift Application Process

      The loan application is streamlined, often providing decisions in as quick as 30 seconds.

    • Adjustable Loan Terms

      Depending on your needs, loan terms span from 7 to 25 years, granting flexibility in repayment.

    • Varied Interest Rates

      The rates differ based on the term selected and potential contractor fees.

    • Full Ownership Benefits

      Despite financing, you fully own the solar system, making you eligible for government incentives, rebates, and tax credits.

    • Increase in Home Value

      As with outright purchases, the installation can enhance the value of your home, offering benefits should you decide to sell.

    Show More
  • Solar Lease /
    PPA

    • Lower Upfront Cost

      Leasing often requires little to no upfront cost, making it more accessible for many people.

    • Maintenance

      The leasing company generally takes care of maintenance and repairs, which can be a significant advantage if any issues arise.

    • Fixed Monthly Payments

      You’ll pay a fixed monthly lease payment to the solar company.

    • No Ownership

      You won’t own the system; the leasing company does. This means you may not have the right to claim any government incentives or rebates.

    • Transfer of Lease

      If you sell your home, you’ll either have to pay off the lease or the new homeowner will have to agree to take over the lease.

    • Energy Rate Consistency

      With a lease, you often lock in a consistent energy rate, safeguarding against potential energy price hikes in your locality

What Is Solar Battery Storage?

Solar battery storage is a system that allows you to store electricity generated by your solar panels during the day for use at night or during power outages. It reduces your reliance on the grid and can potentially save you more money on energy bills.

Solar battery storage systems typically consist of three main components:

  • Photovoltaic solar panels that convert sunlight into electricity.
  • An inverter that converts the direct current (DC) electricity produced by the solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity, which your home appliances use.
  • A battery that stores the excess electricity generated.

Get the Backup Solution That Meets Your Needs

For New Jersey residents looking to pair solar panels with the right backup power solution for them, Solar Me provides a range of options both in different types of storage or alternative means of energy production.

When it comes to battery backup systems, there are four main technologies used today for solar energy storage: lead-acid batteries, lithium-ion batteries, flow batteries, and nickel-cadmium batteries.

  • Lead-Acid

    • Cost: Least expensive

    • Efficiency: 80%-90%
      Life Cycle: 300-500 cycles
      Storage Capacity: 10-100 kWh

    • Benefits: Inexpensive but have a shorter lifespan.

  • Lithium-Iron

    • Cost: More expensive

    • Efficiency: 90%-99%
      Life Cycle: 2,000 - 5,000 cycles
      Storage Capacity: 10-100 kWh

    • Benefits: Highest efficiency, longest lifespan, but expensive.

  • Flow

    • Cost: Most expensive

    • Efficiency: 70%-80%
      Life Cycle: 5,000 - 10,000 cycles
      Storage Capacity: 10-100 kWh

    • Benefits: Long lifespan and can release energy over long periods, but requires large, complex systems.

  • Nickel-Cadmium

    • Cost: Average price

    • Efficiency: 80%-90%
      Life Cycle: 1,000 - 2,000 cycles
      Storage Capacity: 10-100 kWh

    • Benefits: Robust and tolerant of overcharging, but contain toxic metals.

Backup Batteries for Businesses

Backup battery systems store excess solar energy and provide businesses with power during utility outages or when it doesn’t shine. Today’s lithium-ion batteries are a popular, cost-effective storage option that can be scaled up to meet your largest commercial building’s energy needs.

Federal Tax Credit Info 2023

Residents of New Jersey can benefit from the federal solar tax credit, which can be applied to offset 30% of the total cost of your entire solar panel system, including any backup storage. 

This tax incentive is available for solar panel systems installed between 2022 and 2032, at which point the credit will start to decrease: 26% in 2033, 22% in 2034, and then expire in 2035. 

Don’t delay — take advantage of this tax credit today and call Solar Me!

What Our Customers Think

  • 5

    From sales to installation, they made the entire process easy and professional. They use top tier Qcell panels and Enphase micro-inverters. We had them install an Enphase backup battery as well. Andy and his team had us up and running. We had minor issues and they came back to check on us.

    Other companies might be cheaper but you'll find they lack service or they'll subcontract the installation and you won't hear from them again. We have no problems recommending SolarMe.

FAQ

  • How long can solar energy be stored?

    Solar batteries keep solar power stored for a few hours or up to a few days, depending on the size, type, and amount of solar energy generated.

  • How many solar batteries are needed to power a house?

    The number of solar batteries needed to power a house depends on the size of the solar array, the home's energy usage, and the desired level of backup power.

  • Will I have power during a blackout?

    If your solar system is connected to the utility grid and you do not have a battery, it will not work during a power outage. To have power during an outage, you need a battery storage system.
