Frequently Asked Questions About Orange & Rockland’s Solar & Battery Storage Program
During the day, your solar panels will provide power to your home and charge your battery. If you experience a power outage, your battery will automatically provide backup power to the things in your home that are important to you – such as your refrigerator, WiFi, and lights.
When there is high demand on the grid for electricity, Sunrun will send a signal to your battery system to send energy to your home or to the grid to help meet that high demand. You’ll keep a 20% reserve for personal backup needs during these times and get the special discounted price on your system’s lease for helping reduce grid strain.
