Customer stories: Ernie from Berkeley

Team Haven

Ernie was frustrated by power outages and the devastating impacts of wildfires. Battery backup offered a practical solution, locking in reliable power and peace of mind.

Meet Ernie

Like many Californians, Ernie installed solar years ago. And his 20-panel rooftop has delivered on its promise of lower monthly electric bills and lower CO2 emissions. With time, however, Ernie started to notice a change in the climate. More wildfires. More extreme storms. More power outages. He decided to solve the problem by investing in home battery backup.

Today, Ernie's system works quietly in the background, providing energy to his Berkeley home through every season (and every fire) and making sure his more tropical companions never get too cold. (You'll have to watch the video to meet these feathery friends.) Pairing his Haven system with his existing solar set-up, Ernie has the additional benefit of being able to switch to battery power during peak pricing, typically from 4pm to 9pm, and offset high time-of-use rates.

Thanks to a wave of new incentives and rebates, as well as a sizable 30% federal tax credit, battery backup is more accessible than ever. Ready to beat blackouts and lower your bills? Get a quote and find out how much you can save.
