Andrew A. Goes Solar with Tesla Backup

Andrew A. from Flagstaff, AZ, needed a solution for his high electric bills. He was paying between $250 and $350 every month, and he knew that was just too high. What’s worse, this money was going directly to APS with no return on the investment. Like many homeowners, he knew that solar was the solution, but he also wanted a way to control his energy usage. The answer was a Rooftop Solar system paired with two Tesla Powerwalls. Every Rooftop Solar system is different just like everyone’s energy needs, and hybrid systems with battery backup are making sense for more and more homeowners these days.

In Andrew’s case, a solar plus storage system made the most sense because it would allow Andrew to not only generate his own power but also use it when he needs it. Andrew filled out a form online to find a good solar company and found that Rooftop Solar is the clear choice in Arizona. Andrew knew that he could go solar and sell all of his power to APS, but he also knew that he could not then utilize the power in the ways that he wanted to. After setting an appointment with Rooftop Solar, Andrew knew that with Tesla Powerwalls, he would become self-sufficient. 

Rooftop Solar also recommended Q Cells panels for Andrew’s project. Q Cells is one of the top solar panel brands for pairing with battery hybrid systems. This is because they are a leader in complete energy solutions.

These days, when there is a storm, and electricity is lost to some of the homes in Andrew’s area, he knows that he is covered. This has been especially valuable during Flagstaff’s monsoon season. This year saw several big storms, but Andrew did not lose power once. In these cases, Andrew noticed that he received notifications from APS indicating that the power was out, but otherwise would not have noticed.

When Andrew needs to monitor and manage his home energy system, he simply uses his phone. Tesla makes it very easy to choose when to draw from the battery, when to charge the battery, and when to draw from the grid.

Andrew reported that the experience of going solar with Rooftop Solar was 100% positive. The Powerwall is a huge part of this, but it is important that every homeowner explores the exact right custom options for them.
