What Does Home Solar Battery Backup Cost?
The price of home battery systems is based on which appliances you want to operate and how many hours you want to operate them, without recharging the system from the sun. A basic battery backup system costs about $14,000, depending on complexity, and large-scale systems can run up to $42,000 or more. These average costs take into account the 30% tax credit, which is available for stand-alone battery backup systems and when combined with a solar installation through the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) passed in 2022. This includes the battery(s), gateway, additional electrical equipment, permits, and licensed electrical labor. We offer our zero-down, low-interest financing for storage.
Additionally, for Colorado residents living within Xcel’s electricity grid, purchasing a Tesla battery can qualify you for Xcel’s Renewable Battery Connect incentive program, where you can save on both your battery installation and annually for your participation in the program. And, most battery purchases qualify for rebates in the cities of Denver and Fort Collins.
Our non-commissioned advisors can help you figure out which type of system will best fit your needs.
