Learn more about our services for the Austin Area: Residential Solar, Commercial Solar, Solar Panel Types, Solar Inverter Types and Solar Cost.


Energy Storage

There are many reasons for adding energy storage to a solar system. The two most common are:

1) Offsetting peak demand power. Peak Demand consumption is a common billing factor for Commercial Austin Energy Customers. Batteries coupled with Solar Panels can help lower the peak demand. This can substantially lower Commercial Electric bills for buildings that have high Air Conditioning loads.

2) Providing backup power during a power outage. In our opinion Austin Energy is very reliable so backup power is more of a luxury than necessity.


Electric Vehicle Charging

Our team of tenured Master Electricians specialize in adding circuits for electric vehicle charging. Austin Energy has incentives to help lower the cost for adding circuits and the units themselves.

We have seen an increase in Austin businesses wanting units for customers to recharge their vehicles. Visit our Electric Vehicle Charging section to learn more about hiring HE Solar for your charging installation.
