Residential Solar Introduced In Southern California

NRG Solar plans to introduce a residential solar storage system to Southern California in light of Hurricane Sandy last year.

With utilities rushing to repair damages to the grid and transmission lines in the aftermath of the freak weather, residential storage is another way apart from microgrids to ensure reliable energy supply.

NRG plans to create a pergola using solar panels, which generate solar energy during the day and store the excess for use at night or during power outages.

The residential storage market has grown by a whopping 62% in 2012, thanks to government incentives and tax breaks.

At present, customers who sign up with NRG only have to foot a monthly fee, not an upfront cost for installation of the system.
