Solar Battery Price

Although not essential for everyone, solar batteries bring a lot of value to a solar system. For people who find themselves living in areas with unreliable power grids or in regions with a lot of natural disasters, a battery backup option might be the solution. Regardless of their decision, if you ever find yourself when the grid goes down, having batteries is priceless.

The price of adding a battery backup to your system really depends. The average price of solar batteries (excluding costs of installation and additional equipment) typically range from $5,000 to $7,000. However, batteries that operate off-grid are generally more costly than those that are connected to the grid.

Some batteries may qualify you for state rebates such as California’s SGIP. In addition, some homeowners may also qualify for the 30% federal tax credit for the installation of any “energy properties” such as lithium-ion batteries.
