How to Be Grid Independent and Self Reliant With Smart Technology
TAGS: Energy Conservation | Sonnen
As heat waves thrive and wildfires rage through the West Coast, Californians have been asked to conserve energy to reduce demands on the grid. The California Independent System Operator calls for residents to avoid using major appliances after 3 p.m., keep their air conditioning at 78 degrees or higher, and turn off all necessary lights. In the event of a Public Safety Power Shutoff, millions of homes will be without electricity.
You can do your part to rely less on the grid while simultaneously keeping your home powered. If you’re based in or near Pasadena, CA, a home energy storage system will keep areas of your home powered when you most need it, even amidst a power failure. And if you own solar panels, you’ll be able to store your solar energy to use clean power after dark.
But how does home energy storage work, and can you really power your home without the grid? We answer your energy conservation questions below!

Let’s think about the current moment we live in, where so many of the things we used to go to the store are now being delivered to our homes.
Imagine that while you’re away from home, a delivery man approaches your front door. You’re notified by your security app, and you watch your Amazon package arrive through the front door camera, just as you were expecting. An hour later you are notified that someone else is approaching your home.
But wait—you weren’t expecting another delivery. That’s when you sound the alarm on your app, and the would-be thief of your package goes scurrying back to his car.
With a surveillance camera installation, our customers in La Cañada Flintridge have felt safe knowing that not only is their personal property is protected, but that they and their loved ones are also fully protected while home at night. But what can you expect in your system?
