Reduce Your Reliance on the Power Grid and Save Energy

Some growing home trends in 2023 are using eco-friendly products, improving energy efficiency, smart home technology, and adding more natural light. These trends center around the ever-increasing concern for the environment and how to create a greener, more environmentally conscious home.

One of the best ways to achieve this goal is through a home energy management system. These systems provide solar power, backup battery storage, and a management system that puts you in charge of your energy and how you use it. 

Let’s explore what these systems offer homeowners in Minnetonka, MN, and the surrounding areas.

Rethinking the Grid

Aging infrastructure, changing climates, increasing power outages, and concern for the environment are at the core of the current paradigm shift in our energy consumption and its source. At ResTech Systems, we partner with Savant, a leader in luxury home automation and energy management. This system helps us confirm our commitment to helping our clients achieve greater energy independence and experience the peace of mind that comes from having backup power. 

Savant Power works by harnessing solar power and then storing excess energy in batteries. You can use your solar power or backup energy to reduce your utility bills, keep your power on during a weather-related event or when the grid is having a bad day, or reduce your carbon footprint. 

Managing Your Energy

The Savant app lets you monitor your energy, see where it’s being used, and take control of your energy consumption. You can control any circuit in your home and determine your power source. For example, by pressing a button, you can disconnect from the grid or activate an energy mode. 

Energy modes can also trigger automatically in the event of a power outage, when utility companies charge peak rates, or when a storm is approaching. For instance, the Storm Watch Mode prioritizes charging the battery and reserving the energy when an approaching storm may cause a power outage. Should an outage occur, you can select an off-grid scene that prioritizes different circuits. 

A ‘Dinner’ scene gives precedence to kitchen circuits and essentials while deactivating others. Now, you can cook during an outage, knowing you won’t drain your batteries too quickly. When the grid is back up and running, you receive a notification, and your home reverts back to grid power.

Staying Green

Solar power is an environmentally friendly way to supply backup power to your home. This clean energy substantially reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other dangerous pollutants. 

On the other hand, using generators as backup energy results in more pollution. Exhaust from diesel generators has been shown to contain more than 40 toxic air contaminants, including some cancer-causing substances and other harmful environmental pollutants.
