Hurricane season is right around the corner. It’s time to check your supply of batteries, flashlights, water, non-perishable foods and medicine, and consider investing in a good generator. If and when a storm hits, power outages are all but inevitable.

Unless, of course, you already have an energy storage solution on-site.


Alternate Energy Inc.’s (AEI) solar customers now can control their own energy future with on-site, energy storage. Home Energy Storage Solution (HESS) from AEI is an intelligent, on-site distributed energy storage system that captures excess solar power, stores it on-site, and delivers it when you need it — at night, on cloudy days, and even in the event of a power outage. HESS can be used as a back-up energy source or as a way to completely disconnect from the grid — great if you live in an area with an already oversaturated circuit.

So while the 2016 hurricane season has the potential to deliver a record number of powerful storms, a HESS system will allow your lights to remain on, computers up, A/C running and refrigerators chilling. The peace of mind that comes with a backup power system can’t be overestimated.


HESS units are installed at homes and businesses, integrating with new or existing solar systems, and can connect to the grid with an expedited interconnection approval. HESS combines lithium-ion battery technology for up to a 20-year life cycle, “True UPS” (uninterruptible power supply), and a 10-year manufacturer warranty. You can learn more about the HESS advantage at AEI is an authorized dealer of Sunverge storage solutions.


For even more storm security, AEI recommends a back-up generator. The company offers a top-of-the-line Emergency Power Kit which includes a Honda Generator, safety transfer switch, full installation and a three-year AEI parts and labor warranty.

Hurricane Season? No problem.
