The Thompson family lives in a rural area that suffers from frequent power blackouts due to unstable power supplies and an unreliable grid connection. Not only that, but rising electricity rates were becoming a growing concern. “We were fed up with high power bills and needed to make a change,” said Mr. Thompson.
The Thompsons recently made that change reality with a Vika-installed energy storage system.
Vika designed a customized total solar PV and battery storage solution for the Thompsons, including a 5 kW Vika Storion-S5 system with a 10 kWh lithium-ion battery. Now, Mr. Thompson’s solar PV system is making a big difference in their electricity bills while also providing backup power whenever the grid fails.
