Modes of Operation

In Savings mode, the inverter remains grid-connected, but prioritizes the use of battery and renewable sources to run loads during high rate periods. Power supplied from the batteries will attempt to match the load for as long as possible during peak Time-of-Use (TOU).

In Self-Supply mode, the PowerPod prioritizes powering local loads with solar and/or stored power first. The PowerPod will use generated solar power to recharge batteries before any power is exported to the grid. If the battery is full and a surplus of power is available, that surplus is exported to the grid. If the battery is depleted and no solar power is available, power is drawn from the grid to power loads as a last-priority source.

In some markets, solar PV systems are prohibited from back-feeding to the AC grid. For these applications, PowerPod has Net Zero Export mode – a subset of Self-Consumption mode. The key difference is that when the batteries are full and there are no loads, rather than sending excess power to the grid, the PowerPod will limit power generation such that it matches the power consumed by local loads resulting in no exported power.

In Backup mode, the PowerPod prioritizes keeping batteries charged and ready for grid interruption, using only solar power. When grid service is interrupted, the system will automatically begin islanding, powering local loads with solar power or stored battery power.

    "There was no gasoline or gas smell around my house...the street smelled, but my family was spared. Backup power came on immediately without the need for me to manually turn on a generator or flip a switch. I’ll start spreading the good word about [Electriq PowerPod]."

    "I used to receive a credit for the energy my solar produced during the middle of the day at a much higher rate. When my rate plan changed, and energy became more expensive at than during the middle of the day, I decided to go with the PowerPod. The PowerPod stores excess solar energy that I'm producing during the day, so that I can use that energy instead of the grid during the higher rates in the evening."

Tax Credits & Incentives


Investment Tax Credit

This federal solar tax credit allows you to deduct 30 percent of the cost of a solar energy system from your federal taxes, and there’s no cap on its value. Act quickly, though, this solar incentive will begin to phase out starting in 2020.

Self-Generation Incentive Program

California homeowners who are customers of either PG&E, SCE, SCG, or SDG&E will be eligible for an incentive as high as $400 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) when you install a home battery.

Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target

The SMART program is a declining block program in which the incentive levels will decline by prescribed amounts over up to eight blocks per Electric Distribution Company (EDC) territory.
