Milwaukee Solar Battery Backup

Never Experience a Power Outage Again

For over 40 years, Current Electric Co. has been bringing innovative power solutions to Southeast Wisconsin residents. As more people make the switch to solar and break free from their local power grids, the need for reliable power storage has increased. Our experts work hard to stay up to date with the latest advancements in solar battery backup technology. We are proud to offer our customers a range of battery backup services, including Tesla Powerwall, Generac PWRcell, and SolarEdge Hub products.

If you are looking to keep the power on during a power outage, storm, or other emergencies, you should consider installing a solar battery backup. The Milwaukee battery backup experts at Current Electric Co. are standing by to help you select the right products and services to meet your needs.

Why You Need a Battery Backup for Your Solar Energy System

If you have solar panels installed on your home, you are already benefiting from the free energy of the sun. However, what do you do on days when there is no sun? Many solar systems are grid-tied, allowing you to keep your home powered even when there isn't any sun. However, if there is a bad storm or other problem, and the grid goes down, you may be left without power.

By installing a solar battery backup, you can store the free energy your system produces for later use. This can help you keep your system running smoothly, even when the power grid goes down. Battery backups are particularly important for homeowners who do not have grid-tied solar systems. If you are completely independent of the grid, this battery backup is crucial to keeping your power on.

A battery backup can help you keep the power on:

  • During snowstorms or rainstorms
  • At night or on days when there isn't much sun
  • When the power grid goes down
  • During emergencies or natural disasters

Battery Backup Systems

Tesla Powerwall

With Powerwall, you can store solar energy generated during the day for use at any time. Current Electric is a Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer. We offer a customized solar-plus-battery solution that enables you to access the free, abundant power of the sun and reduces your reliance on fossil fuels. During the day, the sun shines on your solar panels, charging your battery. At night, your home draws electricity from your battery, powering your home with clean, sustainable energy 24/7.

Installing Powerwall with Current Electric is easy. We take care of everything from system design, permitting installation, financing, and customer service.


The Generac PWRcell integrates solar generation and smart battery storage using a single, powerful inverter. A single PWRcell provides enough power to backup air conditioners, well pumps, and other appliances or systems with a large energy load. This battery system is flexible and can even be set up outdoors in nearly any climate. When the grid goes down, this system picks up the load and restores power to your home's circuits in under a second. You may never notice that the grid is down.

SolarEdge Hub

The superior performance of HD-Wave and StorEdge come together to offer advanced home storage. When installed with a battery and backup interface, the Energy Hub DC-coupled solution provides high energy yield, allowing for larger installations. The inverter features top in call technology and a built-in car charging solution. The SolarEdge system will take care of all your needs whether you want to run select circuits or a whole home.

    “First-rate, on-time, and polite”
    All you hear today is how hard it is to get trades to answer or return a phone call. This was not the case with their online appointment; it was a breeze. As for the workmanship, it was first-rate, on-time, and polite

    “Professional, Incredibly Responsive, and in Tune with Each Other”
    I contacted Current Electric to design and install a residential solar system for my house, after having had a bad experience with a different provider. The several staff I worked with were all very professional, incredibly responsive, and best of all - they were all in tune with each other, so that the service was always seamless, regardless of whom I was speaking to in the moment. I contacted them in April and my system has been up and running for several weeks now.
