Eichler owners' energy-storage battery
runs cars and home from rooftop solar
Barry and Rosemary Brisco of the San Mateo Highlands have seen the future—and it looks compelling enough, they say, to sustainably power their Eichler—and yours too—during a blackout.
"I think that, in the future, most solar-energy homes will have a battery," predicts Barry, a 16-year Eichler owner. "It makes sense economically and practically."
"It's just another opportunity to be at the leading edge of technology," agrees Jarom Feriante, CEO of Dura-Foam Roofing & Solar Center, which installed photovoltaic (PV) panels and a Tesla Powerwall battery system recently at the Brisco Eichler.
