Peninsula Clean Energy is offering a payment of $1,250 to residents of San Mateo County who install solar panels with battery backup power. The Power On Peninsula program helps residents maintain power during grid outages while moving the county toward 100 percent renewable energy. Participants will also benefit from solar power and have the opportunity to sell any excess generation back to the grid.
Peninsula Clean Energy is working with Sunrun, a leading provider of residential solar and backup battery systems. Sunrun will design, install and maintain the solar electric system and backup batteries. The panels charge the batteries by day, and they provide backup power in case of a grid shutdown.
