The Supply Chain for Solar House Battery Systems is Growing
With a solar house battery, you can increase the efficiency of your Long Island solar installation. A battery can provide backup for an emergency and deploy in the evenings when your solar panels have shut down.
Battery technology is in high demand, but the U.S. has a problem with its supply chain. Investment is needed to improve and expand domestic production. A new coalition of industry leaders is aiming to do just that, and it’s great news for the solar business and homeowners.
The Coalition for American Battery Independence has Launched
This week, the Coalition for American Battery Independence officially launched. It already has major industry members like Panasonic, General Motors, Ford, and the Zero Emission Transportation Association.
The Coalition will combine industry expertise and a lobbying push to ensure that lawmakers support a sustainable future with a domestic supply chain for EV batteries, solar house battery systems, and other batteries used for a range of applications.
This is a step in the right direction and could go a long way to giving America the energy security that it lacks. Currently, 75% of lithium-ion batteries are produced offshore.
Through its ongoing work, the Coalition should also help to ensure that when you need a solar house battery, there will be affordable options from local installers like Long Island Power Solutions.
How Will the News Affect Your Long Island Solar Installation?
The formation of the Coalition for American Battery independence won’t affect your Long Island solar installation today. But it is likely to ensure that battery technologies and products are readily available in the future, at competitive costs.
As the industry stands today, internationally sourced batteries are already competitively priced, but there’s always room for improvement in the supply chain. Your Long Island solar installation already uses technology from companies like Panasonic, a key supplier of Long Island Power Solutions.
