Energy Storage Installers are the backbone of the solar-plus-storage market. They set up and maintain sophisticated battery storage equipment and wiring that connects to a residential, commercial, or utility-scale solar energy system.
Energy Storage and Battery Installers play a crucial role in connecting a solar system to battery storage. They may design and prepare the system layout based on specific site characteristics; obtain permits; measure, cut, assemble, and bolt structural framing and battery systems; safely attach battery systems to predetermined areas; inspect installed equipment, structures, or materials to determine code and safety compliance; and, finally, commission the system, ensuring that it meets basic performance estimates.
