As Tesla-certified installers, we can install a Tesla Powerwall battery in your Boulder home. It’s the #1 lithium-ion battery system on the market, and provides 7 kWh of power storage for peak, anytime use. It also has a sleek and compact design and comes with a 10-year warranty. The best part? You can get real-time feedback on power use through the convenient Tesla app!

Note: Due to supply shortages, there may be a longer wait time for Tesla Powerwalls.

Looking for another brand? We also offer an array of energy storage brands, including Enphase Empower. We’re also trained to install solar batteries regardless of who originally installed your home’s solar panels.

While Boulder has a growing number of electric vehicle super-charging locations, it’s far more cost-effective to charge from the convenience and comfort of home.

Customer story in Boulder

Customer’s request: Boulder homeowner, Elliot, spent a considerable amount of time researching solar installers. Disappointed by how major companies treated him, he was relieved to interact with the friendly and professional team at Photon Brothers. After receiving thoughtful designs and an honest estimate, Elliot decided to have Photon Brothers install his new custom solar system.

Our solution: Throughout the installation process, our team delivered on efficiency, quality and a 5-star customer experience. Elliot’s sales rep, Krista, and project manager, Eric, worked hard to deliver a solar setup tailored to Elliot’s best interest. And on the day of his installation, the team went above and beyond to accommodate Elliot’s schedule. Thrilled to finally be enjoying the benefits of solar, Elliot is happy to recommend Photon Brothers for both affordability and personalization.

“Solar is complicated… so it can be tricky to decide who to go with. [We] went through a thorough selection process and ultimately decided to partner with Photon Brothers. Krista, our rep, and Eric Hopf, our project manager, expertly walked us through options that were in our best interests, from the size of the system to which purchase model would work best for us. At the end of the day, I’m confident that we got a better price, and the perfect system to suit our needs, and this was all due to a project experience that felt more like a partnership than a sales quota. If you’ve been thinking about solar, I can’t recommend Photon Brothers highly enough.”
