The Storage page in Sales Mode allows you to add one or multiple batteries to your design and calculate how much backup power they will produce.
Adding Battery Storage in Sales Mode
Within Sales Mode, select the desired battery model from the dropdown menu and enter the quantity. Aurora will then calculate the backup length (in days) for:
- Essentials: Backup electrical fixtures and select outlets
- Appliances: Backup small appliances and essentials
- Whole Home: Backup major appliances and essentials
These numbers will automatically recalculate when adding or removing batteries. For more information on how these are calculated, see Backup Duration – Calculations.
Note: Adding batteries will not impact the homeowner’s post-solar energy usage or be factored into energy offset calculations.
Pricing Batteries in Sales Mode
Batteries are added as a line item on the Financing page in Sales Mode using the price for that model as specified by the account admin, multiplied by the quantity.
Note: To apply a discount for multiple batteries, admins can configure the discount(s) for the sales rep to add on the Adjust Pricing page in Sales Mode (ie. Second Battery Discount, Third Battery Discount, etc.)
Selecting Battery Options
In order for a battery model to appear in Sales Mode, it will need to be pre-selected by an account admin in the Database.
Within the Database, make sure that Restrict generation components is turned on. Search for the battery model you would like to add, then toggle it on to make it available in Sales Mode.
The price for each battery in the Database will be set to $0 by default. To change the price of a specific battery, first select the model, then click Edit, enter in the appropriate price, and click Save.
