In 2016 it is easier than ever to make the switch to partial or complete solar power in your Seattle area home. Solar batteries, panels, and related technology have been developing for decades, and with companies like Atlas Power Corp. specializing in the installation, maintenance, and upgrades of solar systems, there are plenty of reasons to consider the transition. Here are just a few of them.

Greater Independence

Whether you’re considering an off-the-grid home that’s supplied entirely by solar power, or simply would like a backup battery to supplement your standard electrical system, solar batteries allow you the independence to operate lighting, climate control, and appliances in your home without having to depend on a power grid that may not always be reliable.

Emergency Preparedness

Solar batteries allow you to continue living normally and comfortably, even when grids go down. Weather can be unpredictable and violent, and every year thousands of homes are left without power as a result. That doesn’t have to be the case for your home.


It’s no secret that almost all of Seattle’s electricity is supplied through the burning of fuels that are not only limited in their availability, but which actually cause extensive damage to the environment. Solar power is a clean energy source that will be available for as long as the sun is shining.

As hundreds of Atlas Power Corp. clients already know, there’s never been a better time to transition away from the power grid to a solar power system for your home. Contact us today to learn more about how we can make it happen!
