Storm Guard

Storm Guard is an Enlighten application feature that monitors the severe weather condition alerts issued by National Weather Service (NWS). If a severe weather alert is active in your locality, then it prioritizes the energy storage to protect you from weather-related grid outages.

The Storm Guard feature can be in one of the following two states:

  1. Enabled: When Enabled, the Storm Guard feature monitors severe weather condition alerts issued by National Weather Service (NWS). If an alert is issued for your locality then it overrides your battery profile to ‘Full Backup’ mode. This allows your entire battery capacity to be reserved for use during a potential grid outage.

  2. Disabled: In this state the severe weather condition alerts are not monitored for your locality. If there’s an active alert then you may face a blackout due to weather-related grid outages in case your batteries are out of charge. Therefore it is recommended to keep the Storm Guard feature enabled as it reserves charge in your batteries to protect you from such outages.

How to enable/disable Storm Guard feature
  • Step 1: Go to the Menu page
  • Step 2: Select “Battery Storage” under "Settings"
  • Step 3: Use the Toggle button to enable/disable the Strom Guard feature
