Renu Energy Solutions can provide you with a battery backup option that will allow you peace of mind when the power goes out. Currently, when the power goes out, as as safety precaution to the energy grid workers, solar systems stop providing energy to the grid. Effectively, this creates a “closed loop” system. With battery backup as an option, your solar system will be able to continuously charge a battery that will help you keep your house running. Once the power has been restored, the system automatically goes back to normal.
Here are a few different examples of how the battery backup system might work in different scenarios:
If The Power Goes Out in The Middle of The Night
The charged battery powers your kitchen and critical appliances such as your coffee maker and garage door opener so you can get to work on time. You have hot water and can charge your cell phone. You can enjoy your coffee and get on with your day uninterrupted.
The Power Goes Out for 3 Days
Your solar system charges the battery until full. It allows you to use energy during the day while charging the battery to use at night. Your fridge stays on. You don’t have to worry about eating all the ice cream. Maybe your battery is fully charged and your solar system is still producing, while the grid is still down. Then it will probably be smart to take advantage of your daylight power, and do your energy-intensive tasks like running the clothes washer during the daytime.
Renu Energy Solutions has trained professionals who will make sure your battery is configured to stretch your stored power as long as possible in the event of a multi day-long outage. Our team will work with you to make your that the essential powered services in your home that you rely on – your kitchen appliances, garage door, maybe your bedroom air conditioner unit, and critical electronics – will stay energized until the power has been restored.
