Battery backup provides you peace of mind. With an energy storage system for your solar, your life doesn’t get interrupted when the power goes out. In the Carolinas, solar systems stop providing energy when an outage occurs as a safety precaution, preventing injury to neighbors and energy grid workers.
With battery backup, your solar system will be able to continuously keep your house running. Once the power has been restored, thing go back to normal – you use your solar power or grid power, and charge your battery banks from your solar.
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, perhaps you can run a single air conditioning unit. With minimal impact on your energy use, you can enjoy a normal day.
The Power Goes Out for 3 Days
Your solar system provides power to charge the battery. It allows you to use energy during the day while charging the battery to use at night. If you want, your fridge stays on. You don’t have to worry about eating all the ice cream, or what to do with wild game in that garage freezer!
