Home Battery Backup
Backup Battery Storage in Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, CA
Don’t be left in the dark when you need power the most, with a backup battery your house can still run on power during an outage while still offsetting your power bill. When power is normally being produced by your solar panel system it’s available on the grid and any excess energy used by your home or business is sent to the utility grid. If there is a power outage the backup battery will automatically turn on to power up your home or business. The combination of solar energy and battery storage work together almost like an off- grid system.
When grid supplied power goes down everything is shut off and disconnected and no longer providing electricity to your home, business or any other equipment. That is why a solar backup battery system is needed, so power is always being provided to you!
When you install a solar battery as part of your solar panel system, you are able to store extra solar electricity at your home or business instead of sending it back to the grid. If your solar panels are producing more electricity than you need, the extra energy goes towards charging the battery. If your solar panels are not producing electricity you can use the energy you stored in your battery for night use or in case of a power outage. You will only start to send electricity back to the grid when your battery is fully charged, and you will only take electricity from the grid when your battery is completely exhausted.
Solar storage systems can also be used to help reduce expensive peak time of use utility charges. These systems allow you to take power from your batteries during peak rate hours and then recharge when rates are lower or the sun is shining. A backup battery will assist with monitoring your time-of-use rates, as you can use the energy you’ve stored on the battery at higher peak rate times.
Long gone are the loud, smelly, gas powered generators. With a solar backup battery system you will always know that your home or business’s energy is coming from a complete renewable source. You are truly generating, storing and using your own power whether you stay physically connected to the grid or not. Contact us for all your home energy storage needs 888-604-0226.
