Back-Up Power

Adding a home battery to your solar system can have enormous benefits. Having a battery allows you to use more solar energy in your home, or to save that energy, so you can use it as backup power if the grid goes down. Solar battery systems work by converting the energy that is being produced by your solar panels and storing it as power for later use.

By installing solar batteries, you are able to maximize the use of the electricity produced by your solar panels on a day-to-day basis. During nighttime and the later hours of the day when your solar panels are not generating as much electricity, you are able to use the solar energy you have stored in your battery.


Having a battery system also can save you money in the case that you pay monthly demand charges or have time-of-use rates for your electricity, because you can use the power you have stored in your battery when the electricity rates are higher.


Solar batteries store the excess electricity that your solar panels produce instead of sending it back to the grid. In the case that your panels are not generating enough electricity, which is usually at nighttime or in the later hours of the day, you can use the electricity stored in your battery, instead of drawing it from the grid.  

In conclusion, this means that homes with a solar battery can store excess solar power that they can use later when the sun isn’t shining.


In the case that your solar panels aren't working for any reason, or there is a power outage in your area, you can draw electricity from your battery. Your battery will serve as a short-term backup power source and you will be able to continue using electricity in your home. 


Owning a solar panel system that generates electricity to your house saves you money on your utility bills, since the energy you need to use in your home is produced by the suns solar energy. 

However, having a solar battery system will save you even more money, since it will minimize the power you need to use from the grid, which means that it will minimize the electricity you need to purchase from your utility company.


Your solar battery will allow you to continue using the energy produced by your solar panels during nighttime or when the sun isn't shining, decreasing the amount of electricity you need to use from the grid or eliminating it all together.


In the case that your solar battery is full, it will transfer electricity to the grid which will give you credit from your utility company. If you need to use energy from your grid, you can use the credit you have obtained by transferring your electricity from your battery to the grid, and save money on your electricity bill. 


Installing a solar energy system and a battery system will give you control of your power. By installing a solar system and a battery, you will minimize or eliminate the need to use electricity from the grid. This means that you will no longer be dependent on buying electricity from your utility company.

When your solar battery is fully charged, you will also send electricity back to the grid which will in most cases give you credit from your utility company. You will need this credit in the case that your battery is empty and you need to draw electricity from the grid.
