Solar Backup systems (also known as Solar Generators) combine solar PV and a Home Battery to continue providing power in the toughest times so you can breathe easy. While most solar systems are required to turn off during a grid outage for grid safety, Solar Backup systems continue generating power and storing energy in a battery for 24/7 use.
Home Battery systems raise the value of a solar system by increasing self-consumption of solar energy. Excess solar energy in the daytime is absorbed by the battery and used in the home at night, increasing the system’s overall cost efficiency and availability.
With the cost of Home Batteries such as Tesla Powerwall and LG RESU at an all-time low, a Solar Backup System is a smart investment that will continue to fuel your energy needs when the rest of the grid is dark. Remember to ask about Solar Backup when consulting with the Solar Alternatives team about your installation.
