Power, even during a blackout
And save by avoiding using electricity from the grid during peak hours.
No More Blackouts
Enjoy the safety and convenience of having electricity during a blackout. Simply continue using electricity.
Avoid the Expensive Peak Hours
Electric companies are extending peak hours, when electricity costs more, later into the night. With a battery, store your extra solar production for use in the evening and avoid the peak hour surcharge.
Keep Essential Appliances Running
Continue running your refrigerator, lights, TV, and computers running during the blackout.
Without batteries, your solar goes down with the grid
A common misconception for those with Solar Systems is that their system will continue to produce daytime power for their entire home. For the vast majority of Solar Systems, this is completely false.
Most Solar Systems are grid-tied. When the grid goes down, the solar system shuts off as well in order to prevent electricity from leaking into the grid. This regulation is to protect Utility workers working on the power lines.
How batteries work during a grid outage
When the grid goes down, the battery will facilitate its disconnect from the grid, preventing any electricity from leaking out. The battery will then mimic the grid in order to keep the Solar Inverter functioning.
The Solar System will power your home while also charging the battery. Once the sun sets, your home will begin to draw power from the battery. The next morning, the solar system will again begin charging the battery.
