Why You Need a Battery Backup for Your Solar Energy System

If you have solar panels installed on your home, you are already benefiting from the free energy of the sun. However, what do you do on days when there is no sun? Many solar systems are grid-tied, allowing you to keep your home powered even when there isn't any sun. However, if there is a bad storm or other problem, and the grid goes down, you may be left without power.

By installing a solar battery backup, you can store the free energy your system produces for later use. This can help you keep your system running smoothly, even when the power grid goes down. Battery backups are particularly important for homeowners who do not have grid-tied solar systems. If you are completely independent of the grid, this battery backup is crucial to keeping your power on.

A battery backup can help you keep the power on:

  • During snowstorms or rainstorms
  • At night or on days when there isn't much sun
  • When the power grid goes down
  • During emergencies or natural disasters
