You’ve most likely heard of solar panels, but have you heard of a solar backup system? Solar backup systems, which sometimes come in the form of a solar battery, can be very beneficial in maximizing your home’s energy usage while lowering your energy consumption. With the cost of living continuing to rise, this is very attractive to homeowners and business owners alike. Here are several key advantages of a solar backup system.
Solar Backup Systems Manage Grid Cost
Most of us belong to our local energy grid, which means our energy prices fluctuate throughout the year and are most likely expensive in the summer. Even if you already have solar panels, there may be times when you need to pull energy from the grid and your costs increase.
A solar backup system helps you manage grid cost by kicking in when your energy usage is particularly high, and it can store excess energy and release it at exactly the right time. This way you won’t have to draw more power from the grid and can instead continue powering your home with free, renewable energy.
It Comes with Government Incentives
There are several federal and state incentives you can use to help offset the cost of purchasing, installing, or upgrading a home solar system, including:
- Solar Investment Tax Credit: this incentive offers a 30% discount on all solar systems installed in tax years 2022 through 2032. You are eligible to claim this credit once.
- The state of New Jersey also offers various solar tax credits and rebates, such as Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs), the Solar Investment Property Tax Exemption, and the Solar Panel System Sales Tax Exemption. Contact our team to learn more about each of these options.
A Constant Source of Power
Blackouts and power outages happen from time to time, especially during months where we experience severe weather conditions. Fortunately, with a solar backup system, you can continue powering your home even when the grid goes down. This is especially important for people with young children and for older adults who require certain medical equipment.
