Solar Backup Systems Are the New Generators

Solar power is all about making your home less reliant on the electrical grid, whether it’s to save money or support a more earth-friendly lifestyle. It’s important to remember that even though your solar system harnesses the power of the sun to generate energy, it is still reliant on the grid to operate – so, if the power goes out, your solar system will also shut down.

Usually, the go-to method of accessing power when the grid is down is to start up a generator, but there’s a far more effective, quieter and environmentally-friendly way to keep your solar system running – a solar backup system.

What is a Solar Backup System? 

This is a system that will kick into gear in the event that the power goes down, if you want to live completely off-grid or in the event that your solar system isn’t generating enough power in peak demand times.

Each backup system has to be designed to meet the unique specifications of your home system, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. It’s composed of batteries and other components that keep the batteries and your system running when it needs to be. The batteries themselves are usually lithium due to the longer lifespan and minimal maintenance of these products, and the way they work make it easier for homeowners to control the system from a simple app.

Despite the lower cost of a fossil fuel generator, solar backup systems are gaining quickly in popularity, and it’s not hard to see why they’re the first choice for homeowners. Not only do these systems seamlessly switch over in the event of high demand or an outage, they also charge quickly off the solar panels (no fossil fuel usage), are completely quiet, and they are completely customizable to your needs so you can provide your entire home with energy.

While gas backup has its place, solar backup is better and cheaper in the long run, with lower maintenance costs and their ability to handle long-term power outages with ease as long as the sun keeps rising! There are also great tax credits available for solar battery and backup systems, making them more affordable than ever.
