Once you’ve decided to install a home solar system, you’ll also need to stock up on the appropriate solar products to accompany your new system. You may have heard about solar battery backup, but you aren’t sure what it is or why you need it. Our team at Green House Solar explains, and if you have any questions please contact us.
What is Solar Battery Backup?
Solar battery backup is essentially storage for the energy generated by your solar panels that you instantly use when you need it, like during a power outage or overnight. Excess energy generated by your solar panels during the day will go into the battery, and it’s available on demand. Solar powered batteries are recharged by the sun, making theman extremely convenient option to accompany your home solar system.
Why You Need It
If you experience a power outage during a storm, or if for some reason your home is using more energy than your solar panels can generate in real time, a backup solar battery is critical. We’ve seen an increase in inclement weather conditions, whether it’s rain storms or blizzards, and you need to be prepared in case the power grid goes down. And with more of us now working from home, having wifi around the clock is a must.
Can It Be Installed To Existing Solar Panels?
Yes, solar batteries can be installed to existing solar panels by an experienced solar installer. Home solar systems generally have a very long lifespan of several decades, so even if your solar panels are more than 10 years old, we can add a solar battery to your system.
