What Happens During a Blackout When You Have a Solar Battery?
A solar battery or battery backup takes electricity from your panels to store for an emergency. Battery backup can also deploy in the evenings when your panels stop generating.
With battery backup, a blackout won’t be a problem. The grid will still go down, but your battery can safely deploy electricity. Battery backup is often used to provide coverage for critical appliances like air conditioners, freezers, refrigerators, and other essential items. The system could also be used for office equipment like computers, printers, internet routers, and other essential devices.
The limitations of a solar battery backup system are determined by your unique needs, your budget, and the available space to place the equipment. Some larger systems can continue running for days during a major blackout, while others will provide a few hours of power under full load.
We will customize a solution to suit your needs based on your energy demands, the historical and predicted risk of blackouts in your area, and other factors unique to your situation. New York Power Solutions installs the most reliable solar battery systems in the state.
