Think Solar Only Works When The Sun Is Shining? Think Again!
When you install battery storage along with your solar panel system, you can store excess solar electricity produced by your panels for use later on when the sun goes down, when your panels aren’t producing power. Solar batteries provide many benefits for property owners, including increased savings and disaster resiliency. If your electric utility uses a time-of-use (TOU) rate structure or demand charges, having solar battery backup can save you money on your electric bill. Aside from saving money on your electric bill, solar batteries can provide backup power in the case of a grid blackout. If the power goes out and you have solar electricity stored in a home battery, you can power your home for a period of time using the electricity you generated with your solar panels. There are certain specifications you should use when evaluating your solar battery options, such as how long the solar battery will last or how much power it can provide. Contact one of the solar energy experts to learn about all of the different types of solar batteries and the criteria necessary to make a decision about which energy storage option is best for you.
