Solar System With Battery Backup: Keep Your Appliances Running Anytime
Everyone knows how inconvenient a power outage can be. At Enopte, we can install a solar system with battery backup so that you’ll never have to experience a blackout ever again.
If you want to become more energy-independent, getting a solar battery is the perfect solution. Our company also provides multiple kWh options to ensure that your battery has enough capacity to power up your property.
Standalone Solar System vs. Battery Backup
Not every solar energy system has a battery backup. Most people simply buy standalone solar panels and connect them to the energy grid. Any excess electricity will be exported back to the grid in exchange for energy credits.
To make sure that you’ll have a constant power supply, you’ll need a battery backup system in addition to getting solar panels. This solar battery will store excess energy for future use.
In most cases, getting a solar battery is best for the following:
- Homes with low electricity consumption
- Properties in areas that frequently experience blackouts
- Clinics or hospitals that use life support machines
- Business properties that cannot operate without electricity
- Properties in areas where the solar feed-in tariff rate is low
It’s also possible to retrofit a battery backup system to existing solar panels. If you find that your solar panels produce more energy than you can consume, this is a good option to consider.
Benefits Of A Battery Backup System
Getting a solar battery can be a great investment for your home or business property. Here are some of the key benefits of getting a solar energy battery system:
Power Up Your Property At Night
Solar panels work by converting sunlight into electricity. If this electricity remains unused, it’s exported to the grid for a modest feed-in tariff rate.
With a solar battery, you can store excess energy produced during the day. Later in the evening, you can draw power from the battery instead of consuming electricity from the grid.
Having a home battery backup system lessens your reliance on electricity from retailers. You never have to worry about the rising costs of electricity ever again.
At Enopte, we even have a proprietary Energy Management Dashboard that helps you keep track of your consumption and stay on budget. It produces minute-by-minute reports and helps you monitor your batteries’ performance.
Gain Backup Power
If you lose electricity, it’s easy to think that you can simply switch to solar power. But unfortunately, solar panels still need electricity from the grid to work, unless they’re connected to a battery.
The battery does the double duty of powering up the solar system so that it continues to produce energy. It also helps you power up your home.
Enopte also gives you the option to add a diesel-powered backup. Even after you use up all the stored energy from your batteries, you won’t have to live in the dark.
Can A Solar Battery Enable You To Go Off-Grid?
Most solar energy systems stay connected to the grid. This gives you a steady supply of electricity even after the solar battery runs out. It’s also more cost-effective: you only need to purchase a small battery that can power up major appliances during a power outage.
If you have a small, well-insulated property, then you can consider off-grid living. For this, you’ll need to buy a battery that has enough capacity to power major appliances for prolonged periods
Designing A Home Solar Energy System With A Battery Backup
Every property has unique requirements. You’ll need to look at the following factors when designing a solar energy system with a battery backup:
A battery’s energy capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh). Most homes can get by with just a battery capacity of 7.5 kWh for emergencies.
However, you’ll need to consider a system with a higher capacity if you want a solar system that can provide backup power for a long time. Your solar panels should also produce enough electricity to provide enough charge.
Talk To Us About Your Home Battery Backup Needs
Having a battery storage system can help power major appliances in case of a blackout. It also allows you to consume most of the electricity produced by solar panels instead of exporting it to the grid.
