Protect Your Home From Power Outages With Battery Backup
Mike "Tech Overlord" Collette
Home Battery backup systems are the wave of the future. Home Batteries offer seamless backup power, with or without solar! When paired with a home solar system they can virtually eliminate blackouts in an off-the-grid lifestyle. It's time to ditch those loud gas eating generators for a virtually silent backup power source.
What Is a Self-Powered Home?
A self-powered home combines solar energy and home battery backup to independently power your home day and night. During the day, solar panels may produce more energy than your home uses. Batteries store that excess solar energy and makes it available on demand, even after the sun has set. Through the Battery app, you will have full visibility into your self-powered home.
How does Battery Backup work during an outage?
Home Batteries can detect an outage, disconnect from the grid, and automatically restore power to your home in a fraction of a second. You will not even notice that the power went out. Your lights and appliances will continue to run without interruption.
If you have solar and home batteries, then solar energy will continue to power your home and recharge those batteries. Without home battery backup, solar will shut down during an outage.
Compact and Simple
Battery backup is a completely automated system that installs easily and requires no maintenance.
Time-Based Control. A Smart Way to Use Energy
If your utility prices vary throughout the day, set your home battery in Time-Based Control to maximize savings. Your battery learns patterns in your energy usage and solar generation—using stored energy to avoid purchasing high-cost electricity.
Home Batteries Provide Energy Independence
Batteries paired with a solar system are essential for energy independence! Protect your home from the next power outage and keep your lights on, phones charged, and no puddles under the fridge. You can rest assured that even when your neighbors lose power, your home will still be humming!
