Protect Your Family With Solar and Batteries
Mike "Tech Overlord" Collette
Now, more than ever, it's time to protect your family with home solar and batteries.
The Pandemic And Your Electric Bill
From coast to coast, many states are fighting the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) with shelter in place orders. Parents are home with their children because schools are not opening back up to full time learning and more and more businesses are urging their employees to work from home. Because of this, many Americans will be using and relying on more daytime energy than they ever did before — A LOT MORE!
Getting home solar can be the right decision for many people. They will pay much less per kilowatt-hour for clean, homegrown solar power than what they would otherwise when buying electricity from their utility company. Additionally, people can use their home solar and battery systems to gain financial benefit through net metering.
The last thing people need to worry about right now is a power outage, especially during a time when people are most dependent on their homes! When fully charged, your battery can hold approximately 8-12 hours of backup power, and will recharge daily when the sun rises. You also choose which rooms and appliances to back up, meaning you can keep your food cold, your phones charged, and the lights on during a power outage. The more batteries you add the more you can back up!
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.
Batteries paired with a solar system are essential for energy independence! Protect your home from the next power outage. You can rest assured that even when your neighbors lose power, your home will still be humming!
Utility Rates Continue To Soar Every Year
Retail residential electricity rates (the amount you pay per kilowatt-hour, or ¢/kWh) have risen across the nation about 15% over the last 10 years.
Electricity is a volatile market with many factors affecting the rate. The general consensus is that, like many recent years, electricity rates are getting higher for end users in 2020.
Are you financially prepared to pay more and more for your electricity as time goes on? A lot of homeowners are getting sick and tired of lining the pockets of those evil utility companies! Adding Solar Panels to your home is the best way to insulate yourself from soaring utility rates. Switch to Solar and protect your family from the rising costs of electricity.
Home Batteries vs Generators
Solar batteries offer long-lasting power. A battery typically provides approximately 8 to 12 hours of backup power, without additional fuel costs or pollution — putting the power of clean energy in the hands of the people whenever the grid goes down. Plus, with a home battery, you don't have to worry about whether you'll be able to get more fuel.
Solar batteries store energy, turn on and recharge automatically. When the lights go out, a Solar Wolf Energy battery turns on and powers the circuits that are most important to you. Many people choose to use this energy to power their garage door, WiFi, kitchen appliances, and lighting when the grid is down. The battery automatically recharges from the solar energy system, so you can keep your system running without lifting a finger.
Solar batteries are safe and quiet. Batteries run on clean, renewable power. This makes them safer than generators, which emit dangerous fumes like Carbon Monoxide, require homeowners to store cans of gasoline for refueling, and run extension cords to power appliances within the home. Batteries are also quiet, making about as much noise as a refrigerator. Compare that to generators, which are as loud as a vacuum cleaner.
Generators give off carbon monoxide. Portable generators kill approximately 70 people per year, and standby units powered by diesel fuel also give off nitrous oxide, which can cause dizziness, a loss of consciousness and even death. Portable generators for home use must be operated outside, at least 20 feet away from windows, doors, and vents to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, and it's recommended to install carbon monoxide detectors to monitor indoor air quality.
Generators may pose a fire danger. Beyond the cost, where one lives can dictate whether a portable generator is a good choice for backup power. Due to electrical hazards and fire danger, operating standalone fuel-powered generators in wildfire-prone areas is not recommended.
Generators are super noisy. While some pricier inverter generators produce around 50 decibels, generators can reach decibels of 110 — similar to the noise level at a live concert.
Generator systems are less reliable than home batteries, as measured by warranty duration, and require more upkeep. Portable and Standby generators often have 3-5 year warranties that exclude normal wear and tear. Battery systems warranties can be as long as 10, and can include full coverage for parts and labor. Additionally, customers must run most portable generators on a monthly basis to ensure that the motor will continue to work. Compare that to solar and battery systems, which are set it and forget it.
