How To Get the Most of Your Backup Battery Solution

Keep Your Backup Batteries Charged

This may seem like a no-brainer, but you would be surprised how many people forget! Make sure to charge your backup batteries regularly, so they are always ready to go in an emergency. If you only have one backup battery, we recommend keeping it charged at all times. However, if you have multiple batteries, you can rotate them so that they are all evenly charged.

Have a Plan in Place

In the event of a power outage, it's important to have a plan in place. This way, you'll know exactly what to do and who to contact. First, you should identify the essential equipment that needs to be powered by your backup battery. This could include things like your computer, phone, or any other equipment that you use for your business.

Use Only the Necessary Appliances

When the power goes out, it can be tempting to want to use all the appliances in your home. However, this is not necessary, and it'll only drain your battery faster. Instead, focus on using only the essentials. This may include a few lights, your fridge, and your phone charger. Doing this can conserve your battery power and make it last longer.

Are Battery Backups Worth It With Solar?

If you have a solar panel system, you may wonder if you still need a backup battery. The answer is yes! Even with solar panels, there are times when the sun isn't shining, and your panels aren't producing enough power. This is where a backup battery comes in handy. We recommend getting a backup battery compatible with your solar panel system. This way, you can store the energy from your panels and use it when needed.

How To Add Battery Back-Up to an Existing Grid-Tied Solar System

If you have a grid-tied solar system, you may be wondering how to add a backup battery. The good news is that it's not as difficult as you might think! There are a few different options available, and we'll go over some of the most popular ones. The first option is to add a battery backup to your existing inverter. This is a relatively simple process, and most solar installers can do it.

Another option is to purchase a separate inverter specifically designed for battery backup systems. This option may be more expensive, but it's a good choice if you want a dedicated backup system.

The last option is to purchase a complete battery backup system. This option includes the inverter and the batteries, and it's the most expensive choice. However, it's also the easiest to install and use. If you're unsure which option is best for you, we recommend talking to a solar installer. They can help you determine which system works best for your needs.
