Battery and Home Backup

BATTERIES & HOME BACKUP

Home batteries and other means of home power backup, such as generators, are an excellent option for homeowners who deal with frequent power outages and blackouts, or are billed at a higher rate for power used at certain times of day. These devices allow homeowners to store energy produced by their solar panels and use it at a later time, typically either when the grid is down or when panels aren’t producing power. 

HOW HOME BATTERIES WORK

Home batteries are a great way to store the energy generated by your solar panels to use strategically, either when your panels aren’t producing power, during a grid outage, or when your utility charges higher rates. Home batteries are charged with energy produced by solar panels, and can be discharged later to power your home. 

 

Home batteries have sophisticated discharge management capability, which allows homeowners to set preferences for the times and circumstances in which to use stored energy, and the devices and appliances to power in those circumstances. 

Solar panels convert photons into DC energy.

Photons from solar radiation collide with PV cells on solar panels, knocking loose electrons that form a DC electrical current.

Inverter converts DC energy into usable AC power.

The inverter takes the DC current generated by solar panels and converts it to AC power, which is usable in the home.

Excess production is stored or passed back to the grid.

Excess power can either be sent back onto the grid (which usually generates credits through net metering) or stored in a battery.

WHY INSTALL A HOME BATTERY?

STORE ENERGY FOR LATER USE

A home battery allows you to store energy produced by your solar panels for use at night, on cloudy days, and at other times when your panels aren’t producing power.                 

AVOID POWER OUTAGES

Storing energy in a home battery keeps you prepared for power outages and blackouts. Many solar systems are also capable of recharging batteries while the grid is down, ensuring power during extended outages

LOWER YOUR ELECTRICITY BILLS

Home batteries are a great way to manage energy usage by time of day – ideal for energy billing structures that charge a premium during specific time windows.

MANAGE ENERGY SUCKERS

Battery systems can also be set to supply power to certain high-usage appliances and devices, minimizing extra charges under demand charge billing structures.   

TYPES OF HOME BACKUP

Off-Grid Back-up Solution

An off-grid system is not connected to the electricity grid and therefore requires battery storage. An off-grid solar system must be designed appropriately so that it will generate enough power throughout the year and have enough battery capacity to meet the home’s requirements, even in the depths of winter when there is less sunlight. The high cost of batteries and inverters means off-grid systems are much more expensive than on-grid systems and so are usually only needed in more remote areas that are far from the electricity grid. However battery costs are reducing rapidly, so there is now growing market for off-grid solar battery systems even in cities and town

Hybrid Back-Up Solution

Hybrid solar systems combines the best from grid-tie and off-grid solar systems. These systems can either be described as off-grid solar with utility backup power, or grid-tie solar with extra battery storage.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A HOME BATTERY

Capacity

The first factor to consider in a home battery is the storage capacity. Is your goal partial home backup or whole home backup? How much energy do you consume? These considerations will help you determine your ideal capacity.

Manufacturer's Warranty

Evaluate the length and coverage of the manufacturer's warranty for any home battery you consider. Most reputable brands offer a 10 year manufacturer's warranty against defects and malfunctions.

Compatibility

If you already have a solar installation, ensure your home battery is compatible with your panels and inverter. Know whether or not your battery system will be capable of charging while the grid is down.

How much should I pay for a home battery?

The right price to pay for solar panels is different for every homeowner, and depends on a number of factors. Determining the right price starts with an evaluation of energy usage and billing structure, which will help determine the ideal strategy and capacity to design the battery system for. The next consideration is whether to design for partial- or whole-home backup. 

This thought process will allow you to identify the home backup solution that makes the most sense for you.
