We live in New England. Cloudy days, thunderstorms and snow are all par for the course. So, when looking into solar energy you’ve likely asked yourself a common question: will my solar energy system work when the sun is not out?
The answer is yes, it will, as long as you install a battery backup system together with your solar panels.
A battery back-up storage system stores energy for later use. Combined with solar panels, this enables you to run on solar energy night and day, on cloudy days, or importantly, when the power grid is down.
This also means when it is sunny and your panels are producing energy, you are using that energy and storing any excess energy for later use. This allows you to utilize solar energy day and night, summer and winter.
Part of living in New England means living with inclement weather and power outages. With a battery back-up system, your home and business will stay online even when the electrical grid is down. For more information on how battery storage can keep you safe during an outage, read on here.
A solar powered battery back-up system will give you greater independence from the electric grid and cut down on utility costs in the long run.
Need another reason? With generous new incentives, battery storage is usually more affordable than traditional generators, without the noise or reliability concerns.
