Energy Storage FAQ
Q: Will my solar stay on during a blackout?
A: Yes, when the sun is present, your solar system will recharge the batteries and provide power directly to your home. You can essentially continue this pattern for months on end, if necessary.
Q: What appliances will stay on during a blackout?
A: Every installation will include an essential loads panel.
This panel is used to safely distribute back-up power to essential loads, such as: your fridge, lights, radio and other necessities that are essential in the event of a black out.
Q: Does the battery system require maintenance?
A: No, battery maintenance is not required.
The battery inverter does not need replacing in it’s lifetime. The reason for this is that a battery inverter is not nearly as active as it’s solar counterpart.
Q: Are the batteries replaceable?
A: Yes, batteries can be quickly and efficiently replaced.
Q: Can the battery be used for off-grid systems?
A: Yes, but be very conscious of your usage habits.
If you under-design, the risk isn’t a higher leftover utility bill, it’s the possibility of being left in the dark.
