Benefits of Backup Batteries

A secondary charging source can be an attractive option and can increase the performance of your system while reducing its overall cost. This option is called a “hybrid system” and usually involves the integration of some sort of generator. Having a generator as part of your backup system may allow you to reduce the overall size of the battery bank and solar array while actually increasing reliability. With a hybrid system, when your batteries get low you can simply start the generator and run it until the batteries charge. Some systems and generators can even make this process automatic.

There are several key benefits to this configuration including:

  • With multiple backup sources, you have more latitude over what you can power during an outage
  • The battery system will be able to provide supplemental power to supply the surge current needed to start certain motors
  • You will be able to operate your generator at or near full load conditions which will make the most of your available fuel

Considering Solar with Battery Backup? Here's What to Do Next.

What are your next steps? First, make up your “wish list” of the necessities you can’t live without during an emergency. Next, make sure you do everything you can to upgrade these items to the most efficient ones possible. It makes no sense to spend thousands extra on batteries to power a 15-year-old refrigerator when you could invest in a modern unit that is 10 times more efficient.

Once you have an idea of how you want the system to perform and what you wish to energize, it will be relatively easy for your sales rep to quote a system for you. Without a solid foundation to design from, however, the size and cost of the system are anyone’s guess and you run the risk of your system being too small, which means it won't perform, or too large, which means you spent more than you needed.

Add a little sunshine to your day.
