A great benefit in having home battery storage installed at your home or business is the security of knowing that your battery can help you power through a grid outage.
In the event of a utility grid outage (i.e. a ‘blackout’), you can use the power stored in your home batteries to power key appliances in your home. When the grid goes down, the backup circuit will kick in automatically as long as you have solar or battery power available.
It is important to understand that a backup supply cannot power your entire home, but instead is designed to power the key appliances you would require in the event of a power outage. These often include things like your lights, refrigerators, television and wifi.
At the time of installation, you and your installer can work together to choose the best appliances for your home to connect up to your backup circuit.
