Always Have Power
You’ll always have power when you add solar to your home. During the day, when the sun is shining, you’ll have enough power to run your home. However, at night and times when the weather is cloudy, you’ll need assistance from the grid. Typically, net-metering allows you to generate solar energy during the day and sell extra energy back into the grid. The company, in most cases, allows you to credit that towards the energy your home uses at night. Essentially the idea is for these two to cancel each other out and eliminate your energy bill completely. However, there may be times when service is interrupted or a storm rolls in and you don’t generate as much energy.
Here’s where Texas Solar Professional Back-up Power Systems come in.
These systems utilize specialized solar batteries to store energy for when you need it. During the day, you’ll be generating the most energy. Most times, the kids are at school, the adults will be working or running errands, and energy usage will be less. While some of this can go back into the grid, you can also store some in a solar battery to offset your usage at night. With enough battery power you can run your home at night or during those bad weather days without reliance on the grid, though the battery storage may be costly. You can also use a backup power system to run your essential appliances, such as your refrigerator or possibly your air conditioning unit, when the power from the grid goes out. Naturally you’ll still be connected to the grid, and be able to still utilize electricity, but these systems allow you to cut some costs and benefit you in the long run.
