When it comes to renewable energy, solar plus battery storage is the next big thing! Now batteries can let homeowners avoid high-cost energy, provide backup power, or even help cut the cord between homeowners and utility companies forever! This article will discuss the new Generac PWRcell solar battery, what you can expect from a solar battery, and how Generac PWRcell is right for you!
What is a Solar Battery?
A solar battery can provide a backup source of energy in the event of an outage and in some areas can even be used as a smart energy management system providing relief from “time of day” demand charges. When coupled with a solar array, the battery can be recharged and continue to provide power to a home, even during extended outages. A conventional grid-tied solar array will be shut down during an outage, rendering the solar panels dormant. A home battery can also provide independence from fossil fuels as an environmental and financial advantage.
What are the Benefits of a Solar Battery in New Jersey?
In New Jersey, solar batteries provide peace of mind during an emergency or power outage. Solar panels rely on the power grid to stay active. When the power grid goes down in the event of a power outage, the solar panels will go dormant. A solar battery will keep your solar panels up and running and power the critical loads in your home. The best part is that if you require more energy for your home, you can always add more solar batteries. They can be connected, which means that they can store a lot more power to keep your home appropriately energized. At Green Power Energy, we will work with the customer to establish what the critical loads are on the property so you have proper back up capacity in the event of an outage.
