Backup Battery Information
For people with solar powered homes, solar batteries store power when your solar panels are not producing enough electricity. A solar power battery backup is necessary to store energy in order to convert the DC power produced from solar panels to AC power for later use. When solar panels produce more energy than necessary, the excess energy goes into the solar powered battery backup for later use. A solar powered home is usually connected to the grid in order to supply power to your home when the sun is not shining.
When the panels are producing more electricity than needed, the extra power gets bounced back to the grid. You should see a credit on your electric bill when this happens. When you have an AVA Electrical solar panel battery backup, you will save money because you won’t need the backup power from the electric company anymore. If you do not have net metering and receive time of use or demand service from the electric company, then you will definitely save money with a solar panel battery backup. The battery will also retain power when you lose connection to the grid during a power outage. Get one if you want to store renewable energy for later use at a fair cost. A solar panel battery back-up can last up to fifteen years, so it is a good long term investment for your home and family.
