How Does A Generac Solar Battery Backup Work?
What It Does
A Generac backup battery system keeps unused energy from your solar panels stored and available to be used later. Power outages or at night when your solar panels don’t generate any electricity are both examples of times when this backup could be useful.
How It Works
Solar panels are only actively creating electricity while the sun is out. At night or when your solar panels aren’t getting enough sunlight, the grid provides the electricity you need. During a power outage, you lose that grid connection which could compromise your electricity source. By storing excess solar energy inside your battery, you can power portions of your home independent of the grid through your battery backup.
What It Means For You
POWERHOME SOLAR recommends bundling a Generac battery backup with your solar panel system to get the most return on your investment. With a Generac battery backup, you get the highest value out of your solar energy. Watch the video to see how it works.
Customize Your Generac Battery Backup
Just as solar panels are a customizable solution, Generac battery backups can address multiple energy needs. Accordingly, Generac has four power modes and each one is designed for different scenarios. Here’s how you can customize your battery backup power:
Clean Backup Mode
Clean Backup Mode sends all of the energy created by your solar panels directly to your backup battery. This keeps the battery at 100% capacity so that in case of an outage, you have as much energy as possible to power your home.
With this mode, you can store excess energy in your battery to use at a later time. When your battery reaches 100%, it sends excess energy back to the grid.
Priority Backup Mode
This is similar to Clean Backup Mode, except you also can use power from the grid to bring your battery to full capacity.
Grid mode is meant for when you don’t have a battery attached to your solar system. When you add one, that’s where the three other modes come in handy.
Where Will My Generac Battery Backup System Live?
We will set up your Generac battery backup system outside of your living space. Depending on your architecture and building codes, it might be mounted against a wall in your garage or on the side of your home. The battery will also be protected by a cover shield so that it can withstand the Atlanta weather as well!
