Solar homeowners everywhere are experiencing pushback from utility companies as they attempt to create Net Energy Metering and impose adjusted pricing for those producing their own power. Tier rates are minimized, base line structures are raised, and the goal is to charge for any energy that is consumed whenever your solar electric system is not producing. Good news is there’s another way for you to save! As the gap between solar producers and utility companies widens, the enmity created a way for new technology. Make way for solar storage systems!

Battery Integration FAQ's
What happens when the power goes down, there is no sun or I want to get off the grid?
While solar panels are constantly absorbing and providing you electrical current, they are feeding it directly into your panel breaker. Electricity is continuously flowing into the grid and processed through the utility provider. It always needs somewhere to flow. If the power goes down, there are required shut-off and bypass relays and switches that are installed to each system based on your specific cities code requirements to prevent any danger to workers that may be tending the power grid during such time. Thus, your solar system will be completely disempowered for the time of service loss. While it is possible to re-route your systems electrical production to local use only, it is not allowed. There is good news however, is that technology is on the horizon with the increasing use of battery back-up systems and integration.
How long can I go without power on a battery back-up system?
On a battery back-up system your power is measured in cycles and a system can hold up to 1.5 cycles a day, and store free power for about 1-3 days.
What is the advantage of installing a storage unit and having battery integration?
Installing a storage unit not only assists you in keeping your solar power contained for your use alone, but it also assists in the event of a black out by supplying you power when there is no other source. In addition, battery integration will allow you to store up to two days of power on a cycle for continuing use. Why is this so important you may ask? Several utility companies are changing their tier structures and rates for homeowners in combat for losing money to solar resources. Their newest combat to this issue is to start charging homeowners for the time they use energy at night, even if they have produced enough power to the grid that should be credited to them for use in the evening. Solar storage units allow the power you produce to remain your own and not the utilities.
