Solar battery storage helps keep the lights on

Solar battery storage helps keep the electricity in your home flowing even when the sun isn’t shining. Integrating a battery system into your home solar setup helps you store energy to power your home even when the sun isn’t shining.

Solar battery storage on the side of a house.Solar panels often generate more energy than is immediately needed. With a solar battery storage system, you can capture the excess energy and use it later. Doing so maximizes your efficiency by letting less of that power generated go to waste.

If you have a whole home solar system, battery backup and storage systems help eliminate the need to get any power from the grid. Energy independence can be especially important in Florida. Strong storms and hurricanes can leave you without power for days. Your solar battery backups and panels will help you turn the lights and air conditioning back on without a noisy generator.

Your solar expert can help you determine how many batteries you need. That depends on how big your home is and how much electricity you need. Another factor is how long you want to be able to power your home when the sun isn’t shining. In the Sunshine State, we don’t have to go very long without sun.

Once you know how many batteries you need, you will want to find an appropriate place to store them. You will want them out of the way and in a place where they are not exposed to the elements. Your solar experts will have recommendations for the best way to store the batteries. They can answer how much space you will need, what type of access, storage conditions, and any other concerns.
