Battery Storage: How Does It Work?

Solar powered energy is renowned for being a reliable, clean method of producing energy. Not only does it contribute to saving the environment, it can also save you money and increase your home value – which make them really attractive additions to a home.


However, how reliable are they? What happens when the grid is out? Well, battery storage is an emerging technology that enables solar panels to store excess energy. The idea is that you have a store of energy that your home can use, should something happen to your grid. Thereby making it more reliable and effective than other energy.


What Is A Battery Backup?

Battery Backup allows homes to use power, even when the grid is down and operates automatically when a power loss occurs.


Making Backup Power Accessible

Many people have reservations about solar energy and don’t view it as reliable. Of course, it is dependent on certain elements such as wind and sunlight in order to operate and generate energy effectively. It’s understandable that people have concerns as being able to power your home is really important. It’s not good enough to have an unreliable power source. However, with the emergence of battery storage, solar power is becoming increasingly reliable and making it a great choice for homeowners.


The reliability is making solar panels more and more popular with consumers. Data from SEIA shows that there is now more than 58 GW of solar capacity installed in the U.S. – enough to power over 11 million homes. With new devices such as battery storage coming to market, there’s no better time to invest in solar panels to power your home.
