It’s no secret that Escondido residents have some of the best weather in the nation. With 266 sunny days on average each year, an investment in solar is a great idea. How can you improve on that investment, you ask? With a battery backup system!
What can a battery backup system do for me?
For those of us in California, we know that more rolling blackouts are in our future. With the increased fire danger, power companies have begun working to prevent devastating fires by turning off our power during high wind incidences. While we know that this is a necessary step to avoid catastrophic loss, it can hamper our home life. But those of us with solar in Escondido will be able to provide power to our homes during those blackouts.
How Battery Storage Works
Well, that’s where a battery backup system is an excellent investment. If you have solar or are considering solar for your Escondido home, batteries are a great way to increase the availability of solar power for your home.
Here is how it works
- During the day, your solar panels generate power, usually over what you use.
- Without a battery backup, this excess power returns to the grid where you earn credits so that when your panels cannot keep up with your usage, you can use those credits for power from the electric company.
- If you have batteries attached to your solar panels, that excess solar power charges your batteries. Once your batteries are completely charged, any excess power generated goes to the grid, and you earn credits.
At night, when your panels do not provide power, your batteries release that saved energy for your use through an installed inverter. This process prevents you from having to rely on PG&E for any power. This power is available during inclement weather or blackouts, too. Imagine the peace of mind those batteries can give your family, especially at night!
