Will solar panels provide electricity if there is a power outage?
Solar Panels will not work once your community has experienced a power outage. Almost all solar panels installed in homes are connected to the grid via a solar inverter, still receiving electricity from utility companies if the solar panel system does not make enough energy to meet demands such as on a rainy day or cloudy day when your solar panels do not receive sunlight. Solar panels are also connected to the grid for another reason, net metering, where you can sell the excess solar energy from your solar panels to the utility company.
A Solar Inverter is a meter that tracks and measures the amount of energy generated from your solar panels as well as used in your household. This is, however, a downside if there are any blackouts or power outages as we have stated above. The reason why your solar panels are also shut off during these scenarios is simple, it is for the safety of the repair workers. When they are trying to fix the electric lines, there must be no electricity running since you are still connected to the grid. Thus, bringing up our next topic.
How to Keep the Lights On With Solar Power During a Blackout
It is quite a common misconception that solar panel systems are completely independent and do not rely on the grid for their electricity. However, the only way you can truly enjoy renewable energy at home is by installing an off-grid system with solar panels and backup batteries. While they are quite expensive, most people who want to go off-grid end up making that choice because of the high electricity bills every month.
In places where there are no seasons and where the sun shines all year round, quite often there is no difficulty in generating enough energy with off-grid systems. But, there are areas in the country that have different seasons all year round like in the northern states where it snows during winters and it rains during summers.
These areas may face difficulties in generating enough energy to power up homes. However, there is still another way to keep your lights on even if you have rainy days or cloudy weather and that is sunlight backup batteries. Arc Energy Co. has a line of solar battery backups for use with its solar panel systems for both residential as well as commercial purposes.
What Is A Sunlight Backup Battery/Solar Battery Storage?
While not a new concept, the idea of using your own solar energy to power your home has grown in popularity over the years as more and more homes are built with solar panels on their roofs. Sunlight backup batteries are an added bonus that you can have installed with your solar panels to make sure you have enough power for those cloudy days or even in case of an emergency—like a hurricane or wildfire.
Sunlight backup batteries work on both systems that are connected and disconnected from the grid. So, whether you are consistently drawing from the main electrical system in your area or if you live off the grid entirely, sunlight backup battery options can make sure that your home has essential electricity even past peak hours. There are also steps you can take to make sure that your home is supplied with the power it needs in the long run. For example, if you’re using solar panels, it’s usually a good idea to combine them with an IQ8 Microinverter—a device that makes sure that your panels are working at peak performance even after the sun goes down.
What are the different types of sunlight backup battery options?
Solar backup batteries are the most efficient and cost-effective way to store renewable energy from solar panels. There are three different solar battery storage systems and these are DC-Coupled, AC-Coupled, or Hybrid Inverter Systems.
Some of the pros for choosing DC Coupled systems over AC Coupled systems is that they are more cost-efficient than AC Coupled systems. Also, they can be retrofitted into existing solar energy systems easily. These systems cannot draw energy from the grid to store in the battery but they are the easiest to retrofit into existing solar energy systems and frequently the most cost-effective. These systems have the battery placed to be linked directly to the panels before the electricity is converted from DC to AC by an inverter.
In a solar energy system layout, the AC-linked storage enables you to store energy from your system as well as take power from the grid when it is more affordable to do so throughout the day. Hybrid Inverters are a combination of both options and require the construction of your system because they combine the benefits of both options.
