Do you dream of ensuring that no power outage will ever affect you? If so, you should look into installing a solar battery backup system as this allows you to store any excess power that comes from a solar system. 

Even when the sun has set, the stored energy in the battery will allow you to keep your home powered. A solar battery backup will allow you to live without any reliance on the power grid.

Solar panels generate a lot of electricity, but you probably do not need it all right away. You can harness the power generated by the sun in storage for future use. Otherwise, the excess power will simply return to the grid and the utility company. 

When you come prepared with a solar battery, you at least have the option of connecting to the grid and the battery or only the latter.

We highly recommend having a solar energy backup when you live off the grid. This is a reliable and sustainable way of powering your home even when you reside somewhere remote and isolated.

There are the four solar system battery types with specific characteristics suitable for a variety of applications:

Lead Acid Battery

This is the traditional and most common type of battery for solar systems. It is affordable and reliable, which is why it is so popular. However, keep in mind that it will require frequent checks and more maintenance.

Nickel Cadmium Battery

If you plan to have a solar system battery for a commercial building or unit, this is the best option. It is a very simple system that is capable of withstanding extreme temperatures at the same time.

Flow Battery

Do you need to store a lot of excess energy? If this is the case, this is the best option for you thanks to its massive storage. It is still a fairly new technology. We recommend this type if the backup system will be used for solar farms and commercial properties.

Lithium-Ion Battery

Last but not the least, we have this increasingly popular choice. It is a great backup choice because it lasts long but does not require much in the way of maintenance. Even though it is quite costly, the price has been going down steadily and rapidly.
