Grid-Tied Solar with Battery Backup

Did you know that most grid-tied solar system do not work during power outages, even when the sun is shining? If a solar system doesn’t have batteries, it will typically not power your business during a blackout. Don’t be left in the dark when you need power the most!

Benefits of hybrid solar

  • Slash your electricity bills
  • Have backup energy during grid outages
  • Spend less than an off-grid system
  • Greater energy independence
  • Grid-tied systems with battery backup are the most flexible solar electrical systems. They work similarly to a regular grid-tied solar system except they allow you to store some of your power.

You can:

  • Choose to run your business entirely off your solar panels and batteries, drawing from the grid only as a last resort
  • Do the reverse and use your batteries only if the utility grid goes down, so you have power during blackouts
  • Use the utility grid to charge batteries when there is no sun for days
