How does this work?
Generac’s battery storage system matches up well with a solar array to provide backup power and hydro savings. (For reference, visit: https://www.generac.com/for-homeowners/clean-energy/clean-energy)
The solar power generated is sent through controllers that power up electrical loads in your home or place of business. Any extra power generated is charged in batteries for later use.
Do you need solar panels for this to work?
No, batteries installed in your home can be left charged waiting for a power outage. Or, batteries can be charged at “off peak” rates and discharged at “on peak” rates, saving you money on your hydro bills.
Can I monitor the status of the system?
Yes, power monitoring systems can be installed. The monitoring is internet based and is viewed on your smartphone or tablet.
