Backup Power

solar battery

How a solar power battery backup works:

  1. Your solar panel system collects energy during the day, including when it is overcast.
  2. Energy is distributed throughout your property as needed.
  3. Any energy left unused after a complete cycle is syphoned into the backup battery.
  4. Whenever your home needs power but there is none available from the primary solar panel system – such as during the night or in extended power outages that impact the equipment – the battery backup will provide what it can instead.

Solar Battery Backup Has Your Back

In today’s modern age, a constant flow of electricity is pretty much a requirement, not a luxury. Most households have plenty of sensitive electronics that do not fare well during power surges sometimes caused by sporadic power outages. A backup solar power battery can help avoid this issue by maintaining a constant stream of energy to your devices and electronics. In other cases, an extended power outage will mean losing all the food left in fridges and freezers. Once again, having a solar power system in place can prevent this unfortunate consequence of a power loss. Restaurants and food-related industries in particular stand to save thousands and thousands of dollars in supplies with a battery backup system.

Perhaps the best part of all is that your battery backup is still providing the same, efficient green energy as your main solar power system. Not only does this let you find peace of mind in minimizing your impact on the environment, but it also means your utility bill will be shrunk even further, as you will be all the less likely to ever need electricity powered by the city’s or county’s grid.

Safety & Convenience All in One System

In the past, gas-powered generators were essentially the only option when it came to getting backup power in times of emergency. Solar power battery backups have completely changed that situation, and for the better.

Three key benefits of a solar battery backup compared to a gas-generator are:

  • Safer: A gas generator needs to be placed well away from the household and open windows since it emits dangerous fumes and chemicals as it runs. A solar battery backup has no such chemical hazard and can be placed against or inside your home for convenience.
  • Quieter: Hearing a gas generator running can be frustrating and distracting as the machine rattles and operates. The solar battery backup systems we use are as quiet as any other battery, creating only a hushed electric hum that some even find relaxing.
  • More reliable: As a machine with many moving parts, a gas generator is inherently unreliable and susceptible to failure. Not so with solar battery backups, which are comprised of the battery and cabling – simple!

Our Reviews

  • Thorough and supportive from start to finish

    Positive Energy Solar was responsive and helpful from the time we first called, through our decision-making process, and throughout the planning and installation of our system. Dave went over the options with us and answered all our questions, Zach worked with us to plan our system and guide us through the necessary steps with PNM and the recommended electrician, who was also very helpful and efficient, and the installation went smoothly and as planned. Dave also followed up with us to be sure the system was working as it should. We are very pleased with Positive Energy and would recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone considering a solar installation...

  • Couldn't be more pleased!

    Our experience with Positive Energy Solar couldn't have been easier or more professional. Our contact, Taylor, explained everything clearly, giving us various options to choose from, both in terms of how much solar we wanted to install and whether we wanted to pay up front or choose a pay-as-you-generate plan. Everyone we dealt with was professional and courteous and we got our panels installed in a timely manner. We are now enjoying our website monitor that tells us every day how much electricity we have generated. Between our solar array and our new electric car, we are thrilled to be "part of the solution."

  • The follow up once installed is beyond expectations. Their team is made up of solar experts who really care about their clients.

    Over the last 6 years, my wife and I have worked with Positive Energy Solar to install solar panels on 2 homes we've owned here in Santa Fe. From specifying to design and placement, their service and workmanship are excellent. After the installation they followed up to assure full output and taught me how to read the monitoring system. In both cases they specified the correct system through careful review of my electric bills, then did proper installation with very durable components and methods of anchoring, all properly wired to code. The follow up once installed is beyond expectations. Their team is made up of solar experts who really care about their clients. We are very pleased to be converting the New Mexico Sun into electric energy. We are very pleased with the entire program and results.
