Home Battery Backup: Protection from Blackouts

Your utility provider prohibits your solar panels from continuing to feed power into the grid during a blackout. They require that your solar energy system automatically shut down causing your entire home to go dark. But a backup battery can allow your home to continue to receive power to your critical appliances such as your Wi-Fi, TV, refrigerator, lights, fans and important medical devices.

Stay Powered during Natural Disasters – California is a great place to live, but we all know too well that winter storms, wildfires and severe earthquakes can cause unexpected power outages at the most inconvenient times. Owning a home battery means that you have instantaneous and reliable backup power for your home when you need it the most.

“Utility Proof” Your Solar Energy System

California’s public utilities (SoCal Edison, PG&E and SDG&E) have recently made some unpopular changes that many homeowners are struggling to deal with. SolarMax Technology has developed a home battery system that will help ensure you are protected from the new and future utility changes.

Protection from Planned Blackouts during Wildfire Conditions – The public utilities have all announced and have already begun turning off the power to thousands of customers during peak wildfire conditions. Be prepared with a home battery to keep the lights, appliances and essentials on automatically when you receive a shut-off notice.

Protection from Time of Use Energy Rates – The public utilities have switched you to a new type of billing method called “Time of Use”. Instead of charging you more for the total quantity of energy used in a month, you are now charged higher rates at the times you typically use the most energy: in the early evening hours. A home battery will store the solar energy you produce during the day for you to use later in the evening to reduce your need to pull expensive power from the grid.
