Solar power allows you to reduce your reliance on BC Hydro for power from the grid. The solar panels provide power throughout the day and are grid tied to BC Hydro. But if the power goes out during one of the Lower Mainland winter storms or during an earthquake, even a house with solar panels will be unable to run household appliances and heat the home. If the power is out for more than a few hours in the winter, that can make your household uncomfortable and you could also lose food in your fridge and freezer, and have flooding in a crawlspace or basement due to a sump pump not running.
To ensure none of that become reality, solar panel customers can couple their solar power systems with a battery backup system. This creates the ultimate home solar panel system.
In the event of a power outage, the battery backup system will ensure that the important appliances in your home continue to work.
Novo Solar Solutions recently installed a residential solar panels system at a BC home as backup in the event of a power outage. The solar panel system will run the in-floor heating circulation pump, fridge, freezer and emergency lighting for 48 hours, giving the homeowners piece of mind throughout the coming winter and for years to come.
