Looking for a backup source of power for your grid-tied solar energy system? Consider purchasing a solar home generator. Similar to solar battery backups, a generator can provide a source of electricity during outages or when the grid goes down.
Why Purchase a Solar Home Generator?
Even if you have a solar energy system, if you’re tied to the grid, you can still experience outages during emergencies like hurricanes. Due to safety mechanisms, your home’s solar energy supply system will be disabled during outages.
Solar home generators aren’t the most powerful source of energy, but they can keep your lights and small appliances running, and keep your phones and laptops charged. Even when the grid is down, you can keep basic functions running.
Advantages of Solar Home Generator
Why choose a solar home generator over a traditional gas generator? Solar home generators are quiet and unobtrusive, allowing you to run them indoors. Unlike diesel or natural gas-fueled generators, solar home generators don’t make a lot of noise or emit unpleasant fumes.
Your solar home generator can be recharged via battery or, of course, by the sun or your fuel cell. During emergencies, when gas may be in short supply and the grid is down, a solar or fuel cell generator can literally power you through.
