How Does A Generac Solar Battery Backup Work?

What It Does

Generac battery backup systems provide storage space for unused excess power generated by solar panels for later use, such as during an outage or overnight.

How It Works

Solar panels only provide power to your home when the sun is out. At night or when solar panels don’t get enough sunlight, the grid can fill the gaps. During a power outage, however, you don’t have that grid connection to rely on. By storing excess solar energy inside your battery, you can power portions of your home independent of the grid through your battery backup.

What It Means For You

POWERHOME SOLAR recommends bundling a Generac battery backup with your solar panel system to get the most return on your investment. Watch the video to see how it works.

Customize Your Generac Battery Backup 

Just as every home is different, so are your battery backup preferences. Generac provides four power modes to accommodate different scenarios. Keep reading to learn how you can customize your battery backup power.

Clean Backup Mode

Clean Backup Mode sends all of the energy created by your solar panels directly to your backup battery. This keeps the battery at 100% capacity so that in case of an outage, you have as much energy as possible to power your home.

Self-Supply Mode

With this mode, you can store excess energy in your battery to use at a later time. When your battery reaches 100%, it sends excess energy back to the grid. 

Priority Backup Mode

This is similar to Clean Backup Mode, except you also can use power from the grid to bring your battery to full capacity.

Grid Mode

Grid mode is meant for when you don’t have a battery attached to your solar system. When you add one, that’s where the three other modes come in handy.

Where Will My Generac Battery Backup System Live?

Your Generac backup battery system is set up outside of your home. For instance, it could be placed against a garage wall or mounted on the outside of your home, depending on local building codes and your specific architecture. Additionally, the battery is protected by a cover shield, so it will be able to withstand Chicago weather!
