Power / Back Up

Solar battery backup systems are utility interactive and designed to operate with a solar array. During the day, the solar array delivers utility grade electricity to dedicated loads. Extra power not consumed will feed back into the grid and lower your electric bill. At night, utility power keeps the batteries charged and supplies electricity to dedicated loads. Solar battery backup systems provide power when utility power is unavailable.

All components are housed in a lockable, vented, indoor enclosure. Shown with top removed.

During power outages, the solar system provides power for daytime loads and battery charging for nighttime loads. The battery backup provides security and safety for your family or business during periods of extended power emergencies. On-site installation can be completed within a few days.

All electrical components are listed for safety to UL specifications. The Battery Backup system is reliable and safe operation compliant to the NEC.

The Battery Backup System and modules are all high quality components that will provide you with reliable power. Depending on the system selected, the sealed AGM batteries provide 305 to 610 amp hours of backup power.

Maintenance-free batteries are designed to last 10+ years. The Grid-Tie Systems with Battery Backup offer high quality system components to provide reliable power. Each system includes a sealed 3000W or vented 3600W pure sine wave inverter with five-stage battery charger, manual AC bypass switch, M60 charge controller, Mate digital system control and display, GFI outlet, PV-GFP circuit breaker, AC/DC breakers and sealed AGM deep-cycle batteries.

Backup Power In A Box

Battery backup systems include all the components necessary for battery backup power in one self-contained unit
for indoor installation. The enclosures are lockable for security and offer an optional breaker access door. All electrical
components are listed for safety to UL specifications. No longer will you hear "Honey! The power is out!"

The following chart will give you an idea of what appliances can be operated from the battery backup.
NOTE: When picking your emergency load for when you are on battery backup, consider only those items that you wish to use in an emergency situation. The more you put on your emergency load the less hours you will have to run your emergency load. So choose wisely. The Energy Outlet can advise you on your power needs.
