Blackout has likely prompted many households to consider installing solar and/or a battery system. However, it is important to note that during a blackout, households with solar panels installed will have no power, as regulations demand that grid-connected solar power systems be prevented from exporting solar electricity during a blackout to ensure the safety of those working on repairing damage to mains electricity infrastructure and to prevent further damage to already compromised infrastructure. This behavior is built into the solar inverter and is called "anti-islanding protection."
To achieve blackout insurance, specialized or additional equipment needs to be installed. For blackout protection, a hybrid system that isolates the installation from the main grid is required. This is a feature that enables backup power potential.
When it comes to batteries, there are several potential options available at EnGoPlanet like
Besides the fact that they present powerful options, batteries also provide independence.
Just some of the benefits include:
Provides backup power during grid outages
Increases energy independence and reduces reliance on fossil fuels
Increases the effectiveness of solar panels by storing excess energy
Allows for the use of solar energy at night or during cloudy periods
Can be used to power homes, businesses, and vehicles
Can help to stabilize the grid and reduce peak energy demand
Can reduce energy costs by storing energy during off-peak hours and using it during peak hours
Can be used in remote and off-grid locations
Can be used to power emergency systems and critical infrastructure
Reduces carbon footprint and helps to combat climate change
High-quality and long-lasting performance
