Grid Tie Solar Systems With Battery Backup Information Guide
A grid tie solar system with battery backup is a powerful and cost-effective investment for your home, saving your thousands of dollars in energy costs. Your system will include several critical components, including:
High-Efficiency Solar Panels
Silicon Solar uses the most advanced and high-efficiency solar panels for our grid tie solar systems. Designed and engineered to give you more power and a lower-cost, each solar panel used in our grid tie kits is approved and recommended for use all across the US and around the world.
The charge controller is a critical component of any solar power system with a battery backup. Overcharging is a major killer of batteries and a charge controller will monitor the charge level of your batteries and shut down charging to avoid damage once your batteries are full.
The battery backup is used in these grid tie solar systems to provide a stable source of emergency power for your home's critical appliances during cloudy weather even when the power grid has gone down. This is great in areas that are prone to bad weather and/or blackouts / brownouts.
Solar panels and batteries generate and store power in DC (direct current), however nearly all home appliances and electronics use AC (alternating current) power that comes from the electric grid. A DC-AC inverter will transform the DC power from your solar power system into AC power that is useable right through your home's power outlets. A good, high-efficiency DC-AC inverter can make or break the performance and cost-effectiveness of a grid tie solar system.
Other Important Components
- Solar panel mounting hardware
- Pre-cut wiring runs
- Solar wiring combiner box
- Battery storage box
- On-location & remote (online) monitoring system
- Lightning arrestors, breakers and other electrical components
When the power goes out, don't be the house without any power. Utilize our solar grid tie systems which allow your home to operate when the utility power is off line. Many of our customers have been pleased from California, New Mexico, Nevada, Florida, Texas and several other locations.
