Grid Tied with Battery Backup

  • Battery backup grid-tied systems are a hybrid of the two popular configurations.
  • Typically the battery backup powers a sub-panel or even just a few plug-ins within the house, which is used to power critical loads during a grid outage.
  • Batteries can be charge from solar, and in some configurations are also charged from the grid when available.
  • This configuration often allows smaller battery banks, as home owners are often trying to power critical loads only, and not all day-to-day electrical loads.
  • Grid-tied systems can be designed with the option of becoming battery backed up at a future time.
  • Numerous configuration and sizing options are possible.  Please contact us for consultation.
