Grid-tied solar electric systems are a great way to save money using free power from the sun. However, most grid-tied solar arrays are designed to shut down when they lose grid connection. When you pair solar electricity with battery storage, you can supply critical loads to your home, or even function independently from the grid, in the event of an outage.
The Benefits of Battery
Battery storage has become increasingly popular due to the promise of energy self-sufficiency and back-up power in the event of power outages. The number of households and businesses opting to install batteries has increased in the last few years.
With hurricane season fastly approaching, now is the time to back up your home with a battery system, that can be a great alternative to a generator. Keeping you connected throughout and the critical loads on throughout the season.
Homeowners become interested in lithium-ion battery backup for a variety of reasons:
Protection for homes that experience frequent power outages: from blazing hot summers that increase grid demand, to extreme storms – outages are becoming increasingly common.
Self-sufficiency: power your home with the solar power you generate, during the day and at night
Increased use of your solar resource: powering your home with 100% renewable energy – day and night.

What is the Tesla Powerwall?
Tesla is well known for making quality batteries. Tesla Powerwall and Backup Gateway interdependence make it the safest energy battery system on the market. The Backup Gateway controls the flow of electricity from the grid, solar or other energy sources to loads in your home and to the Powerwall. Powerwall is an inverter, a battery, and a temperature control unit, all in one. It is designed to be resistant to internal fire exposure, mechanical stresses, and electrical abuse. It is a safe touch system as no live terminals accessible to you or your family. Unlike other battery systems, the terminals are isolated and there is zero voltage when the system is turned off. Powerwall is the only double enclosure battery system for a home.
