Battery Backup Systems
Battery backup systems linked to solar systems are becoming a popular way to save on electricity bills and gain more energy independence.
A battery backup system allows you to store energy while the sun is shining, with the ability to store surplus power generated by the solar system for use at night or on cloudy days. You also have stored power to use if the grid goes down, or at any other time you need it.
Often the power produced by a solar power system exceeds the power being used during sunny times, it may be that you are out during the day or there is simply less demand for power. That excess power can be exported to the electricity grid, earning you a credit on your power bill. However, in most cases, the amount paid for electricity exported to the grid is below the price you pay when you buy electricity. A battery backup system stores the power so that you can access it later without having to draw power from the grid.
Save on your electricity bills with a high quality Solar Panel system and Battery Backup!
The benefits of a battery backup system, also known as a hybrid solar power system, include:
Use solar energy to provide free day time power, charge batteries, and to feed excess power back into the grid.
Avoid peak usage bills by reducing peak period loads by using stored power.
Have reliable, continuous power, even when the grid goes down.

By adding a battery backup system your house will be able to receive power from three sources – the solar system when it is producing enough power, the battery bank, and the electricity grid.
An Australian requirement on all grid-connected solar systems is that they shut down if they detect failure of the grid. This is a safety requirement to protect any workers making repairs to the wires outside your home.
A properly designed Cool or Cosy hybrid solar system safely disconnects your house from the grid in the event of a power outage; your system will then switch over the power stored in the battery system providing you continuous power to your essential circuits, even in times of blackout.
So, is a battery backup system worth the extra cost?
A typical, working household would use more electricity in the evenings, and less during weekdays. In this situation, a well designed hybrid system may pay back faster than a standard grid connect system, despite the extra expense, especially if it is financed cheaply through Cool or Cosy’s in house finance.
