How Does A Generac Solar Battery Backup Work?

What It Does

Generac battery backup systems store unused excess electricity from your solar panels for later use. You could access it during an outage or at night when your solar panels aren’t producing electricity.

How It Works

Solar panels can only actively generate electricity while the sun is out. The grid can fill the gaps overnight or when solar panels aren’t getting adequate sunlight. You lose that grid connection during power outages, though. By storing excess energy in your battery, portions of your home can be powered independent of the grid.

What It Means For You

POWERHOME SOLAR recommends bundling your solar panel system with a Generac battery backup to get the most out of your investment. Watch the video to see how it works.

Customize Your Generac Battery Backup 

Every home has different energy needs for their battery backup. To meet this, Generac has four power modes, each designed for different scenarios. Here’s how to customize your battery backup. 

Clean Backup Mode

Clean Backup Mode sends all of the energy created by your solar panels directly to your backup battery. This keeps the battery at 100% capacity so that in case of an outage, you have as much energy as possible to power your home.

Self-Supply Mode

With this mode, you can store excess energy in your battery to use at a later time. When your battery reaches 100%, it sends excess energy back to the grid. 

Priority Backup Mode

This is similar to Clean Backup Mode, except you also can use power from the grid to bring your battery to full capacity.

Grid Mode

Grid mode is meant for when you don’t have a battery attached to your solar system. When you add one, that’s where the three other modes come in handy.

Where Will My Generac Battery Backup System Live?

Your Generac backup battery will be set up outside your residence. You could place it against a garage wall or, depending on local building codes and your home’s architecture, on the side of your home. The battery is protected by a cover shield, so it should withstand the Nashville weather!
