Why Should I Back Up My Home or Business?

Backup batteries are critical for ensuring power and security in the event of a power outage for both homes and small businesses. They provide peace of mind that security systems, devices, and appliances will continue to function, and allow for important tasks such as running a business or working remotely to continue without interruption. In today’s connected world, having a dependable backup power source is more important than ever, and investing in a quality backup battery system can help protect property and assets and keep home or business running smoothly.

There are many more reasons to back up your home or business. Don’t wait until the lights are out, plan now!

Homes

Backup batteries are important for homeowners as they allow them to stay connected and continue family activities during power outages. Power outages can lead to loss of internet access and access to appliances. A backup battery system ensures daily activities and connection to the world can continue even during power outages.

Small Businesses

Backup batteries are essential for small businesses to keep point of sale devices, business devices, and production lines running during power outages to avoid lost productivity, lost sales, and lost production. A backup battery system also ensures continuity of customer service by maintaining essential systems and devices during power outages, and protect important data and equipment.

Five Steps to Plan for Battery Backup & Solar

For more details –  read this article or follow the links in the steps below.

Step 1 – ID Essential Appliances

What devices and appliances do you consider “essential”?

Determine how much power is needed to keep them running.

This is described as your “essential load” and is measured in kilowatts (kW).

Step 2 – Choose Inverter

Determine the size of the inverter that will support the “essential load” you have just calculated.

The inverter must comfortably support the “essential load”. This is measured in kilowatts (kW).

Step 3 – Time Off-Grid

To determine battery capacity, decide how long you want to run on battery power.

As outages have become longer and more frequent, a good place to start may be 4 hours.

Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt hours (kWh). Calculate this by multiplying your essential load (kW) by the number of hours (h) you may be without power, and doubling that number.

Step 4 – Add Solar

The solar power required to support your essential load and charge your batteries once a day.

Add the essential load that you want to support during the day to the capacity of your batteries. This is the total power that your solar panels need to deliver during daylight.

Step 5 – Additional Costs

Now you have an overview of the system you are considering. Additional costs will be for the wiring, connections, protections and labour to install the system.

Always insist on a Certicate of Compliance (CoC) from your installer.
