How Does A Generac Solar Battery Backup Work?

What It Does

Generac battery backup systems store any excess power from solar panels for later access when it’s needed, such as during a power outage, at night or when solar panels aren’t generating electricity.

How It Works

Solar panels can only produce power and thus provide electricity to your home while the sun is out. At night or when your solar panels aren’t receiving enough sunlight, the grid can fill those gaps — except in the event of a power outage. By storing excess solar energy inside your battery, you can power portions of your home independent of the grid through your battery backup.

What It Means For You

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

Customize Your Generac Battery Backup 

Just like every home is different, so are your unique battery backup needs. To accommodate this, Generac has four power modes, each designed for different scenarios. Keep reading to find out how to customize your battery backup power. 

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 battery backup system will be placed outside of your living area. This could be against a wall in your garage or on the side of your home, depending on your home’s layout and local building codes. The battery is protected by a cover shield so it can withstand Knoxville’s weather.
