How Solar Power and Batteries Work Together
When we combine solar panels with battery storage this is typically called a Hybrid System. The term Hybrid in this context means that the system can work when the grid is down by both using power from the battery and keep the solar panels operating to provide power to the home. They do this by isolating the solar array from the grid by an Automatic Transfer Switch and then supplying a grid quality signal to the panels to keep them operating. If emergency power is important to you then you should consider purchasing solar with a battery. Batteries can also help you save more power and lower your purchase of grid power from the utility company.
