How Does A Generac Solar Battery Backup Work?
What It Does
Generac battery backup systems store the excess energy produced by your solar panels for later use, in case of a power outage, or at night when solar energy production is low.
How It Works
Solar panels require sunlight to generate power for your home. During the night or on cloudy days, your home will use electricity from the grid to meet its needs. However, you lose that grid connection during 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.
Customize Your Generac Battery Backup
Every home has unique battery backup needs. That’s why Generac offers four power modes that support different scenarios. Learn how you can customize your battery backup power below.
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.
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 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.
