Solar Battery Backup Power

Has your existing generator worn you out? Are you tired of feeding it gasoline?

Interested in learning more? Contact Energy By Choice—our phones go directly to management!

  • Serve as a short-term emergency power source
  • Store excess solar energy to be used at peak times when solar might not keep up  (this may be an important feature when net metering changes)
  • Be added to existing solar electric system
  • Serve as a demand interruption tool for commercial businesses
  • Can be either Lithium-Ion (longer life) or traditional Lead Acid
  • Can be sized to be a substitute for a generator, however like a generator, batteries have limitations
  • If your winter bill averages $150 per month, you use approximately 25 kilowatt hours per day, so a 10 kwh battery will not last all day, certainly not if the solar panels are covered in snow and not likely if it’s cloudy outside.
  • Let an Energy By Choice solar consultant help you evaluate your battery backup needs.

Learn About Our Premium Solar Panels and Other Solar Options on Long Island

We are proud to offer design, installation, maintenance, and repair service for the following solar energy systems:

Solar Electric

Solar electric power is generated from sunlight using Photovoltaic (PV) Panels. PV Panels are typically mounted on roofs, and they convert the sun’s radiant energy into electricity. Through electronic inverters this energy is converted into 120 volts AC.

When you install solar panels on Long Island, solar-generated AC power is connected to the utility company’s wires, which supply power to your home or business. A solar panel installation provides you with free solar-generated electricity and can provide you with energy credit from your utility company. On days when your solar system generates more power than is typically needed, the surplus power feeds back to the utility company, who banks your account through net metering. You can use this banked kilowatt energy for electric usage at night or days with cloud cover!

Solar Hot Water

Solar domestic hot water (SDHW) systems collect and store the sun’s radiant energy to produce and store hot water for use in your kitchen, bath, and laundry. SDHW systems on Long Island use roof-mounted flat plate collector panels. Fluid in the collector, which is heated by the sun, is circulated into the house where it transfers its heat into the domestic water in an insulated tank.

If you choose to install a solar hot water system, it can increase your property value by significantly reducing your home’s energy expense!

Solar Pool Heat Systems

Did you know you can extend your swimming season from spring to fall by installing a solar pool heat system? A solar pool heater works by pumping filtered water from the pool through solar collector panels near the pool. The pool water is heated in the collector and returned to the pool. A solar pool heater can be the sole source of heat for your pool or used in combination with your existing pool heater to reduce fuel costs. Solar pool heaters:

  • Reduce or eliminate cost of heating a pool with gas propane, oil, or electric
  • Payback within two to three years of installation
  • Reduce pollution, smog, and greenhouse gases with clean solar energy

Solar Battery Storage

Have you ever considered installing a solar battery backup power system? With this home improvement, you’ll still have power when your primary source goes down because your solar power system will automatically switch on, serving as a short-term emergency power source.

The newest innovation in solar energy is the inclusion of battery storage. These systems can be added to your existing solar electric system and can store excess solar energy. In addition to during emergencies, you can use this stored energy at peak times when your primary system can’t keep up, which may be an important feature when net metering changes.
