and Batteries provide peak shaving ability as well as peace of mind
knowing your family or business is protected from power interruptions.
you just can't run much without power. If you're worried about unreliable
power delivery or your plan is to reduce your monthly bill by eliminating
power use during the expensive peak hours, you should consider investing
in our Backup / Peak Shaving System.
a backup system work?
When utility power is on, your inverter/charger automatically keeps
your batteries fully charged and ready to go. When power fails,
your inverter unit instantly switches from charger to inverter to
provide silent electricity to essential loads such as refrigerators,
computers, lights, and phone systems.
is the transfer from grid to battery?
Sinewave inverters are a great choice for backup power. The speed
of the internal transfer from charger to inverter is so fast that
most computers will stay running during the changeover.
using backup is there a noticeable difference in power?
The sine wave output of SW-series inverters ensures that when you
switch power source from grid to battery, you will notice no differences
from public power.
add solar modules to my backup system?
You can add solar modules or any other other renewable charging
source to your system and actually send excess power back to your
utility company (where permitted).
is "Peak Shaving"?
Peak shaving is a backup system which will take your home/business
off the grid every day during peak hours. It will run your entire
load including the air conditioner. With peak rates in effect, your
backup/peak shaving system can actually pay for itself.
Our backup system is simple and reliable and consists of just two
main components: the Battery Bank and the Inverter(s). You will
be charging your battery bank during the night (off peak) and you
will be running your entire home/business during the daytime (on
peak) with electricity stored in your battery bank. You will never
need to use the expensive "peak rate" electricity.
will it last?
The batteries included in your backup system should last 25 years
and the solid state inverters, indefinitely.
