As larger and more frequent storms become commonplace and with an aging electric grid infrastructure, more homeowners are exploring home power backup to keep their power on during outages. Home battery backup power solutions, especially solar plus battery backup, remain expensive but are becoming more affordable. There are many options to choose from when deciding on a battery or a generator. Request more information about a home power backup solution from Freedom Solar.
If you are considering a whole house battery backup power supply such as the Tesla Powerwall to provide solar backup power for your home, keep in mind that unlike your solar system, there is generally no acceptable financial payback for that investment. However, there are other reasons you may choose to install home battery backup power supply – for example, if you have critical medical or computer equipment running in your home, if you just want the security of knowing that you are not entirely reliant on the grid, or even to help drive the adoption curve to eventually make the technology more affordable for everyone.
Depending on your electricity needs and the reliable availability of grid power, you may find that the best home backup power solution for you is a combination of solar panels for home, batteries, and a generator.

There are two main types of home power backup: battery and generator. Batteries store electricity from solar panels from the grid. Generators use liquid fuel that is converted to electricity for use around your home. Each has different features and its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
