Most people think having a solar panel system (including a battery) will make you completely independent of the grid. But having a battery and hybrid solar panels connected to the grid is actually the most beneficial option for those going solar.
Because solar panels require sunlight to generate electricity, the simple answer is no, they don’t work at night. Most of the confusion about solar panels working at night is related to solar storage and using a backup power supply during the night.
We’ll go over how solar panels are still worth the investment through net metering and backup energy
Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming increasingly common as the world learns more about climate change and renewable energy. And with EVs comes the need to charge them. Here’s what we at Freedom Solar have to say on the topic of solar-powered EV charging stations.What Is an EV Station?

Solar panel manufacturers make their systems as tough as possible because they’re constantly exposed to the elements. Solar panels are durable enough to withstand a hurricane, among other rough conditions.
The good news is that you generally don’t have to worry about hurricane winds, rain or hail ruining or damaging your solar panels because they’re built to be resilient.
Solar power use is on the rise in the U.S.
According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), people installed a new solar energy system every 75 seconds in 2020. Currently, 18.6 million homes use solar power — about 3% of the country’s total energy usage.
That’s a huge step up from previous years. If this pace continues,
Texans have always taken great pride in their strength and independence, and the Lone Star State is no stranger to tapping into those trademark qualities to get past all sorts of crises. Many such difficult situations stem from natural disasters — usually staggering summer heat or a devastating hurricane. But recently, millions of Texans were without power for prolonged
