Energy Storage for Solar

Battery backup storage can be an added benefit to a solar energy system. 

Here in the Carolinas, we are no stranger to power outages. Many of our solar customers look into renewable energy because they want alternative electricity options when their lights go out.

Understanding Battery Backup

In order to receive the benefits of net metering in our area, a solar system is connected to your home and the utility grid. Because of this, it will automatically shut off during a power outage along with the electricity in your home for safety purposes. Once power is restored, the panels will begin producing again. 

Battery backup allows your solar system to keep your electricity continuously running, even during outages. Some people also consider it as an alternative to net metering, becoming completely independent of the grid. At Southern Current, we believe in empowering you through education to help you understand the advantages and current options for battery backup.
