Why Solar Batteries Are Rising in Popularity

The entire realm of solar panels and solar power has gained major popularity across the last half-decade or so, and one particular part of this industry that's seen especially large boosts is that of solar battery backups. These products are increasing in popularity even faster than solar panels themselves in many places, and there are several reasons why this is the case.

At Intermountain Wind & Solar, we're happy to offer a wide range of commercial and residential solar power services for clients in Salt Lake City, Boise and other areas of Utah and Idaho - including battery backups to help store and utilize your power in the most effective ways possible. Here are some basics on what battery backups do, plus the many reasons why they're skyrocketing in popularity today - and why you should be strongly considering one if you have a solar power system or are looking into one.

What Solar Battery Backups Do

For those just learning about solar battery backups, the most basic way to frame these devices is that they are essentially extra power storage for your home or commercial space. This works in a twofold fashion - by storing excess energy built up by your solar system as well as providing extra juice and energy when there's a lull in natural energy sources like sunlight.

And for those who own them, this offers several major benefits. For one, it ensures that your solar system isn't running near its capacity, allowing you to always get the most out of your energy output. Additionally, with extra power storage available at all times, you're able to take full advantage of low-cost and even free energy during peak production hours - and then use that stored power when there's a lull in natural energy sources.

The Benefits of Solar Battery Backups

Besides providing extra electricity storage and usage, solar battery backups also offer several other benefits that make them an attractive option for many people. For one, they can offer a higher resale value to your home - especially if you're looking to move in the near future- as potential buyers are likely to see the extra energy storage and reduced cost of energy as major pluses.

They also offer a great source of emergency backup power, especially in cases where there is an extended electricity outage due to bad weather or other issues - allowing you to still have access to power when necessary. And, because they usually take up less space than standard solar panels, they are often a great choice for those with limited outdoor space available or who prefer to keep the aesthetics of their property intact.

Overall, these are just some of the major benefits that solar battery backups can offer - and why many people are turning to them as an increasingly attractive option when it comes to home energy production and storage. However, a few particular industries and upgrades to modern society have had a particularly large impact here, and we'll go over those in our subsequent sections.

Electric Vehicle Charging

One of the single largest industries helping to boost the popularity of solar battery backups is that of electric vehicles, or EVs. As more and more people begin transitioning over to these cars for everyday use, demand for charging sources has increased dramatically - and this is especially true when it comes to those powered by renewable energy sources like solar.

With a solar battery backup fitted in your home, you can easily set up an EV charger and offer yourself a source of clean energy to power your car - as well as providing a tangible incentive for potential buyers down the line.

Smart Home Automation & Other Technologies

Along with electric vehicles, another large area that solar battery backups are becoming increasingly popular in is that of smart home automation systems. These connected systems are becoming more and more popular, especially among tech-savvy households - and with a solar battery backup installed, you can ensure that your devices always have access to power when needed - as well as helping to reduce costs for powering them in the first place.

Plus, many of these smart home automation systems can be integrated with other systems in your home - from lighting, to climate control and more. This means that you can get the most out of both your solar system and battery backup all at once - resulting in a particularly efficient setup for your household.

General Grid Uncertainty

In more and more places, the grid is becoming increasingly uncertain. This means that electricity outages can become more and more common - leading to higher costs and frustration for homeowners. However, with a solar battery backup in place, you'll be able to keep your electrical systems running during these times with little to no interruption - allowing you to save money on energy costs as well as providing peace of mind that your home will remain powered no matter what.

It's clear to see why battery backups are becoming increasingly popular in many different areas - from EV charging and smart home automation systems, to general grid uncertainty. Not only can they offer a great source of emergency backup power for when you need it, but can also reduce costs and provide added value to your home all at once. Ultimately, it's clear why many people are turning to solar battery backups as an attractive option for their energy production and storage needs - and why this industry is growing so rapidly.

At Intermountain Wind & Solar, we specialize in providing residential solar battery backups to meet your needs - and can help you get the most out of your system to maximize value for your home.
