Keeping up with what could happen
Uncertainty is common right now, especially with these unprecedented times.
Yet, there are still things to be certain about, such as the power that powers your home. More and more consumers are transitioning to solar power as their source of energy. While many consumers stay tied to the utility grid, others are favoring off-grid solar systems.
Off-grid solar systems mean you will no longer be tied to your utility grid, instead, you rely on your solar system with battery to keep you powered.
The certainty of knowing you will have power regardless of an outage is a good feeling. Plus, the savings that come from off-grid solar systems are a good investment.
The focus of going off-grid right now is the uncertainty that comes from COVID-19 and what might occur in our cities. Many consumers are ordered to stay at home and practice social distancing. While essential businesses stay open, such as solar installers, other businesses are now temporarily closed.
Does this mean the city is using more or less power?
Last month Greentech Media wrote Keeping the Lights On: US Utility Sector Braces for Coronavirus Impact, which stated, “U.S. power utilities and generators face an array of risks in the weeks ahead, from energy “demand destruction” as economies slow to tightening debt conditions that could ripple through the commodity markets.”
What happens if your utility can’t keep the lights on? You will be left in the dark unless you have a solar system with battery.
A solar system with battery means having a battery that is charged by solar power to store energy produced during the day for later use.
You can be certain that solar energy will get you feeling secure about your power.
