How does battery storage work as back up power?

Solar battery energy storage systems have the ability to provide backup power to your business. Much like diesel standby generators, they store power to release during periods of power outage and capture any excess energy generation, which gives you peace of mind that your site will continue to operate in the event of power supply disruption.

In certain cases, your business may be able to have access to an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS). This eliminates the short period of downtime that occurs when switching over to your backup solar PV battery storage in a conventional system – see the section on UPS below for more information.
