The customer decided to invest in a grid-tied battery backup solar energy system to lower the cost of their bills, but also to power emergency loads during times of grid outage, particularly after hurricanes. Their 12kW system will offset approximately 40% of their energy use, and their battery backup bank will run the customer’s lights, air conditioning, refrigerator, and computers when the grid is down.
