GRID - TIED SOLAR POWER SYSTEMS WITH BATTERY BACKUP

All Things Change....Including Motivations for Using Solar Power

There are some people who get into solar power because it is a good thing to do. It's good for the planet. The use of renewable energy sources reduces our dependence on expensive, polluting fossil fuels and will leave our grandchildren's children a healthier environment.

But most of us jump in for other reasons. An offgrid solar electric system can make it possible to build a house on affordable, undeveloped land without the astronomical cost of pulling in utility power. Urbanites already on utility power like adding gridtie solar because it lowers their electrical bill.

And then there are the pioneer spirited Americans who mainly want independence. They want independence from bank mortgages and from profit-making utility companies. They want independence from a grid-connected, debt-ridden culture that uses more than it needs and leaves large segments of the population in the dark.

But for all of us, once we live with solar power, whatever our initial motivations, we begin to see the beauty of the system. Solar panels, because they have no moving parts, rarely fail. They keep on producing, without polluting, for up to 40 years! The sun shines; you have free power. Our children grow up having an experiential understanding of power production and consumption.

We want more. We begin to want the rest of the package: independence and the satisfaction of knowing that when the grid goes down our homes are safely powered. This is why we hear back from our gridtie customers, asking about battery backup options and the potential for converting their gridtie systems to offgrid.


Grid tied Solar Power Users are Learning

Although there is an initial cost benefit with the lowering of the electrical bill, in the long run, that bill is never going to go away. And when sun goes away; you have to pay for grid power or use stored power.

Two factors are leading gridtie solar power users to search for ways to be independent of the grid:

  1. When the grid goes down, so does the gridtied solar power system. All grid tied systems will shut off during a blackout because these systems are required by law to feature an automatic shut-off mechanism. These requirements are in place to protect utility workers working on a local line during a blackout. This is known as an Anti-Islanding requirement.
  2. No matter how much electricity you produce and how well you live within your gridtied solar power system's capacity, the electric bill never goes to zero! The add-on's keep adding up.

2.24 kW Grid‑Tied Battery Backup Solar System with Magnum Power Center and 8x Astronergy 280 Panels

Solar is more affordable than ever.  $ 14,914.56
Claim the 30% Federal Tax Credit.
Finance this system from $181/month*
*Based on 5.75% APR over 7 years
Description
Enjoy Uninterrupted Power with Solar plus Storage
This system combines the benefits of a grid-tied PV system with the independence and peace-of-mind found living off-grid. Magnum Energy’s MicroGT 500 Microinverters are paired with a powerful Magnum Energy MS4448PAE battery backup inverter. During normal operation the microinverters send excess power into the grid to reduce your energy demand. In the event of a power outage the backup inverter turns on automatically to power critical appliances such as your lights, fridge, well pump, cell phone and computer. This design combines the best of both worlds, reducing your power bill and providing backup power in an emergency.
Pre-wired for Easy Installation
This package includes a 4 Star Solar power center which has been pre-wired and tested with all necessary components and safety disconnects including a remote control, battery monitor, surge suppressors, AC & DC breakers and labeled bus bars. We’ve also included a set of high quality, maintenance-free AGM batteries with UL listed battery interconnects. The combination of MicroGT 500 microinverters, a pre-wired power center and our detailed electrical diagram make installation as simple and painless as possible.
