Home battery backup systems
Power outages are troublesome at best and dangerous in the worst case. Whether it’s hours, days, or weeks, unexpected interruptions can disrupt your life. The SunStor Solar home battery backup system integrates a solar system with a home circuit to power it when needed and store it when it’s not needed. With a smart, easy-to-use product at a low cost, you can extend your life in the event of an interruption with a simple switch.
Integrate into your home
Our home energy storage system integrates directly with the electrical panel to support four primary circuits in the home. Our electrician easily installs the Home Integration Kit (HIK) in less than an hour.
Connect the Solar system to the Home Integration Kit. Whenever the power is turned off, move the HIK switch to change the selected circuit from the SunStor battery backup system’s main power supply
If you have solar panels installed, you may have heard of solar backup solutions. The installation of these systems is very beneficial for both energy independence and savings. The main reasons for recommending the installation of a solar storage battery system are as follows.
- Utilities may have a net billing rate or a TOU. Backup systems can help reduce these rates.
- Consume more independently generated solar energy to maximize energy independence.
- Back up essential items (refrigerators, lights, septic pumps/wells, etc.) or power the entire house in case of a power outage. You don’t have to worry about not turning on the lights or food thawing with battery backup systems.
- Use some utilities (Wake EMC, PEMC, etc.) to maximize the return on your solar investment. When the system is backed up, returns are maximized and energy-independent.
- When connected to a PV system, the backup battery and storage system’s cost is subject to a 26% federal tax credit.
The SunStor Solar provides you best home battery backup estimates. It will assist you in every step of the process of choosing the best backup battery for your home to meet your energy demand and energy efficiency goals. Whatever the reason you chose to install a solar storage solution, we are here to make it happen.

How does the home backup battery system work?
In the event of a power outage, all you have to do is run your house on batteries. Unfortunately, it’s a bit more complicated than that, so here are some essential things to consider.
The main complexity of using a battery as a backup power source is that the battery must meet stringent safety requirements. In the event of a power outage, engineers will have to work on the grid’s power lines, and there is no risk of doing it with any form of power generation or battery while working. It is why the solar inverter shuts down in the event of a power outage.
It is possible to run a house with a battery in the event of a power outage. Still, traditional household batteries are not currently adequately controlled-there is a risk of electrocution even if they are not 100% fully functional.
Instead, the backup battery system has relays that physically disconnect the building’s power from the grid. This is essentially a large switch that detects a voltage drop in the grid in the event of a power outage and disconnects the house from the grid. It needs to be placed between the inbound stash and the main motherboard, which requires space.
