Battery Systems

Northwest Florida residents are no strangers to bad weather.  Hurricanes and heavy thunderstorms are an annual occurrence, and can leave Pensacola, Destin, and Panama City area homeowners without power for extended periods of time.  Some homes and businesses get by with gasoline or natural gas-powered generators for emergencies, but these machines are often unreliable, have many moving parts that require heavy maintenance, and make a ton of noise when they are operating.  Additionally, they need to be refueled routinely, which can be a real pain if the electricity goes out and you discover the tank on your generator is empty. This is why the best option for any Florida panhandle homeowner hoping to hedge against outages and emergencies is a solar battery backup.

There are two types of battery systems: Grid-tied with battery back-up and off-grid. Each one has advantages to consider when determining what kind of design you want for your property.  Keep your eyes peeled for our next blog post  which will explain the two systems in detail or for more information on how a Florida Panhandle solar battery backup can protect you and your family, call Compass Solar Energy at (850) 439-0035 or email us at to schedule a free consultation.
