Another option is to get a grid tied solar system that has a back-up battery. This system works exactly like a grid-tied system, but in the event of a power outage, the back-up battery will provide dedicated power for your home.
Home batteries allow you to get the most out of your solar panels. Batteries store up any extra energy generated by your solar panels so you can use your solar energy around the clock. Home batteries require little-to-no maintenance and hook up to your solar panels and utility grid to store and serve you power.
