MAKING SOLAR RELIABLE
WITH A BACK-UP GENERATOR
SOLAR IS UNRELIABLE WHEN...
Solar insulation is limited (seasonal, cloud, fire smoke).
Heat or cold degrades the battery.
Theft is a concern.
Frequent clearing/cleaning is required due to tree coverage, sand, or debris.
BACK-UP GENERATORS INCREASE SOLAR RELIABILITY BECAUSE THEY...
Eliminate failures due to poor solar insolation periods (smoke, rain, seasonal).
Avoid shutdowns and costs associated with battery failure in extreme heat or cold.
Decrease the total number of panels and/or batteries required.
Extend the life of the battery by limiting the depth of discharge or providing heat.
