Worried about prolonged power outages or just looking to back up critical loads? You’ll need to size your battery system to ensure you have adequate reserves to meet your energy goals. Thankfully, the degree to which our systems provide backup power is adjustable depending on the size of the inverter, the size of the battery, and whether you choose to incorporate a generator or not. There is no limit on the size of the battery we can offer.
How Solar & Storage Works
A battery-based system provides a ‘reservoir’ of electricity that is ‘refilled’ by your solar panels when the sun is shining. At night or during an outage, you can then pull this stored energy from the batteries to power your critical loads! We offer scalable solutions to ensure your battery system is sized appropriately to meet your energy needs. From off-grid cabins to advanced microgrids and resiliency projects, we have decades of experience working with all kinds of battery technologies.
Our systems pair any inverter option with one of the premium battery technologies below. For inverters, we’re proud to offer the rugged Outback Power Systems Radian line of inverters, which we’ve been working with in our projects for nearly 20 years. With excellent reliability and a virtuous customer interface, the Radian series offers both grid-interactive and stand-alone capabilities in the same package.

Benefits of Backup Solar Batteries
Independent Power partners with premium battery manufacturers like SunPower, Humless, and Rolls Surrette to offer best-in-class energy storage solutions for grid-tied and off-grid applications. Each battery is safe, reliable, and comes in a variety of sizes and capacities to meet your project’s energy needs.
Some common benefits to solar batteries are:
- Power when you need it most: Solar panels work during the day, but at night or on cloudy days, the solar batteries provide reserve power.
- Lower electricity bills: In areas with time-of-use rates or demand charges, batteries can help save energy during periods of high demand.
- Reduced Carbon Footprint: Solar + storage helps you use more environmentally friendly energy, which means less pollution from fossil fuels.
