Look no further – Lumos PV has the perfect solution. Our whole home backup systems provide reliable power even when there’s a blackout. Read on to find out more about what our whole home backup systems are and how they can help you.

The basics of solar power

It is easier than ever now to have solar panels installed, and it can make a big difference to your electricity bills. Solar power is more environmentally friendly and solar energy can even be used to charge an electric vehicle. Solar PV panels often work in conjunction with a battery or energy storage which can contain the electricity from your solar cells – but what happens if there is a power cut?

The solution: whole home backup systems

Whole home backup systems are your answer. These systems seamlessly switch your whole house over to run on your battery when there is a power cut. This means that you no longer need to be reliant on the electricity grid – with Lumos’s whole home backup system, you will have reliable power even in a blackout. It is easy to install and use, so you don’t have to worry about complex installation processes or other technical difficulties.

Benefits of using a whole home backup system

The use of a whole home backup system provides many benefits. It is an efficient way to ensure your power supply remains consistent, no matter the circumstances. It eliminates the need for expensive and unreliable generators, which can be costly and noisy. With our whole home backup systems, you have the assurance that your lights will stay on even during blackouts! Moreover, it also helps to reduce your electricity bill, as you no longer need to worry about the cost of running a generator.

Does this come with every solar panel system?

It is actually a very common misconception that if you have solar battery storage as part of your solar panel system then you will also have this functionality.

The reality is that even if you have a battery system, it may not be capable of this. Most solar batteries do not have the ability to automatically switch over and run on your battery when there is a power cut. This means that you can be left in the dark during blackouts, unless you have a whole home backup system installed. This is definitely not something that you should take as a given, so you need to make sure that you choose a system which supports this function if you want to be sure

What systems can provide automatic switching?

There are a few innovative systems that can provide automatic switching to make sure you are never left in the dark or unable to access your solar system energy. The most popular example of a system that does this is the Tesla powerwall. Other companies are working hard to provide these systems too such as GivEnergy & Solaredge.
