How Does A Generac Battery Backup Work?3


What It Does

With a battery backup, you can store unused power generated by your solar panels for later use, such as during a power outage, or at night, when your panels aren’t producing.

How It Works

Typically, solar panels can only power your home when you’re connected to the grid. By storing excess solar energy inside your battery, you can power a portion of your home independently from the grid.

What It Matters

Bundling a Generac battery backup with your solar panel system helps your solar energy go further for your home’s energy needs. Watch the video to see how it works.

Solar Battery and Power Outages


Poor weather conditions, construction and more can impact the electric grid. A backup power source can offer you the opportunity to keep your home’s essentials running during an outage. Even in the winter months or during times of low solar production, a battery backup can help your system provide solar power to your home.

Learn More About Your Solar Battery Modes


The Generac battery backup offers four storage modes, allowing you to manage your supply of solar power for use overnight or during grid failure

Self-Supply Mode

Send excess solar output from your solar panels directly to the Generac battery. When the battery reaches full capacity, additional solar power is sent back to the grid.

Clean Backup Mode

Instead of using solar energy for your home’s day-to-day power needs, first send the solar electricity your system produces directly to your backup battery to keep it at full capacity.

Priority Backup Mode

Supplement your stored solar electricity with grid power in order to keep a full supply of electricity in your Generac battery.

Grid Mode

Use grid power to keep your battery at full capacity. This may be the right option if your backup battery is not connected to your solar panel system.
