As concerns over climate change and energy security grow, residential solar panels are becoming an increasingly important option for homeowners. In this blog post, we'll take a look at how the smart solar market is changing the future of solar energy for residential properties and how you can make the switch to this clean, renewable source of power.
Home automation allows homeowners to control appliances and energy consumption in their homes electronically, from the internet. This allows homeowners to control the energy consumption in their homes even while they are away. Load management is similar, it allows utilities to reduce demand for electricity during peak usage times which can, in turn, reduce costs.
Home automation and load management are becoming critical, future possibilities of solar energy. Currently, no one in the smart solar market is metering solar energy to control how and where it is used. To keep up, the smart solar market will need to make home electrical usage smarter. The breakers that feed power to the homes will need to be automated so if you are away from your home and there is a power outage, you can prioritize and control which loads get power. This will typically need a main load panel retrofit with smart breakers and a smart electrical panel.
In order to help you reduce your carbon footprint and save on your monthly electricity bill, adding a residential solar system can benefit your home. In addition, there has been increased investment in the technology for the smart solar market. Adding the convenience of a smart electrical panel will help you manage your electrical loads remotely from your smartphone. The key is to partner with SOLARPARTS so we can identify and advise load management profiles that help you get the most out of your solar PV investment.
Despite the advantages of using solar power, power outages can still affect your solar PV system. That’s why it is recommended to install a whole house solar battery backup system. This solar energy storage solution will keep your refrigerator and outlets running during power outages or other crises. Not only can you rely on this system to keep your power running, but home battery backup systems can also help reduce electricity costs (via custom discharge profiles to send power back to the grid when it is the most beneficial to the homeowner) and prevent the use of environmentally unfriendly gas or diesel generators.
In the future of solar energy, solar battery storage through battery connectivity will become a lot more common. Instead of selling energy back to the grid you can store your power in a battery and use it at night. This means a battery is used as an energy storage device that is installed to take the extra power produced by most solar PV systems during the day and store it for use either at night OR in an outage situation.
Most residential battery solutions currently available have a storage capacity of around 9.8 kWh. Depending on the critical loads connected, these can last anywhere from a day to a couple of days with full sun when recharging can happen.
SOLARPARTS can also help you maximize the “days of autonomy” (the time the batteries can power your loads) by installing a smart load panel that allows you to perform calculated load shedding in the event of a power outage. Our team of engineers and designers looks for smart solutions to help you save money. With SOLARPARTS approach, customers can save money by limiting the number of batteries needed by having smart load control management via a smart electrical panel!
