Hurricane Season is Here

How Solar Power and a Battery Backup Can Help.

Summer is here! That means warm weather, beach vacations and lounging by the pool! It also means it’s that time of year for those crazy storms with alphabetically ordered names, that’s right folks…Hurricane Season is here! 

Hurricane season will last from June until November and according to the Climate Prediction Center there is a 70% chance of having 13 to 20 named storms, including three to five major hurricanes (Categories 3-5).  So what does that mean for us in North Carolina? We will most likely feel the effects of these storms and could definitely experience power outages. Power outages in the summer, is there anything more uncomfortable?

What Does That Mean For Solar?

If your home has a solar panel system you can experience power outages during the hurricane season. However, if you have a battery backup solution, you will NOT LOSE power and can keep living your best life no matter the weather conditions! What kind of magic is this? 

Well, at NC Solar Now, we offer a battery backup solution that is unlike the generators you buy at the hardware store. With the Battery BackUp Solution, there will be NO interruption of power during an outage. That means when a storm hits and the power is out…your home will STILL HAVE POWER! That is a huge bonus for our North Carolina summers! It is also worth mentioning that customers who purchase a battery backup solution are able to receive a 26 % tax credit.

At NC Solar Now, we are also a certified installer for the Tesla Powerwall. Powerwall is a rechargeable home battery system that lets you store solar energy generated during the day and use it at night, which allows you to self-power your home and reduce your reliance on the utility grid. Powerwall also protects your home from a  power outage with seamless and reliable backup power. Through the Tesla mobile app, you will have full visibility and control over your self-powered home.

Prepare To Make The Neighbors Jealous

So while your neighbors are scrambling to buy a generator at the hardware store and are stressing about all the food in the freezer that they have to throw away, your home will be smooth sailing. You will be sitting on your front porch drinking your ice tea (on ice), your kids will still be able to make their TikTok videos, you can still stream your favorite shows on Netflix. Your neighbors will be so very jealous of your cool, self-sufficient lifestyle that you will be the talk of the town.
