Be prepared the next time power goes out or say goodbye to your electric utility forever.

We offer storage solutions and intelligent battery systems for backup power and much more! You can even use the power at night when your solar array isn’t producing or during on-peak periods to avoid surcharges.

A simple backup power source is not unlike the generators for sale at any hardware store. It can keep the lights on and the refrigerator cold during a blackout. Additionally, larger backup systems can even run power-hungry devices like air conditioners or clothes dryers.

As a backup power source, a battery is relatively unobtrusive, and can be tucked away in a cabinet or in some cases placed on a wall. When paired with a PV solar system, it doesn’t require any gasoline, diesel or other fuel- which might run out during an emergency. And it doesn’t produce any exhaust that can be dangerous if not vented properly.

At NC Solar Now we offer pre-designed battery solutions to help simplify the process of purchasing and installing a solar storage system for your home or small business.  The system can easily be added into the cost of your solar photovoltaic purchase, without any confusion or guesswork.  Our pre-designed solutions can also be easily paired with any existing solar system up to 12kW in size.  

These solutions can be programmed to meet your specific needs.  They can be used as a backup system keeping your essential loads running in the event of an emergency, providing peace of mind and confidence in your independence from the threat of a utility outage.  The system can also be programmed for self-consumption for customers under time of use rate schedules.  Self-consumption allows you to save your extra solar energy during the day to use later in the evening when you are still using “on-peak” power but the sun has gone down.  In either case any extra solar production from your solar array will still be “exported” to the utility grid to offset your utility consumption. 

The simplicity of our solutions will help take the headache and confusion out of sizing and pricing your solar backup system.   We have a simple two step formula to quickly evaluate equipment costs, expected life of your batteries and the amount of storage that the system will provide you .  This helps dispel any confusion about the capabilities of the system and removes any hidden fees from cropping up later in the process.  With the design and cost aspect removed from the equation the purchasing process can be streamlined.  The pre-designed system will also ensure that you are getting exactly what you expect while still allowing flexibility with how you utilize the system.
