After two significant Searles Valley earthquakes that shook the ground in the SCV as well, a Santa Clarita solar company is letting the community know about an available solar option that offers battery-powered electricity in the case of a power outage.
“Earthquakes present a threat to the electrical grid, just like a lot of other things,” said HomeLink Pros Solar Founder Mike Terry.
A few other potential causes of a power outage are brush fires, increased electricity demand during a heat wave, the electric company’s precautionary efforts to prevent wildfires during high winds and even cyber threats, Terry noted.
“China and Russia have both hacked into our electrical grid at times and have had the capability to shut our grid down, and haven’t done so,” he said. “We have three grids in the United States, and the number of things that can impact those is growing.”
Though a traditional solar system won’t protect a homeowner against a power outage, new technology has enabled the Santa Clarita solar company to incorporate a solar-charged battery to be used as a backup power source in the case of an outage, according to Terry.
“What that typically does is it lets a homeowner use their plugs, their lights, their refrigerator, those types of things, for a sustained period,” he said. “The solar charges the battery back up each day.”
Instead of creating immediate cost savings for homeowners through their electricity bill, those who choose the battery backup option would instead apply those savings to the battery.
“The savings that somebody would normally see in the way of cheaper solar power goes towards the paying off of that battery,” Terry said. “So typically a homeowner in Santa Clarita can get solar powered energy for their home and backup power to run their lights and plugs on a sustained basis for about the same amount they’re paying for their (current) energy bill.”
