Imagine it’s July and 100 degrees outside in Phoenix. You’re inside your home, enjoying a glass of cold iced tea while watching a movie on the couch when suddenly the grid goes down. Your ceiling fan turns off, your Netflix movie goes black, and you begin to worry about your food spoiling in the fridge. In the middle of summer this is the worst time to have a black out, what if it lasts hours but what if it lasts days? If you have solar, your system will not operate, even during the day because your inverter (the brain of your system) is tied to the grid and cannot function during an outage. So now what are you going to do, and how will you take care of your family?
The Secure Power Supply is a simple and affordable way to add a touch of resiliency to your home and protect you during an outage. The newest version of this product provides 2,000 watts of energy, even when the grid goes down. This amount can be used to run fans, portable AC units, and even allows you to keep your refrigerator on! Now you can be rest assured that your food won’t spoil. Keep in mind, this product only works with your solar system when the sun is up.
The Secure Power Supply is a SMA product and is compatible with most SMA inverters. If you’re interested in this capability, our Service team will gladly check if your system is compatible or discuss inverter upgrades. If you have a newer SMA inverter, you may already have this product included into your system; check your inverter for the outlet shown on the image below.
