It’s no surprise that the increasing unpredictability of our weather patterns has led many residential and commercial property owners to consider backup options when it comes powering their properties. And it’s a smart move! Business productivity can suffer immensely with unpredictable grid failures – as well as your loved ones.

So, what’s the best option? Well, there are a couple things to consider here…

Backup generators have long been the standard when it comes to alternative power sources in the event of an outage. More recently though, property owners have been leaning towards newer and cleaner battery options for their backup power source.

Both are viable alternatives! Here are some of the main comparison points you need to consider:

  • Solar + storage is without a doubt the most cost-effective way to ensure consistent power to your property.
  • Battery-powered backup can be a more eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to the traditional gas-powered generator.
  • The upfront cost for backup batteries can be high, it’s true. But the lifetime savings you accrue with this type of power storage will more than offset the upfront investment.
  • The cost for either will depend largely on the size of your property.
  • And the required energy source for your backup product is another thing to consider when it comes to a sustainable investment cost (solar versus gas).

Final food for thought: Gas-powered generators, as a general rule, are relatively inexpensive and easy to adapt to your property’s power needs. But when paired with solar, you can actually save money on your electric bills with the backup battery option. And they offer a clean, quiet power that you really can’t get with a standard generator.

There you have it! Those are the main points to consider when choosing your backup power source. And, as always, one of our representatives will be more than happy to walk you through the best options for your property.
