5 – Do I need a system for backup power?

Even though you have a solar energy system, your power could also be interrupted for the safety of the repair crews who may be working on the power outage. Homeowners, looking to protect themselves against outages and blackouts should consider a generator or battery backup system combined with solar power to gain total independence from the grid. With the recent power outages from PG&E and Southern California Edison, homeowners in Southern California should work with a trusted, local solar company like Tiger Stripe Solar.
