Question

Can I charge this system from the grid?

I don't currently have any solar panels or wind turbines installed, but am looking for a battery back-up system for my home. Can I charge this system from my grid power supply to use as a stand-by back up generator for when the power goes out?

Any of the BPS Power Systems that you have shown are off grid capable. The system will require solar panels or a wind generator for operation. An electrician would be needed to properly install the unit. An extra lockable battery cabinet can be purchased from the manufacturer, Backup Power Source.

Staff Answer
This 6000 watt backup system can have batteries added. Safe storage would have to be provided for additional batteries as this system does not provide extra room for more. This system can be stacked by adding one or two more systems. Just adding batteries will lengthen run time (not output), and length of time required for charging. Solar Panel and/or wind generators provide a great alternative for recharging batteries. A larger charge controller may be required, if more batteries are added. Location and charge time is different for every situation. Please contact a local qualified electrician to determine what is best for your situation,.

Staff Answer
Each of the 8 batteries contained in this system has a maximum storage capacity of 1 kilowatt. With that being said there is a total storage space of 8 kilowatts.

The hours that the unit can put out are unlimited and directly related to the energy source filling the battery bank (Solar, Wind, etc...). The more efficiently you fill the bank the more consistently you can operate the power system.
