Frequently Asked Questions
Q. If it rains for 3 days, what happens? How long can my battery charge last?
A. The system is designed to function as normal with 3 days of rain. Note also that during rainfall the panels are still able to generate power to run your home/business. This is so because the panels do not need direct sunlight. They use ultra violet light during day time to generate electricity.
Q. What happens if the battery charge gets too low?
A. If the charge of your battery ever reaches a voltage that we set manually as critical, the Inverter has an automatic change over switch which connects you back to the grid until the battery recharges from the sun. Therefore we do not recommend that you disconnect from the grid. (To protect the life of your battery the limit we set as critical is only 50% of the battery’s capacity).
