South Australians: Protect Yourself Against Power Outages

Power outages and electricity disruptions can cause problems for your home or business if you are unprepared. Solar Power Direct offers you our top advice to navigate your next electricity blackout in South Australia. We look at why to install commercial solar systems, residential solar panels and solar batteries Adelaide wide.

Be Prepared with Solar Panels for Houses

In case of a power outage, it’s a good idea to be prepared. Here’s a couple of things you can do to ensure you’re prepared for a power outage:

  • Keep a portable charger on hand to charge your mobile phone.
  • If you have internet access, you can check the location of known power outages in South Australia and receive updates on how long they are likely to last.
  • Keep a flashlight with new batteries on hand for when the lights go out to check your fuse box for flipped fuses.
  • Install residential solar panels or commercial solar panels paired with solar batteries for Adelaide properties. This will give you electricity to use during blackout events.

Benefits of Commercial Solar Systems and Solar Batteries Adelaide

In the event of state-wide power outages or power restrictions, energy independent commercial solar systems are a great solution for businesses. Your solar panels will collect the sun’s energy during the day, and a solar battery can store any unused energy for later use.

The advantage of solar panels for businesses is that commercial solar panels are typically larger, sized for larger roofs and able to collect more energy. Many businesses only run during business hours, which means they operate when the sun shines. In the event of a power outage, commercial solar systems allow you to keep your business powered, if you have an appropriately sized solar system, solar battery and enough sunlight to generate energy. Solar Power Direct can assess your needs and help you to choose and install your new solar panel inverters, solar batteries and solar panels for businesses.
