Extreme weather events and recent load shedding during heatwaves have got a lot of householders talking about back-up power sources.
Some are being sucked into buying back-up generators after an aggressive and ill-informed advertising campaign.
- Fact One: Generators are not good thinking. They can cause more problems than they are worth. They may be fine for powering up the old beer fridge in your garden shed but connect a modern fridge to them and you risk terminal damage to its delicate electronics.
- Fact Two: Fluctuating power from a generator puts many modern household appliances at risk, especially those controlled by electronics.
- Fact Three: Reliable solar-powered-battery backup is available for not much more cost than the generators being offered on the market now.
ERS technicians can advise on the best option for your situation from three major international brands. The ERS difference is that we assess the individual needs of each household we consult. We aren’t driven by sales success, but by the success of our customer’s journey to become “energy independent”. A lot of our sales are by word-of-mouth.
We recommend you stay connected to the grid but don’t pay for any power you use – by employing the latest battery technology to store the energy you have harvested from the sun.
