In February 2021, the entire grid of the state of Texas was just four minutes and 37 seconds away from complete collapse. Rolling blackouts that lasted for days in subzero temperatures left many Texans to resort to methods of sheltering and keeping warm that they had never thought they would have to experience.

Anything can cause your power to go out. Nearby car accidents. Road construction. It happens all the time. Now, we’re facing more extreme weather than ever and the strain on the electrical grid continues to grow.

The best strategy is to already have a plan in place. After all, an emergency is only an emergency when you’re not prepared for it. With a solar panel system powered by battery backup by LG or a Tesla Powerwall, you and your family will be ready for anything.

A Better Battery From LG

Whether it’s for your home or business, an LG RESU10h backup battery will keep your power on and running during an outage. The backup battery ensures virtually seamless power when the grid goes down. The best part – the power comes on automatically – whether you’re onsite or away – less than one second after losing power. LG RESU10h provides up to 10 kWH of power. These small, sleek, low-profile units mount just about anywhere. When combined with up to two more units via the RESU Plus Expansion kit, your backup batteries will buy you even more time during an outage. Scale your power as your power needs grow. Longhorn Solar and LG have the solutions for you. With remote monitoring capabilities and the mobile app, you can view and manage your backup battery’s status from anywhere, at any time.

Or Try the Tesla Powerwall

Tesla Powerwall is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery system that is designed to provide backup power for homes. It is a sleek and compact device that can be installed on the wall, and it is very efficient in storing energy. The Tesla Powerwall comes in two models, with a storage capacity of 13.5 kWh and 14 kWh respectively. The battery can be charged using solar panels or from the grid during off-peak hours, and it can be used to power your home during peak hours or when there is a power outage. With the Powerwall, you can reduce your reliance on the grid and your carbon footprint while enjoying reliable and affordable power. It is a great investment for those who want to take a step towards energy independence.
