Whole Home Backup or Critical Load Backup: Whole Home backup- Installed Tesla Backup Gateway (BMS) and CT's at the meter location to intercept the main incoming supply so now the entire home is backed up. This home can now be self-powered under self-consumption mode with a chosen set % for emergency backup during power outages. Tesla Powerwall allows the system to sell the excess solar energy back to BCHydro via net-metering as well as allowing the property to remain self-powered, potentially Off-Grid indefinitely during a power outage. The system includes a real-time monitoring application so that the customer can manage/balance their electrical loads during grid failure.
