Unlimited Runtime Backup Power

We're getting more and more calls inquiring about backup power. There are several ways to handle this. The old standby is a generator and a transfer switch. Choose a few circuits to back up, such as refrigeration, well, and a light circuit or two. A minute or two after the power goes out, the generator starts and the backed up circuits come back to life. Power comes back on, and the backed up circuits go back to grid power and the generator shuts off.

Many people are surprised to learn that their grid tied PV system turns off when the power goes out. We can provide you with a battery backup system that uses PV to maintain charge on the batteries and send excess power back to the grid. These systems still qualify for Energy Trust Incentives along with Oregon and Federal Tax Credits.

For maximum power security, we can design a system for you that instantly transfers loads to the battery bank. When the battery reaches a predetermined discharge level, the generator automatically starts. By delaying the start, the generator 'overlooks' short outages. When it does start, it uses its full capacity to recharge the battery bank and keep the loads going. This is much more fuel efficient, and gives you virtually unlimited run time.

Life Saver

US Cellular contracted with Willpower Electric to design a cost effective off-grid solution for this remote site. After a year and a half in the development stage, a team of contractors came up with original solutions to the unique demands of the environment and budget. Three weeks after the site went on the air (January 2), the Skamania County Sheriffs received their first ever 911 call from the south side of Mt St. Helens and launched a rescue effort that successfully plucked a severely injured snowmobiler from a steep slope on the mountain.
