The Four Star Solar 4,400 Backup Kit has your back in a blackout!
Let's face it, when the grid goes down your life slows to a crawl:
- No lights
- No phone
- No refrigeration
- No computers
- No home business
Stop getting left in the dark!
Simply install the Four Star 4,400 Backup Kit and you're ready to go when the utility grid is knocked out or unstable. Just decide which loads you want to run and you're back in business. This emergency Backup Power System is a must-have during hurricanes, tornadoes and other natural disasters! If managed carefully, this system will run for days while powering up your:
- Cell phones
- Well pump
- Security alarm
Not appropriate for: Air-conditioning, heating or agricultural irrigation pumps.
Seamless electrical coverage
This 240-volt backup power unit incorporates an inverter that monitors the grid for disruptions. When the grid goes down or is disconnected, the inverter switches to battery backup in less than a second, keeping your critical loads online until the grid comes back. The battery banks of the Four Star Solar Backup 4,400 can be charged with grid electricity, or by generator, or by solar with the addition of a charge controller and solar panels. The system can also be expanded by adding additional batteries. See Battery Options below.
Our Backup Power Central 4400 is designed to be permanently installed and hard-wired into your household breaker panel. A licensed electrician will be needed for installation of the backup system and critical circuit sub-panel.
Add solar panels, qualify for the Federal Tax Credit
Easily add solar panels with our Solar Panel Add-on Options below. Adding solar panels expands the capacity of your backup power system and qualifies the whole purchase for a 30% federal tax credit.
This is essentially a small offgrid power system with 240 VAC output. Read our Load Evaluation Worksheet to understand how to determine which critical loads you will be able to power. If you need to expand capacity you can add more solar panels and batteries, and those will qualify for an additional tax credit.
