What is a solar battery?
Solar battery storage allows you to store electricity generated from the sun via your solar panels to use in the evening or at a later date. Adding a solar battery system is a great way to use renewable energy to increase your independence from the grid.
We offer a solar battery as part of a solar system package or you can opt to add a battery at a later stage.
Adding solar battery storage
Solar panels generate the most energy throughout the day when, traditionally, homes use the least amount of electricity. This means your solar PV system will be producing a lot of surplus energy which would otherwise be wasted. Adding a battery allows you to store this extra electricity to use as and when you want.
You could choose to use the excess energy stored in your battery to power your home in the evening, making you even more independent from the grid or you could charge your electric vehicle, increasing the amount of clean energy used by your family.
Adding a battery could mean that the bulk of the electricity used by your home is low-carbon energy generated from the sun, meaning you’ll import less electricity from the grid, saving you money on your energy bills.
