With your solar panels sourcing power all day, it seems a shame to waste it. Solar battery storage is a smart solution for collecting your clean, green energy to use when it suits you – not just while the sun is out.
With the growing cost of power and predicted grid instability on the horizon, being as independent as possible has never looked so appealing. Whether you’re looking to purchase panels and a battery in one hit, or add a battery to a current panel system, a battery will maximise your solar investment and help you save even more.
The surge in both residential and commercial solar adoption across Australia has lead to a decrease in feed-in tariffs. Storing power, therefore, now makes better economic sense.
Solar panels generate the most energy in the first part of the day – when people are less likely to be at home. With a battery though, you can capture and retain power to use after the sun sets, which is when your household probably needs it most.
With the cost of living increasing, a solar battery is the key to unlocking independence from power companies.
With a reputable solar battery you can minimise disruptions to your home and business in the event of a power outage.
Avoid peak rates
Many states in Australia also have ‘time of use’ (TOU) tariffs for commercial, industrial and residential energy use. But, by switching to stored power at peak times you can help your hip pocket.
Solar batteries have a range of capacities depending on your goal – from improving your energy independence to going completely off-grid. The options are divided into AC coupled solar batteries (on-grid) and DC coupled systems (off-grid).
