While solar panels alone reduce your energy bills, they don’t store the excess energy you generate, and this is sent back to the grid…unless you install a battery storage. 

In the world of renewable energy, the concept of battery storage has emerged as a game-changer, transforming the way solar energy is harnessed, stored and utilised for everyday use. 

If you’re considering investing in a solar battery for your energy storage, then we’ve got 4 points for you to consider. 

What is a Battery Storage System?

A battery storage system is a technology that captures and stores excess energy generated by solar panels. Think of it as your energy vault, preserving the sun’s power to be used when the panels aren’t actively generating electricity, such as during cloudy days or night time.

How Does a Battery Storage System Work?

  • Energy Capture: When your solar panels produce more electricity than your immediate needs, the excess energy flows into the battery storage system instead of being fed back into the grid.
  • Charging the Batteries: The battery storage system stores this surplus energy in a series of batteries, typically lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are designed to efficiently store and release energy over time.
  • Energy Release: When your solar panels aren’t generating electricity, like at night or on overcast days, the battery storage system steps in. It releases the stored energy, allowing you to power your home without relying on the grid.

What are the advantages of owning a battery storage system?

The decision to invest in battery storage depends on your energy goals and lifestyle. Here are some factors to consider:

  • Energy Independence: If you’re aiming for greater energy independence and reducing reliance on your solar panels,  battery storage can be a valuable addition
  • Backup Power: Battery storage provides a reliable backup power source during power outages, ensuring your essential appliances stay operational.. Battery storage ensures that you use the maximum amount of energy your solar panels generate, even during non-sunny hours.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint: Installing solar batteries allows you to reduce your home’s carbon footprint and bring it closer to self-sufficiency. This is hugely important for anyone who wants to get involved in the green revolution and reduce excess pollution. Along with battery storage, solar creates much less pollution in comparison to the old age fossil fuels.
