Solar batteries offer so much benefit to the home for those looking to get or already have a residential solar system. Without a battery, your usage of your home solar system is limited strictly to the hours when your solar panels are producing power.
But when you opt into this technology, there’s so many possibilities and potential for how you can harness this clean and remarkable renewable resource.
Use more Clean Energy, less fossil fuels
Many looking to invest into solar panels do so for the promise of clean and cheaper electricity to power their lightning needs and other appliances. However without a solar battery system, there might not be saving as much as expected. Consider this: most people today work for long hours during the day, outside the house. For those working 9 to 5, most of the solar power that your panels produce will likely be when you’re not at home. Solar battery storage thereby allows those with a system to use more of the solar power you create, instead of sending most of it off to an energy provider.
More Convenient Use
Having a solar battery installed means that you can worry less about your usage and the steps many take to make the most out of their solar system. You can have the benefit of using your power anytime, day or night, with extra to spare even in peak use times. By opting for your own electricity when the grid is most in demand, you save more by bypassing those higher fees charged at that time.
Solar systems with battery storage make your household more independent. In an apt installation, you will only need to use the grid for back up electricity. In the case that the grid ever goes down like in a black out, you will also have a ready back up source of electricity. Unlike gas or diesel run generators, solar batteries also run quietly. So, you can be rest assured of no added disturbance for you or the neighbours.
Save on Electricity Bills
In the past, the feed-in tariffs energy providers gave back for the electricity solar panel owners sent to the grid was a big appeal when it comes to energy savings. Now, with the reduced amount of what you can earn back from feed-in tariffs, more are deciding the best way to pile up savings is with a solar battery. By being able to use your solar generated electricity throughout all hours of the day, you are always using solar power first and that’s great for your hip pocket in the long run. Saving you from those larger fees during energy demand on the grid.
When you are seriously considering investing in a solar battery, you first need to work out if this technology is right for you. This will be by assessing your energy needs and how much you are looking to spend.
