Why Now Is The Time To Install A Solar Battery

There is no better time to install solar panels than right now in Australia because of rising energy costs. Australia leads the world in solar panel systems, and thanks to Federal and State Government rebates, it has become cheaper to buy and install them. According to the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water, more than a quarter of Australian households had solar panels on their rooftops by March 2022. This makes us the world leader in solar panels. In 2021 alone, Australians installed 380,000 new systems, and the total power capacity is 17 gigawatts, a virtual power station.

Now is indeed the right time to install solar panels like the three million Australian households who have done so. Thousands of these households also have solar batteries – many supplied and installed by Solar System Pty Ltd – to store the excess energy for use during night-time when there is no sunlight. Another alternative is to direct the excess electricity during the day into the grid and be paid for it.

However, before you decide to go ahead with solar batteries, remember installing them is not cheap at the moment, unless the state and federal governments provide more rebates. Talk to our experts at Solar System Pty Ltd for no-obligation advice and quotes regarding solar batteries.

Let us discuss some of the elements when it comes to getting the most bang for your buck regarding harnessing power from the sun at your home.


What is solar energy?

Solar panels take the protons from the sun’s rays before turning them into direct current (DC). This has to be converted into alternating current (AC) so that your household appliances can be powered. This is done with the use of an inverter. These are all important things to remember when you are planning to install solar panels in your home.

The extra energy from your solar panels needs to be stored and used at night when power is needed more. A rechargeable solar battery can be installed so that you are able to use this to power some of your appliances with the balance of power coming from the grid. Householders who want to stay off the grid will need a much bigger solar system and battery to produce and store the power for them to use both day and night, taking into consideration the rainy and winter months.

Main advantages of installing solar panels:

  • Clean and cheap energy from the sun
  • Once you install the solar panels, your energy bills will be significantly reduced
  • You don’t have to worry about periodic increases in the energy bill
  • Extra energy can either be stored in a solar battery or sold to the grid

Why Solar System is your best friend when it comes to solar energy

Solar System Pty Ltd is an Australian-owned and operated company offering the highest quality products and services. We offer an all-in-one design that offers our clients great reliability. Our mission is to help Australian homeowners realise the benefits of solar. When you install Solar System’s off-grid solar batteries, you will definitely save money.

When it comes to solar energy, there are three main components: solar system batteries, panels and inverters. Our clients can start with panels and inverters before adding solar power batteries later based on their needs and convenience.

How do solar batteries actually work?

Solar batteries are made up of an anode and a cathode. Anodes (negative) are where the electrons are stored, while the cathode (positive) is where they get recharged. Between the anode and cathode, there is an electrolyte and a separator. When you usually charge a battery, you require energy to power it, which is where the solar battery backup takes over.

Why should you install solar batteries?

  • They store excess electricity from your solar panels
  • The excess energy is used to charge batteries
  • The battery will discharge power at night when the panel don’t work
  • Using the power from the battery is cheaper than buying power from your energy provider
