Understanding Solar Battery Storage
During the day, solar panels supply your Colchester home with eco-friendly power. But as night approaches, and energy demands rise, this is where solar battery storage proves indispensable.
A domestic solar battery stores extra solar energy gathered during the day for nighttime use. It acts as an energy reservoir, capturing surplus electricity from your solar panels for later consumption. With a solar battery, you’re able to fully utilise the solar energy you produce.
In the absence of a battery, any excess solar electricity is either returned to the grid or remains unused. Solar battery installation enables you to retain and use more of the solar energy your panels produce rather than depending on grid electricity after sunset. This boosts your energy self-sufficiency, decreases your carbon footprint, and can lead to reduced electricity bills. An efficient battery storage system allows for uninterrupted solar energy use, extending beyond daylight hours and enhancing the efficacy of your solar setup.
