Understanding Solar Battery Storage Setup
In daylight hours, your Loughborough home benefits from the clean energy provided by solar panels. But what occurs when evening arrives and the demand for electricity surges? It’s in these times that solar battery storage becomes crucial.
A domestic solar battery accumulates surplus solar power generated during the day for use at night. It serves as an energy reserve, holding additional power from your solar panels for later consumption. With a battery in place, you can optimise the use of the solar energy generated.
Without battery storage, any extra solar power is either redirected back to the grid or goes unused. Installing a solar battery enables you to retain and utilise more of the solar energy your panels capture rather than defaulting to grid electricity post-dusk. This enhances your energy independence, reduces your carbon footprint, and may decrease your electricity bills. In essence, an effective battery storage system facilitates the continuous use of solar energy beyond just daylight hours, improving the efficiency of your solar arrangement.
