What to know when installing a home solar battery storage
Solar panels can generate clean energy for your home during daylight hours. But what happens when the sun goes down and electricity demand rises in the evenings? This is where adding solar battery storage comes into play.
A home solar battery allows you to store surplus solar electricity during the day for use at night. It acts like a reservoir, capturing excess energy produced by your panels so you can tap into it later when you need it most. Batteries let you maximise self-consumption of the solar power you generate.
Without a battery, unused solar electricity gets exported to the grid or lost. By installing storage, you can keep and use more solar energy captured by your panels rather than sending it off and reverting to grid electricity after dark. This increases energy independence, reduces your carbon footprint and lowers power bills. In short, with the right battery, you can unlock solar power around the clock, not just when the sun is up. It takes your solar system to the next level.
