Solar Battery Storage PETERBOROUGH

Want to know more about solar battery storage Peterborough? Installing solar panels is a great first step. However, adding a solar battery storage system can take your home’s energy independence to the next level. With storage, you can capture extra solar energy during the sunniest parts of the day for use whenever you need it. This allows you to keep benefiting from your panels even when the sun goes down or for when the typical British clouds roll in!

Solar batteries act as a reservoir, storing surplus clean energy from your panels so you can tap into it during high-demand evening hours. This lessens your reliance on the grid and reduces the impact of blackouts or shortages. With the right battery solution, you can unlock the full potential of your solar panels, maximising the self-consumption of energy from the sun. Our solar experts at Residential Solar are here to help determine the ideal solar battery system for your household’s needs and budget. We want to ensure you can reap the most savings and energy independence benefits possible from your investment in solar power. Contact us today to learn more about solar battery options!

With the initial cost for solar battery storage starting at £4,000, contact our team for specific costs based on your requirements and needs.

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.
