Understanding Solar Battery Storage Installation
During daylight, solar panels provide your St Neots home with clean energy. But what about when the sun sets and electricity demand peaks in the evening? This is where solar battery storage becomes essential.
A home solar battery enables the storage of excess solar energy generated throughout the day for use at night. It acts as an energy reservoir, capturing additional power from your solar panels for later use. With batteries, you can maximise the self-consumption of your solar-generated power.
Without battery storage, any unused solar electricity is either exported back to the grid or goes unused. Installing a solar battery means you can retain and utilise more of the solar energy your panels capture rather than defaulting to grid electricity after dusk. This enhances your energy independence, lowers your carbon footprint, and can reduce electricity bills. In essence, the right battery storage system empowers you to utilise solar energy continuously, beyond daylight hours, taking your solar setup to a new level of efficiency.
