Residential Solar BATTERIES
Backing Up Your Own Solar Power
In addition to residential solar, we can install a storage battery. Instead of feeding your excess power to the grid, your battery can be charged and electricity stored during off-peak which is then used at peak times when your grid electricity is more expensive. It can also provide power during power outages.
Whilst this may fit you budget right now, if you choose to wait, we can install a storage battery at a later time and hook it up to your system.
Solar storage batteries improve your energy costs in the long-term. Whilst there is initial outlay, by storing electricity from the solar panels when it is off peak and using it during peak times this saves money. That may be an effective strategy for Winter and shorter daylight hours.
As battery technology continues to advance, the price to your store solar power drops every year. An assessment of your premises and a quote will let you review your options.

Why would I get a storage battery rather than flow the excess electricity to the grid ?
Whilst there is an initial outlay, with a storage battery correctly set up and configured, you end up being closer to self-sufficient in your home.
Usually, the power generated is stored when it is 8c a kilowatt and discharged when the rate is 28c. As electricity can be an expensive utility and depending on your usage, this can be a significant option for some users.
How much is a storage battery ?
It depends on the system you choose. Once we assess your site and roof – we can discuss and quote storage options.
