Battery Storage has been growing in popularity, as consumers seek greater self-sufficiency, and independence from grid electricity. It enables you to make the most of the electricity you produce through your solar pv array, allowing you to capture and use almost 100% of your production. This means not only great electricity savings, but it also means that free electricity is there whenever you want it, and not just when the sun is shining.
“A battery storage system is the obvious accompaniment to any solar PV system, enabling you to make the most of all the renewable energy you produce.”
There has been a huge influx of battery systems onto the market in the last 2 years. There is a very large difference between the quality and longevity of the batteries themselves. It is important to remember that the battery is only half the equation, with the battery control system being equally important.
“A battery storage system needs to be sized to suit not only the requirements of the household, but also the output of the solar PV system.”
A quality battery system, appropriately sized to the needs of your household, will last for well in excess of a decade. It will rapidly pay for itself through increasing your bill savings, by enabling you to use your solar generated power day and night.
