Solar Batteries

Solar batteries are charged with energy from solar panels. They provide multiple advantages within residential solar PV systems. Before opting for solar battery storage, it is important to consider the arrangement of your system. Most systems are tethered to the local utility (grid) that either consumes excess electricity supplied by the system or, in turn, facilitates energy consumption that surpasses the threshold that the system can supply. If the system is grid-connected then a battery, although not necessary, can still provide several advantages in the way of power outage recovery and avoiding peak time energy rates. If you live off-grid or in an area prone to power outages then a solar battery can be an integral component of your solar PV system for the following reasons.

Most Common Reasons For Using Solar Batteries

Living Off-the-grid

For those who enjoy living off the beaten path and require a dependable and continuous source of electricity, battery backup is critical. Living off-the-grid means having access to energy (supplied by solar batteries) when solar panels are not generating enough electricity.

Greater Energy Independence

A great way to reduce one’s dependence on the grid for their PV system’s backup is through solar battery storage. It is always reassuring to know that there is a day or two of electricity available that is exclusive of the grid.

Power Outage Recovery

In some instances, it is vital that power supply remains consistent and any unexpected power outages can be temporarily rectified with solar battery backup.

Avoiding Peak Time Utility Prices

People consuming energy from the local utility during peak usage times are charged a higher usage rate. Feeding off solar batteries during these periods can help negate these costly prices.

Protecting Your Solar Investment

Solar PV systems are often met with large upfront costs that consumers aim to repay with the saving they make by avoiding high utility rates. These rates are subject to change, however, and often to the disadvantage of the system owner. Battery backup is one method of ensuring a substantial upfront investment remains manageable.
