What is a solar battery storage system?
A solar battery storage system is a type of specialised battery that is used in conjunction with a solar panel installation to store excess energy generated by your solar panels during the day. This energy can then be used in the evening when your households energy demands are higher. Adding a solar battery storage system to your solar PV panels can mean some significant savings on your energy bills and will reduce your reliance on the national grid. Solar batteries come in a variety of sizes and capacities. They are available with a variety of additional technologies with some even allowing you to power your home through a power cut. An experienced solar power electrician will be able to advise you on which is most suitable for your needs.
