THE ABILITY TO STORE SOLAR IS HERE!
There is a lot of interest in home battery storage systems. There is no doubt that battery technology is the way of the future as we are all looking for ways to save money and stress when it comes to household bills.
An iinergy complete home energy solution will help you maximise the return on you solar system and reduce your energy bills.
OPTIMISING SOLAR POWER
When your solar panels produce more electricity than you use in your home, the excess is stored in the battery pack instead of being sent back to the grid. As the sun goers down and yoursolar panel production decreases, you draw on the electricity that you stored throughout the day. This increases self consumption of solar energy and improves the return from a solar power system.
BENEFITS OF A BATTERY STORAGE SYSTEM
Together with rooftop solar system, battery storage presents a huge opportunity for Australian homes to use a larger percentage of the solar power they generate at home and minimise the need to purchase expensive electricity from the grid. Advantages of home battery storage include:
Since many homes use the bulk of their energy at night, a battery storage system will power the house after the sun goes down reducing your dependency on the electricity from the grid.
A battery storage system is capable of providing back up power to your home in the event of a blackout. Whether an outage is caused by a storm or network failure, it is possible to install your home battery storage system in a way that can provide you with backup power.
Apart from saving you money, battery storage is also good for the environment because it uses solar energy. Also, with the upfront cost for solar systems dipping over time, more people will be encouraged to adopt sustainable energy solutions.
