With new advancements and developments every day in energy storage technology, sustainable living with an eco-friendly future can be achieved with solar batteries.

The benefits of renewable solar-plus-battery technology for your home and your wallet

But what exactly can a battery do for your home or business?

Ensures your energy is completely utilised on your home

To put it lightly, solar panels work by converting energy gained from the sun into electricity to power your home. But, any excess energy generated from the panels is diverted back into the energy grid to be sent across to homes in need. Without a battery, you will be gaining a reimbursement from the Government for using your hard earned energy, which is fine, but with the addition of a battery you are able to store your energy in times when you’re using low amounts of electricity. Then during the night when your panels aren’t generating solar energy from the sun, you can re-harness that stored energy to power your home for the entire night, resulting in an industry leading, sustainable energy home.

Eliminates reliance on electricity from the power grid

By investing in battery storage solutions, you are taking a great leap forward to becoming a self-sufficient property owner and independent of the energy grid. With the current nature of rising energy bills nationwide, becoming a self-sufficient home is your only option to save money and stick it to the man. What’s better is even while you are powering your home day and night with your own private energy source, you will still be gaining Government incentives for going solar.  

Offsets increased cost of power during peak times

By storing your energy to be utilised at night, you will be completely off-setting peak hours of energy consumption. As energy prices are higher during the day, you will be utilising your stored energy at night when prices are low, so in times where you are having an night-long party with the lights on until the sun rises, your energy consumption if you do need to borrow from the grid will be very minimal.

Maintains your household electricity in times of blackouts  

Depending on your system, the energy harnessed by your solar PV panels and stored in your battery has the ability to ensure you don’t have to bring out the candles and torches to light your home. The backup energy you have stored in your battery technology can detect when a power outage occurs and keep your home running until the energy companies fix the power lines… again.
