Got solar? Make the next step with a solar battery!
You’ve made the smart decision to install solar panels at your house, why not make the next smart decision by adding a solar battery?
But why should you get a solar battery, what exactly is involved and what do you need to do before and after its installed? Well, don’t stop reading! We’ve got the answers.
Why should you get a solar battery?
There are a number of reasons why Australians are turning to solar battery setups, but a leading factor is the ability to gain control over your power bills through self-consumption of solar power.
During the day your solar panels soak up the sun, generating ‘free’ electricity that you can use to power your home. Needless to say, using your power-hungry appliances when your panels are generating electricity will reduce your bill. But if you’re not home during the day, instead of selling this power you can store it for when your household needs it.
By adding a solar battery the energy your solar setup produces can be stored.Instead of sending all the energy your solar panels are generating during the day back to the electricity grid, with a solar battery you can store the energy your solar panels generate for use at night.
So, you’re getting on board? Awesome! Your hip pocket will thank you.
If you’re actively considering battery storage for your own house, we’ve compiled a list of 6 things that will put you well on your way towards making the right decision.
