What is a solar battery?
A battery stores excess solar energy from your solar system in a battery for use later in the day when the sun goes down and your solar system is no longer generating electricity.
How does a solar battery work?
Solar batteries store the electricity produced by your solar system to be used at any time of the day or night, whether the sun is shining or not.
When the sun’s up, your solar system will automatically charge your battery. When the sun goes down and your solar panels stop producing electricity, your battery will automatically kick in and start powering your home.
And if you use all the electricity stored in your battery, your home will automatically start pulling energy from the electricity grid. So there’s no need to worry, the lights won’t go out!
How do I know if a solar battery is right for me?
If you want to make the most of solar system and consume more of the free electricity that it produces, then a solar battery is worth looking into. If you also value being less dependent on the electricity grid and having back-up electricity in the event of a blackout, then it makes even more sense.
