How does a 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’s shining or not. This means you can significantly reduce your electricity bill.


How does it work?

You can get a battery installed at the same time as your solar panels or, if you’ve already got panels on your roof, you can add a battery to your existing system.

Just like panels, there’s an application process to get the battery installed, but once it’s in, you don’t need to do anything. The battery just works!

At its simplest, 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!
