Why should I want a solar battery?

Solar batteries, also known as solar energy storage, help solar households maximise the value they’re getting from their solar.

The key is that batteries allow you to use your solar at any time of the day or night so you can buy less electricity from the grid. This means you can significantly reduce, or even eliminate, your electricity bill.


Are batteries complicated?

Batteries couldn’t be easier! There’s an application process to get the battery installed (just like when you installed your solar) but once installed, you don’t need to do anything. The battery just works!

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.

So what happens when you’ve used all of the electricity stored in the battery? Don’t worry, your lights won’t go out! Your house will automatically switch to grid electricity when your battery is drained.

So why don’t more households have a solar battery?

Batteries are still pretty expensive, which means they’re not financially viable for most households… yet.

Like solar ten years ago, the cost of solar storage is decreasing and rebates are being introduced to help encourage the uptake of batteries. In fact the Victorian Solar Battery Rebate is due to begin on 1 July, 2019 and will cover up to half the value of a solar battery install up to the value of $4838.

It won’t be long before batteries become more affordable and more widespread throughout the community.
