✔ Professional installation
✔ Store-up electricity
✔ Works with your Solar PV
Battery storage solutions are the perfect partnership for the solar panels on your roof. Why? They store any excess energy so you can use it at a later date or time - it doesn’t expire!
If you produce your own renewable energy, battery storage solutions enable you to make more use of it - taking your home off-grid if you want to run on just your own electricity, or sending it to your heat pump should you like to generate heat from your pre-generated power.
Think of a battery storage solution as just another way into running a cleaner, greener, more sustainable household. The price of a battery storage solution depends on your current energy needs and how much power is generated through your solar panel system.
When your solar panels are generating electricity, excess energy is either sent back out to the grid or drawn in through a wired connection. You can keep up to 85% of your own generation! When morning comes, during peak hours:
During night hours and daytime when demand exceeds solar production:
Note: If your energy provider offers these type of products – then they can easily sync themselves to purchase power only when prices dip (typically off-peak)
A battery storage system that you own is the answer to greater energy independence, reduced costs and in the event of a power cut, the battery storage system will provide power to your home.
Instead of exporting excess energy back to the grid, the energy will be stored which can then be used in the evening for FREE!
The benefits a household will receive from a battery storage solution will depend on a number of factors including your location, the size of your solar PV system and your energy plan.
As mentioned, a battery storage solution can store excess solar-generated energy from a solar system, or energy sourced from the grid, for use at a later time. The stored energy can be used for FREE instead of importing electricity from the grid, so depending on your electricity tariff, you may be able to take advantage of using your battery when prices are at their highest.
Our rechargeable batteries are guaranteed to go for at least 4,000 cycles; if you do a full discharge every day, then this is 10.95 years! But it would be uncommon for an average household to perform a complete discharge each day due to shorter days during the winter and longer hours of daylight during the summer – so most people will typically only use their battery 260 times annually (due to variable load demands).
This means that they’re expected lifespan could range from 15-25 years depending on how many batteries you buy!
This is possible, yes. However, it would be something our team of engineers would have to review for you – we’d need to determine how much energy you produce, how much would be saved as excess and how often you would use your battery storage then freeing up space for more reserve power.
No. You can simply monitor the capacity of your battery storage solution using the app or web link provided from the manufacturer. Don’t worry – whatever we set you up with, we’ll walk you through how it all works before leaving your property.
YES! This is what makes battery storage solutions so popular. Whether its in a power cut, your own choice to go off-grid for a few hours, or the blackouts the Government are proposing for Winter 22/23, provided there is sufficient back-up, your battery storage solution will kick in to power your home.
Yes, by storing solar energy (which is already a renewable energy source) and using it in the evening, you are offsetting the carbon footprint of your home – and can increase your homes overall EPC rating.
