Solar PV battery storage installers
You can make a huge step towards electrical energy independence using solar panel storage batteries. Adding battery storage minimises your reliance on the national electricity grid, and can reduce your electricity bills.
However, battery storage systems are not suitable for everyone so get in touch to find out if it is right for you.
What is solar panel battery storage?
Solar panel battery storage allows you to capture electricity from your solar panels and store it for use at another time. For example, you could use the electricity generated by your solar panels during the day at night.
It is a fairly new technology which is worth considering if you would like to use the electricity you generate at home outside daylight hours.
Things to consider with a home-energy storage system
Do I have to have solar panels to install a battery?
No, you can use electricity from the national grid to charge your battery – much like charging a mobile phone. If you have an off-peak electrical tariff you can cut costs by charging the battery when the price is lower and using it instead of higher price electricity from the grid during peak periods.
Economy 7 and Economy 10 are types of traditional time-of-use tariffs, usually linked to battery storage systems.
Advantages of solar panel battery storage
- Helps you use more of the electricity you generate
- Some firms pay you for allowing your battery to be used to store excess grid electricity
- Could enable you to take advantage of cheap-rate electricity
- Require little maintenance
