Solar battery storage is a hot topic for homeowners considering solar power for their homes.
Whilst the allure to be completely independent from the power grid may be strong, the higher initial costs and expertise required to maintain this equipment is a hindrance to most ordinary Australian homeowners.
In this FAQ we discuss the pros and cons of having a solar battery system.
A solar panel battery is great because essentially it allows you to store the energy generated from your solar power system for use later on at a time when it’s more convenient for you.
A solar battery system is typically most beneficial at night, during low sunlight days and to add extra power at times of high demand.
Ideal for someone who wants to live completely off the grid and be totally independent from the power suppliers.
In practice a solar power battery is mostly used in completely off grid applications and by solar power enthusiasts.
In many cases a completely off-grid system may require you to also have a back up generator, wind turbine and other alternative energy sources to ensure that you have access to sufficient power throughout the year.
The solar battery cost basically increases the overall cost of your solar power system considerably which means that it will take longer for you to get a return on your investment.
SunEnergy empowers you to go solar without the high upfront cost
The SunEnergy mission is to empower Australian homeowners to go solar and start saving from day one.
We call this ‘Pay As You Save’ and for this reason our solar systems are designed to give you the best performance without the need for solar battery storage.
What this means is that during the day, solar power is supplying your domestic appliances in your home.
The electricity that doesn’t get used is then sold back to the grid, which you then receive back as ‘credits’.
These ‘credits’ are then used to offset the power of your home during the evening.
For most Australian homeowners, this is the best solution – low upfront costs and a quicker return on investment which means that you can start saving from day one.
