Do I Need a Solar Battery? And How Do They Work?

There is a lot of buzz going around at the moment about solar batteries in South Australia. At Sun Energy, we are passionate about the positives that these additions can provide, and offer solar batteries with all of our high-quality solar systems. If you are in the market for a new system, and the term ‘solar batteries’ keeps coming up, it is important to develop an understanding of what they are, and why you might need one.

For those looking to further their commitment, solar batteries are a fantastic solution that we believe, will only become more popular as time goes one.

What is a solar battery?

First of all, it’s crucial to understand exactly what a solar battery is, and how it works. Solar batteries are an additional component of a system that are charged from the sun’s energy. Throughout the day in Australian, it is not uncommon for excess power to be produced (as not much power is being used within homes). With solar batteries, the excess power doesn’t go back to the grid; it charges the battery. These batteries can then be used when the sun is down to power appliances around the home.

Depending on the size of your solar battery system, and the hours when your property most uses power, there are different levels of success that can be seen with this application. Commonly, you will need at least a 5kw system to generate enough power to charge the batteries. However, we believe that this is a medium size system regardless.

Why should I get a solar battery system?

An investment in solar batteries can further your savings. Ultimately, a solar battery system will allow you to go longer without having to use the grid’s power, further decreasing your electricity bills. Whether your motivation is financial or environmental, a solar battery system is favourable.

This application does not have to break the bank. With Sun Energy, we include solar battery systems with all of our applications, and therefore they are available with the solar finance options we offer our clients. This means that you can benefit from a battery system before you have to dig into your pockets. With the battery installation, you will be able to further your savings, making the incremental payments on the system less exorbitant.
