How to Choose a Battery System

Battery storage allows you to use your solar power energy at night or when the sun isn’t shining as well as during high sunlight hours.

If you haven’t got a battery then your solar power system generates a lot of energy which can only be used when the sun is shining. Batteries allow you to store that energy to power your home or business constantly.

With a battery storage system, excess electricity created during the daytime can be used to charge your batteries. This means in the later afternoon, early morning and at night time, you can use energy stored in your batteries to power your electricity instead of paying for electricity from the grid.

Wondering if you should install batteries now?

Home battery storage has improved hugely in recent years and is starting to gain momentum in homes around the Sunshine Coast.

Battery technology has proven itself on the international market and well-known brands such as Tesla and LG Chem have created customer confidence.

However, the price of battery storage is still high compared to the cost of solar panels and inverters, so deciding if you should install batteries for your home or business will take some careful consideration.

Things to consider when deciding whether to invest in battery installation

There are many considerations when it comes to choosing the right battery system such as:

  • How much do batteries cost?
  • How much available solar energy do you have to charge the batteries?
  • How long will the batteries last?
  • How much money will you save by installing batteries?

Finding the right system for your needs will take some careful design work.

Benefits of being battery-ready

Battery-ready solar power systems are designed and installed with the idea of adding batteries at a later date. Because the price of solar panels and inverters is so reasonable these days it’s smart to make the most of any available Government subsidies on solar panels and start reducing your electricity bill as soon as possible.

Currently, battery systems are still a considerable investment. However, as their price goes down and the cost of electricity rises, we expect batteries to become a smart investment for home and business owners in the coming years.

In the future, battery systems will make perfect financial sense. Until then, a well-designed battery-ready system is the best way to make immediate savings.
