Thanks to technology improvements, many australian households are opting to install battery storage to new and existing solar energy systems. Battery storage allows homeowners to be self sufficient with their energy and have back-up power in the event of blackouts.
Home battery storage makes it possible to store the suns energy and use it at night. battery storage can save money by allowing you to use your solar 24 hours a day. When paying high rates to import eclectricity but recieving a low return for exporting, storing the suns energy for night time use makes sense. You get the most of your solar energy to maximise your savings.
If you are thinking of switching to solar and reducing your dependency on the traditional power companies, it is important to think ahead if you wish to add battery storage in the future. A battery-ready solar panel system of suitable size is a good option to consider. Not all solar power systems will be easily upgradeable so it is important to spend your money wisely when purchasing your solar energy system.
For those looking to install solar – and perhaps even battery storage, as well – for the first time, the best place to start is by monitoring your home energy usage. How much do you use, and when do you use it? As with solar, what’s most important for consumers is to make sure you get the right battery for your home, your solar system and your needs.
