Residential Solar Batteries
In times of unpredictability, solar battery storage can be the one-stop solution to your home’s energy needs!
What is Solar Battery Storage?
If you’re already interested in solar, chances are you’re a fan of its energy-saving properties. Sometimes, however, you may find that your solar panels create more energy than you can actually use. This is especially the case in Florida, where the sun never seems to set.
So, where does all this extra energy go? Depending upon how you have your solar panel system set up, the excess energy might just return to the power grid at large, where your utility company may issue you energy credits to compensate you for the power you’ve returned to them. In a similar vein, if your panels aren’t capable of producing energy for your home to sustainably run off of, you might need to rely on the grid to draw power from – at a cost, of course.
How does Solar Battery Storage help?
Solar batteries add a new element to the mix. With a solar battery storage system in place, your excess energy won’t return to the grid, but to the battery system you’ve set up. Essentially, these batteries allow you to store the energy for future use.
Now, some important things to keep in mind about your solar panels are that they create the most energy during the day, but they consume more energy at night. Solar battery storage systems give you the option to charge your battery during peak daylight hours while the sun is out then switch to battery power at night to make the most of your home’s renewable energy system.
