SOLAR BATTERY

Energy, in all conditions!

A home battery system stores surplus solar power for later use. The solar battery extends the use of a PV-system’s generated energy and will provide free, sustainable power even when the sun is not shining and the panels don’t produce energy.
WORKING OF SOLAR PANEL

How it works

Solar systems without storage produce electricity to be used immediately. This is rarely effective, since solar energy is mainly generated during the day, when the power demand of most households is low. With a battery system the excess solar power produced during the day can be used when it is actually needed. Without having to change your habits, you:

  • permanently reduce your electricity bills
  • personally contribute to a sustainable future
  • optimise your self-consumption of your PV system’s energy
  • declare your independence from large energy suppliers

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Lead or lithium-ion

Battery storage systems for residential use are equipped either with lead-acid, lead-gel, or lithium-ion batteries.
Lead-acid batteries were used mostly in the past, amongst other things, as car batteries. Given their considerable advantages, lithium-ion batteries are becoming increasingly accepted over lead-acid batteries. They have come to be regarded as the standard in photovoltaics in recent years.

Storage capacity

The size or capacity of the storage system should be appropriate to meet residential consumption demand. In principle, the storage system should be large enough to supply a household with solar power all through the night. A battery capacity of 4 to 8 kWh is usually sufficient for an average four-person home consuming around 4,500 kilowatt-hours (kWh) annually. A poorly calculated battery system usually results in unnecessary extra costs. If the storage system is too small, not enough energy can be stored to cover the needs. The purchase of additional power from the grid becomes necessary. If the storage system is too large on the other hand, unneeded power is permanently stored, reducing the battery’s service life and not saving you any cost.

Verdict

With a battery storage system, you can use the solar power from your system when you really need it and permanently lower your electricity bills. Sophisticated technology, a long service life, and recently reduced prices make PV storage systems a worthwhile investment – for both new and existing solar systems.

Financing option available!

A well financed, properly sized solar system can save you more money every month than it costs you to finance. Financing is a great solution that will help you save money immediately, if you don’t want to spend the cash upfront.
