Adding battery storage to compliment your solar system is a great way to maximise your household’s use of your own, self-generated power.
We consume most of our power in the morning and in the evening, however solar panels generate most of their energy in the middle of the day, when the sun is shining. Adding a battery to compliment your rooftop solar will allow you to store your excess energy generated during the day, to power your home when the sun goes down. This in turn reduces the need to buy electricity in peak periods, saving you even more on your power bills.
A home battery system can also provide you and your family protection in a power outage by enabling you to power essential appliances in your home with your stored battery power in the case of a blackout*.
