A home battery can store surplus energy generated from rooftop photovoltaic panels for use when needed. When the sun has set, energy demand is high, or there is a black-out, you can use the energy stored in your home battery to meet your energy needs at no extra cost. In addition, a home battery helps you pursue the goal of energy self-consumption and ultimately energy independence.

Why Solar + Storage makes sense?

Customize use case

Choose between back-up the entire home energy consumption or use storage to reduce electricity use from the grid during peak hours

Excess solar energy stored in batteries

Solar energy produced during the day shall be used to offset the energy use in the evening when your time of use energy prices are high

Reduce reliance on grid

Extreme weather conditions are forcing utilities to establish planned and unplanned power outages



How batteries for solar panels work?

Batteries are typically used for battery backup in residential solar. So this helps to have a back up when the power goes out, adding a battery to your project may be an option to consider. You could add a battery system at initial install or you could add it to the existing solar project you already have. The advantage is your panels are producing DC current, the batteries are DC as well so they are compatible with each other.

How long do solar batteries last?

Want to continue to have power while your neighbor is experiencing power outage? Installing a solar battery with your solar project is exactly what you need. As you make use of the batteries and some external factors may affect the lifespan of the batteries. The batteries must be replaced at least once in the lifespan of the solar system of 25 to 30 years. Some of the factors that the lifespan of the batteries depend on are:

  • Usage
  • Maintenance
  • Warranty
  • Temperature
