Understanding Solar Batteries - What To Know Before You Buy A Solar Battery

Using your stored energy is often better for you financially than selling it back to the grid. Save even more money with a lithium-ion battery that stores your electricity in the day, so you can use it at night.

Storing your daily energy is ideal for people who are not around as much during the day. When you get home in the evening you use the solar power you generated that day.

Are solar batteries really worth it?

Absolutely. In a blackout or power cut, you’ll be the only house on the street with all the modern conveniences like hot water and a working freezer.

Another reason home batteries could be worth it for you is if you’re not always home during the day. When you’re not using the energy being created, you can save it for later when the sun isn’t shining.

Using your battery storage system is often better for you financially than selling it back to the grid. The costs of buying back energy during peak times often negates the profits you make selling it during the day.

Good to know

Feel confident about your decision to have a Solar Battery installed.
Below you’ll find our most frequently answered questions

Absolutely. Not every household is at home during the daytime and unfortunately not all energy tariffs are guaranteed to work well with solar storage. Our solar specialists can discuss which tariffs work best in line with your requirements and usage, ensuring you get the most out of your stored energy. Why not speak to us today and find out how you can get the most out of your battery stored power?

Solar batteries store electricity produced by your solar panels so you can use that energy later (for example, when the sun has gone down). So when you install a battery as part of your system, you can store the excess energy with a solar charged battery pack at your home, rather than sending it back to the grid. So you’re not hiking up your energy bills at night time using lights or the tele. And because they store energy at your home, you’ve got short-term backup power if there’s ever a blackout.

Batteries have a mini computer built inside them which can be updated like an iphone can be when the latest software comes out. As much as batteries are hardware, they built their tech around software. Meaning it will update your solar batteries to current standards when they get older.

"If the technology changes with panels and I get new ones, will my battery still work? Or do I have to have a certain type of system?"

Regardless of what system you have, an AC battery will be able to connect with any inverter. This
means it’ll work with any solar panels.

95% of solar batteries in 2022 can go inside and outside, so they can be easily placed next to your inverter, your garage, or if you really want to, in your living room. They’re usually no bigger than a computer modem and can be easily hidden away!

You absolutely have the option to do that. You bought the solar inverter and battery system, so you own the system. However, a solar and battery system can add up to 3% to your property value, so you can choose to make the money on the house sale and use it to buy a new solar system and battery for your new home.

We only use the best solar battery specifications, which means all of our solar battery packs all come with surge protection, so during a storm or power outage the solar powered battery pack will still work. And because most of them have a healthy supply of backup power, your essentials like your fridge and wifi will still work. And yes, your neighbours will be extremely jealous when this happens.

This depends on what solar panel and battery you buy, and of course, the company you buy it through. Most batteries have a warranty of 10 years, and most good solar battery for house manufacturers will let you extend that to over 20.

People don’t tend to spend every minute at home, and you’re very unlikely to use all the power the system generates.

Once your solar system and battery are hooked up, you'll will be able to remotely charge your solar pv battery or discharge energy from it back into the grid. For example, we can do this during times of high demand so you’re getting paid more money for the energy you’re selling back to the grid!

When you sell energy back to the grid from your solar panel battery system, it builds up as a credit on your bill which, if you are in credit on your total bill - you can withdraw that money to your bank account. It’s no different to your energy retailer charging you. You’re essentially charging them for energy when normally they charge you.

A general solar panel with battery for home only takes around 2 hours to install, and then you’ll be up and running with more solar panel for yourself.

If you're looking to add a battery to your solar system, keep in mind batteries aren't one-size-fits-all. Talk to a solar specialist about the right voltage and specifications of your existing solar panel system to find the best home solar battery for you.
