Solar batteries allow you to use more of the energy being generated by your solar panel system. Adding a solar panel battery storage system to your solar panels will reduce further your reliance on energy suppliers, making even greater energy savings.

Solar batteries allow you to continue powering your home with renewable solar energy at night when your solar panel system is not able to generate energy. Solar PV panels convert solar energy into usable electricity and are often producing more electricity than can be used. Without solar battery storage, this excess is diverted to the National Grid. This means that you miss out on using the energy yourself and will have to rely on energy suppliers when the sun has gone down.
How do Batteries for Solar Panels Work?
Solar panels systems are roof or exterior wall mounted where they are exposed to the most sunlight. Each solar PV panel contains solar cells which convert the sun’s energy into DC electricity. This DC electricity is then converted to AC electricity by an inverter, with the resultant power being made available to power your home.
The electricity that you do not use is delivered back to the National Grid for redistribution. This means that you can only use solar energy generated from your system during daylight hours. Installing solar panel battery storage solves this problem by storing some of the electric you have generated.
Solar Panel Batteries
Via an inverter, solar batteries work by converting the DC energy being produced by your solar panel system and storing it as AC power for later use. The higher your solar battery capacity, the more solar energy it will store.
Solar Battery Storage
Installing a solar battery as part of your solar panel system allows you to store excess solar electricity at your home instead of sending it back to the grid. If your solar panel system produces more electricity than you need, the excess energy is diverted to charging the battery. Then, when your solar panels are not producing electricity, you use the energy stored in the battery. Electricity is only sent back to the grid when the solar battery is fully charged, and electricity from the grid is only drawn down when the battery is drained.
