One of the most common questions we get is “what type of solar power batteries do you offer”, so we’ve put together this simple guide to help!
What is Battery Storage?
Before we get into what the best solar products on the market are, let’s review what battery storage actually is.
When you use solar panels to power your home, you likely generate more than you can use during the day. This means that a lot of the energy that is produced ends up being sent back to the grid where you end up buying it back when you need it (usually at night!).
The perfect solution to this problem is to have a solar power battery installed at your home. By doing so, you can store any excess energy that is not used during the day for use later at night. Solar power batteries also allow you to use solar power on days with low sunlight or during blackouts.
Not only will this help you make the most of your solar power system, but it will also reduce your total carbon footprint and help you save money.
Signs You Need a Solar Power Battery
So, how do you know if a solar power battery is the right investment for your home?
The first thing you need to consider is how much energy you use on an average day. Do you use more power while the sun is up, or does your energy consumption increase at night? You can determine this information by referring to your power bill which will detail peak usage throughout the day.
If your family is still growing, you likely need a system that can accommodate changing needs. In this case, a solar power battery may be the perfect solution!
Other considerations include outlining your budget and finding a provider that offers a lengthy warranty and the best solar products.
Tesla Powerwall 2
One of the best solar power batteries available is the Tesla Powerwall 2. This easy to install system charges during the day when the sun shines and can then power your home when electricity rates are higher or at night.
This option has an impressive storage capacity of 13.5 kWh and has a sleek, compact design. In other words, not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it is also very functional!
The Tesla Powerwall 2 can be used with any existing PV system and can accommodate changing needs with its ability to expand. When it comes to solar batteries in Brisbane, this is a great choice to reduce your energy footprint and maximise the benefits of your solar system.
LG Chem RESU10H
Another type of solar power battery that we offer is the LG Chem RESU10H. This solar battery storage system can effectively power your home at night or when the sun is not shining.
The LG Chem RESU10H uses lithium-ion technology to deliver high quality, high voltage battery storage. Since it is a DC-coupled solution, it offers high-efficiency solutions and is compatible with the SolarEdge inverter.
These solar power batteries have been used by large manufacturers like GM and Ford, but now these impressive solar batteries can be installed in your home.
They require very little maintenance, and their ease of installation makes them a great option. Similarly, they are a good value for the cost, can minimise dead space, and improve the efficiency of your solar power system.
