Battery Storage - The Basics

Home battery storage systems are now affordable and easily connected to the grid reducing power bills or removing them totally. Batteries work by storing the excess electricity produced by the solar system. The higher your batteries capacity, the more electricity it can store! This stored energy can then be used at night or to power essential appliances during an outage.

In order to make the most of the batteries and solar system, it is best to shift your high energy loads to daylight hours when your solar system is producing enough energy to power the appliances. For example, dishwashers, clothes dryers, washing machines and air conditioners. This is because the systems are designed in such a way that they will use renewable energy first before taking power from the battery.

*Please note that internet connection is essential to allow for regular monitoring of the performance of your system*

On-Grid Battery Storage Systems

Home battery storage systems are now affordable and easily connected to the grid reducing your power bills or removing them totally. Batteries work by converting the DC energy being produced by your solar panels and storing it as AC power for later use. This means that any excess electricity produced by your panels will be stored within the battery.  The higher your batteries capacity, the more electricity it can store! This stored energy can then be used at night or to power essential appliances during an outage.

On Grid batteries allow you to store the excess electricity made by your solar system, but also draw from the electricity grid when your solar panels aren’t producing enough electricity. You will only send electricity back to the grid when you have filled your batteries capacity and draw it back when your battery is depleted.

In order to make the most of the batteries and solar system, it is best to shift your high energy loads to daylight hours when your solar system is producing enough energy to power the appliances. For example, dishwashers, clothes dryers, washing machines and air conditioners. This is because the systems are designed in such a way that they will use renewable energy first before taking power from the grid

Off - Grid Battery Storage Systems

Much like On-Grid Batteries, Off-Grid batteries are charged with the excess electricity produced by your solar system. However, Off-Grid systems supply power to properties that are not connected to (rural) or have chosen to disconnect from the public electricity grid.

Once full, the inverter will stop the solar system from recharging the batteries. The battery back will send power to household appliances when the solar system isn't producing electricity like during the night. When the battery is depleted, the inverter will automatically turn on the fuel generator. While the generator is running it will supply power to the house, allowing the battery to recharge.

Solar Battery Storage on the Sunshine Coast

Rely Less on the Grid with Solar Battery Storage on the Sunshine Coast

Thanks to Solar Battery Storage on the Sunshine Coast, you can power your house day and night without having to purchase electricity from providers that burn fossil fuels and contribute to the greenhouse effect. We supply and install renewable energy solutions that can either reduce or eliminate your need to purchase electricity from the grid. This will help minimise your running costs and combat climate change. Learn more about our Battery Storage Solutions and Solar Panel Systems by reading below.

Tips Regarding Home Battery Storage

Solar-powered battery storage systems are beneficial in many ways and they almost guarantee to help you save cash. Nevertheless, the following pointers will help you extract the maximum benefit from our solutions.

  • Choose a battery with a storage capacity that meets your needs: Provided you choose a product that can store enough energy generated by your solar panels to power your home, it’s possible to eliminate your reliance on electricity provided by the grid, helping you save money and protect the environment. Contact our professionals, and we’ll recommend the most suitable energy storage system for your requirements.
  • Avoid using your battery to power appliances throughout the day: Because our storage batteries usually work in tandem with a residential solar system, you’re better off only using your battery to power your home during the night. Throughout the day, your solar panels should be capable of powering your home appliances as well as charge your battery.
  • Consult with our seasoned professionals: The most straightforward way to find out how to minimise your running costs using solar panels and storage batteries is to book an appointmentwith our consultants. We’re happy to visit your home on the Sunshine Coast to assess your unique needs.
