There has been a lot of talk in the solar community recently about the next step in the solar revolution: Home Battery Energy Storage. But the question is fairly pondered; is battery storage worth it?
First, let’s explore what solar storage is like without the solar battery.
Currently, solar panels capture energy from the sun and convert it into DC power, leading into the inverter that’s key function is to “invert” the direct current output into alternating currents. The current can then be used to power your home and any excess generated electricity left unused will be fed back into the grid.
You will receive a rebate for this in the form of feed-in tariffs, although these tariffs differ from state to state. The limitation with solar is that it works only during daytime hours, meaning that at night time you consume electricity from the grid.
In contrast, the fully integrated, high-tech sonnenBatterie allows you to retain any excess clean energy your solar system has generated for use at any time.
Not only does the sonnenBatterie retain excess energy from your roof for later use, it has the capacity to automatically adjust your household’s energy usage.
This means that the power you generate can be used during the times when you need it most, reducing your dependence on traditional energy sources.
Just like your solar panels are a long term investment, so too is battery storage, allowing you to improve your capacity to save money on electricity bills every month for many years to come.
