Quality Matters

Buying a solar storage system is more complex than just buying solar alone.

When you add a battery, the solar energy that you do not use during the day is used to charge the battery.

This energy can be used at night or early morning when you need it.

Benefits of Batteries

– Use your solar energy at a time that suits you.

– Reduce power consumption during peak periods.

– Save money by charging your battery from the grid at off peak rates.

– Become more self-sufficient and reduce the effect power price changes have on your bill.

– Some batteries can provide backup if there is a power outage.

– With the right software, you can make money by selling power back to the grid.

Type of Battery Storage System

There are two types of Battery Storage Systems available:

The AC coupled battery storage system connects to the AC side of the inverter.

This allows the solar battery to store power from both the solar panels as well as the grid.

1. Solar panels capture energy from the sun and converts it into Direct Current (DC) electricity.

2. The DC electricity for the solar panels is transferred to the PV Inverter

3. The PV Inverter monitors the power consumption of the home

4. Power can be drawn from the grid and excess power can be sold back to the grid

5. The Battery inverter monitors the excess power being produced

6. Excess power is supplied to the Battery from the Battery Inverter

– Direct current (DC) electricity is the power that solar panels produce.

– Alternating current (AC) electricity is the power that is supplied by the grid and most household devices use.

– To enable the household devices to use solar power, the DC electricity has to be converted into AC electricity.

– An inverter transforms the electricity from DC to AC.

The DC coupled storage system connects directly to the solar panel output.

As a general rule, this allows the storage system to store power from the solar system but not from the grid.

1. Solar panels capture energy from the sun and converts it into Direct Current (DC) electricity

2. The DC electricity for the solar panels is transferred to the Inverter

3. The Inverter monitors the power consumption of the home

4. Power can be drawn from the grid and excess power can be sold back to the grid

5. Excess power is supplied to the Battery from the Inverter

– Direct current (DC) electricity is the power that solar panels produce.

– Alternating current (AC) electricity is the power that is supplied by the grid and most household devices use.

– To enable the household devices to use solar power, the DC electricity has to be converted into AC electricity.

– An inverter transforms the electricity from DC to AC.

Before you consider Battery Storage, we recommend that you understand the following:

1. Spend some time calculating your excess solar energy per day

2. Is this energy excess or just enough for the evening peak

3. Calculate your sunlight hours and overnight energy usage

4. Size your solar battery so that the battery can be fully charged during the day, and discharged at night

5. Make sure the battery software lets you control the system and check its performance

6. Check the watery refers to years, cycles and other limitations
