A home battery system stores surplus solar power for later use. The solar battery extends the use of a PV-system’s generated energy and will provide free, sustainable power even when the sun is not shining and the panels don’t produce energy.
Therefore, with a solar battery little to no electricity is fed into the grid while also avoiding having to buy expensive electricity from the grid later. Due to the increased self-consumption, the electricity costs decrease significantly. You will pay less per used kWh.
What is the benefit of a solar battery system?
Photovoltaic systems without a storage opportunity produce electricity to be used immediately. This is rarely effective, since solar energy is mainly generated during the day, when the power demand of most households is low. However, electricity demand increases significantly in the evening. With a battery system the excess solar power produced during the day can be used when it is actually needed. Without having to change your habits, you:
- permanently reduce your electricity bills
- personally contribute to a sustainable future
- optimize your self-consumption of your PV system’s energy
- declare your independence from large energy suppliers
