How Solar Batteries work?

Solar Batteries work by converting the DC energy being produced by your Solar Panels and storing it as AC power for later use. When you install a solar battery as part of your solar panel system, you are able to store excess solar electricity at your home instead of sending it back to the grid.

During the day:

  • The Solar PV system generates solar electricity.
  • The Battery Storage System will check if all the generation is being used to power your lights and appliances.
  • If you’re not using all the electricity that the Solar PV System is generating, then the system will ensure that any surplus energy is used to charge the battery.
  • Once the Battery is fully charged, if there is still more solar electricity being generated, this will be exported to the grid.

In the evening or at time of low solar generation:

  • The Solar PV Panels have a reduced output.
  • The Battery System can discharge the stored electricity, providing you with renewable-generated electricity at no additional cost.
  • Once the battery is discharged, if you need to use more electricity, you buy it from your electricity supplier.

Benefits of investing in Solar Batteries

Solar Batteries are designed to capture the surplus energy usually exported to the grid, storing it for use later in the day to save you from buying in electricity when the sun isn’t shining. They can be easily added to an existing PV system with minimal disruption.

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Battery systems start from as little as £1,995 + VAT.

The answer depends on a number of factors:

  1. The size of your existing Solar PV System and how much electric you generate.
  2. How much of the generated electricity you export back to the grid throughout the day.
  3. The size of the Battery system.

The Batteries have an approximate lifespan of 6,000 cycles which equates to 10-15 years.

Yes, we can simply swap the old battery with a new battery with minimal disruption.

Yes, the Battery System can be easily retrofitted onto exiting systems without any disruption to the Solar PV Generation.
Yes, the stored energy can be used to provide electricity to a whole range of appliances.
