Solar Batteries – How do they work?

Solar batteries store excess electricity generated by the solar panels and make them available for later use. Self-generated power saves $$$ as you are using your own supply rather than from the grid that charges you. In Melbourne, solar batteries generate self-power on cloudy days or nighttime. Solar battery installation is rising in popularity because of recent price drops in lithium-ion batteries and design improvements for home installation. A solar system needs to be at least 5kW to generate enough power to charge the battery.

Solar batteries mean you will not use as much electricity from a retailer and therefore save more on your electricity bills. They can power your home at night not just during the day, making the most of your solar system. A battery stores the surplus energy instead of feeding it back into the grid. So you may not have a feed-in tariff applied to your bills but you save by not using the grid but your battery’s surplus energy first. And the trade-off by forfeiting feed-in tariffs is actually saving more money by allowing you to use your solar-generated energy 24 hours a day.

Can I add a Battery to my Existing Solar System?

Yes – if you already have solar panels installed we can add a solar storage battery to your system. Retrofitted solar batteries must be installed by a licensed electrician. They are typically AC coupled connecting directly to the 240V AC in the switchboard using an AC battery inverter. We can discuss adding extra panels and increasing your kW to be able to store more surplus energy. If your system is less than 5 kW we recommended upgrading to at least that size.
