A home battery storage system will enable you to store the electricity produced by your solar system that is not used immediately, rather than exporting it back to the mains grid. This gives you greater energy independence and flexibility, as you still have access to cheap, sustainable energy when there is no sunlight, there are mains outages, and during peak energy consumption periods.
At Best Solar & Batteries, we supply and install solar batteries with a range of different capacities to suit your specific home energy needs. Get in touch with our team of Adelaide solar experts and we’ll be happy to discuss your requirements in more detail to determine the size and type of home battery that will best meet your requirements.
Many people who have had solar panels installed choose to feed back to the grid energy they produce but do not use, so that they can take advantage of the feed-in tariff offered by their electricity retailer.
An alternative approach is to install a home battery. Excess, unused energy is then able to be stored and used at another time when solar panels are not able to produce electricity, such as at night or when the sun isn’t shining. A battery also means that you have access to electricity when there is a mains power outage.
A solar battery can also eliminate the need to draw power from the mains at the most expensive peak times, which can mean that any power bills you do receive will be significantly reduced (with the ultimate aim being to pay nothing at all for your household electricity).
The amount of energy able to be stored by a home battery system will depend on the size and configuration of your home solar system. Our experienced team of solar experts can guide you through the process, helping homeowners to select a home battery (and solar panels, if they aren’t already installed), that will meet the energy needs of you and your family.
If you already have solar panels installed on your home, it is generally a relatively straightforward process to add a battery storage system, although in some cases it may be necessary to add some additional panels in order to get the maximum benefit from your storage system.
For many people who install a home battery and solar power in Adelaide, one of the most significant benefits is that you are to a large extent insulated against the seemingly endless, steep rises in electricity bills most households have to endure.
You also have greater energy independence, in that you are not subject to blackouts in the main electricity grid, as well as knowing that you are using a green, clean, sustainable form of energy in your home.
The size and capacity of the solar system and battery storage you need to install will be determined by a number of factors. The amount of energy you consume on average each day, along with the amount used at the most expensive peak times, will influence the size and type of system you require.
The size, angle, shading and orientation of your roof will also affect how many solar panels are able to be installed, which will in turn impact on the output.
Our experienced team of solar experts will take all these factors into account when designing a home battery storage system.
In order to do this, we will undertake a site inspection so we can see the layout and configuration of the roof, and potential locations for a home battery, as well as helping us to get a better understanding of your home energy use.
This will then enable us to produce a detailed solar quote that, in addition to detailing the make and model of home battery we recommend, will also (if required) include a proposed layout and configuration for having solar panels installed on your roof.
Our quote will also give you an estimate of the return on investment (ROI) you can expect when installing a home battery, as well as the payback period required in order to recoup the initial outlay.
We are committed to offering our clients value for money and first rate service at every stage of the process.
This is why we only supply and install home batteries from leading manufacturers, such as Tesla, LG, Goodwe, Alpha, and Sungrow.
In this way, we can be confident that the storage systems we install in Adelaide households are suitable for Australian conditions, offer low maintenance, long operating life, and deliver sufficient output to meet your energy needs while keeping power bills to a minimum.
We specialise in designing and installing home solar power systems for South Australians, and aim to make the process as straightforward as possible.
With high electricity prices impacting enterprises of all sizes, companies are always looking for ways they can cut costs.
Home battery storage systems are designed to store excess electricity produced by your solar panels so that rather than exporting it back to the grid, it can be used during peak power consumption periods, during a power cut, or when there is no sunlight.
Batteries are available in a range of different capacities, and our in-house team can help you choose a battery set up to meet your storage needs. This will provide greater independence while significantly reducing your power bills.
