What is a solar battery?

A solar battery is a simple battery that reserves solar energy that will be generated by solar panels system. Basically, it is your storage reservoir that stores access energy that is created by solar panels. In short, solar batteries can store DC (Direct Current) energy generated from the solar panel system. This energy can be used when the sun is not out, in cloudy days and at night.

However, solar batteries are one of the most expensive components of a solar power system, so it’s important that you need to understand which battery is best for your home and business before spending money.

  • Lead acid Batteries (Flooded, AGM & Gel)
  • Lithium-ion Batteries
  • Flow Batteries
  • Sodium Nickle Chloride Batteries

Why use Solar Battery?

Save on Electricity bill: By storing the access energy during that your solar panels generate and you can use this energy at cloudy day, night, or when energy consumption is higher. At that time you don’t need to buy electricity from supplier

Backup Power Supply: If there is a power cut or your grid goes down you can use your stored electricity. But not all the solar batteries will able to use your solar-generated electricity when grid goes down. So make sure before buying solar batteries which work during power cut.

How Does a Solar Panel Battery Works

  • Solar Panels convert solar energy to DC energy (Direct Current). This energy is used to power your home. If your home doesn’t need, it sent to your solar batteries.
  • A solar inverter converts the Direct current to Alternating Current.
  • Start using your battery store electricity at night, cloudy days, and during a blackout.

Advantages of home and commercial battery systems

  • Reduce cost – Save money and get credits on your electricity bills by using less energy from the grid
  • Reduce emissions – Clean and Green Electricity 24*7 and Reduce pollution from coal/gas power generators
  • Be blackout safe – Have power available during a night, emergency or sun goes down
  • Become energy independent – Generate, store and use your own solar power energy

Disadvantages of home & commercial battery systems

  • Higher upfront cost – Total system cost of energy storage is quite higher
  • Complexity – Requires a hybrid inverter and monitoring equipment
  • Increase Maintenance- It increases maintenance cost
