Solar batteries are a great way to store the energy that your solar panels generate, so you can use it even when the sun isn't shining. This can be especially helpful during power outages, or when your local utility company is charging peak rates.
Here are some of the benefits of adding a battery to your solar project:
Backup power during outages: If you have a battery, you can still have power during a power outage. This can be a lifesaver if you have medical devices that need electricity, or if you have young children or pets.
Reduced reliance on the grid: If you have a battery, you can reduce your reliance on the grid. This can save you money on your electricity bills, and it can also make you more resilient to power outages.
Peak shaving: If your local utility company charges peak rates, you can use your battery to store energy during off-peak hours and use it during peak hours. This can save you money on your electricity bills.
If you are considering adding a battery to your solar project, there are a few things you should keep in mind:
The cost of batteries: Batteries can be expensive, but the cost has been coming down in recent years.
The size of your battery: The size of your battery will depend on your needs. If you want to be able to power your entire home during an outage, you will need a larger battery.
The location of your battery: Your battery will need to be located in a cool, dry place.
The warranty: Make sure to check the warranty on your battery before you buy it.
