Solar panels are a fantastic start to a solar system, but if you don’t use the power, it goes wasted. That’s where a solar battery comes in.
Solar batteries store unused or excess energy from your solar system to use when the sun isn’t shining or during periods of high demand. It reduces the amount of power you draw from the grid even further and keeps you running on your own, free power for longer.
Once the solar panels have generated the power, it’s fed through a solar inverter. Depending on the type of solar system you have set up (such as a hybrid, an AC-coupled system, or a system with a solar diverter), some of this power may be diverted to charge the batteries.
When it’s needed, the batteries can then release this stored power to power your home. This includes at night, on a cloudy day, or even during a blackout.
