Solar battery storage has become popular in Scotland with people who already own solar panels or those in the market looking to get the most from their PV systems.
Battery storage also known as solar energy storage or solar battery systems, it refers to the technology used to store excess electricity generated by solar panels for later use.
As the user, you can either store electricity generate by your solar panels in your battery system for later use or sell the stored energy back to the grid, ideally at times where the payment is higher and your likelihood of needing to use to the excess energy is lower.
Finding a reliable solar battery installer in Scotland is crucial to ensuring the effectiveness, compatibility, performance and safety of your solar battery storage system. Here are some steps you can take to find best solar battery installers:
Solar battery storage offers several benefits, including:
Solar battery storage allows homeowners to store excess energy generated by their solar panels for later use, reducing reliance on the grid and providing greater energy independence.
With a solar battery storage system, homeowners can maximise self consumption of solar energy by storing excess electricity generated during the day for use during periods of low solar production, such as at night or during cloudy days.
By storing and using solar energy rather than purchasing electricity from the grid, homeowners can significantly reduce their electricity bills over time.
Solar battery storage systems can provide backup power during grid outages or blackouts, ensuring that critical appliances and systems remain operational even when the grid is down.
Solar battery storage can help reduce peak electricity demand, which can lead to cost savings for both homeowners and utilities. By storing energy during off peak hours and using it during peak demand periods, homeowners can avoid higher electricity rates associated with peak usage.
Solar battery storage systems can provide grid support services, such as frequency regulation and voltage control, helping to stabilise the grid and integrate renewable energy sources more effectively.
By utilising solar energy stored in batteries, homeowners can reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to environmental sustainability by reducing reliance on fossil fuels and lowering greenhouse gas emissions.
While the upfront cost of installing a solar battery storage system may be significant, it can lead to long term savings on electricity bills and provide a solid return on investment over the system’s lifespan.
Overall, solar battery storage offers a range of economic, environmental, and practical benefits, making it an attractive option for homeowners looking to maximise the value of their solar energy system and increase energy resilience.
The best solar panel battery really depends on your panels, PV system, inverter and especially the manufacturer of your inverter to ensure it performs to maximum capacity, doesn’t have any downtime or technical glitches.
