Battery Storage

Battery Storage

Solar Panels can provide you with a great amount of energy. That great it can sometimes be surplus to your requirements. This means it will be exported back to the grid at a low payable rate to you. Battery storage can remedy this by storing any surplus energy you do not use and saving it for when it’s needed. This is a great solution and an important step towards becoming self-sufficient and not having to rely on energy suppliers.

Stand Alone Battery Storage

Although solar combined with battery storage is a great system. Some decide to opt for stand-alone battery storage. This is when the customer takes advantage of cheap rate energy tariffs. For example, economy 7 or octopus go. On these tariffs, customers can charge their batteries overnight for a cheaper rate than they would pay for usual consumption during the day. They then use their stored energy from the previous night for their daily usage the following day.
