Storage acts as an Insurance Policy for Sunshine.
If you’ve been looking to install a solar panel system recently, you’ve probably come across the topic of solar batteries. Despite the fact that battery systems are becoming increasingly popular, many still don’t know a lot about them.
India with abundant sunshine and a unique confluence of supply and demand situation is an ideal location to combine solar with ESS (energy storage system).
Solar batteries let you store the energy that your solar panels produce for later use. Pairing your solar panels with solar batteries to create what is known as a ‘hybrid solar system’ comes with a number of advantages, including access to reliable backup power and independence from your utility.
But how exactly do solar batteries work? And more importantly, how much do they cost? Keep reading to find out.
Energy Storage System
How Solar & Batteries Work?
Solar batteries store the extra solar energy your panels produce that you don't immediately use, so you can draw from it later.
See, solar panels produce the most electricity during the middle of the day, which also happens to be the time when your home uses the least amount of electricity.
With a regular grid-tied solar system, that excess solar energy gets sent back to the utility grid. However, when solar panels are paired with a battery, that excess electricity goes into the battery instead of going to the grid. Then, when the sun goes down and your panels aren’t producing electricity anymore, you can use the energy you have stored in your battery - instead of paying for electricity from the utility.
This means you get to power your home/business with all of the clean, renewable solar power your solar panels produce no matter what time of day it is.
There are plenty of benefits from energy storage for you individually, as well as for society as a whole.
Pairing solar panels with energy storage is becoming more common, it doesn’t mean it’s the right choice for everyone.
It’s worth breaking down a few key considerations that factor into solar battery price.
