Solar Panel Battery Installation
The concept of home battery storage for solar energy isn’t anything new. Off-grid solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind electricity generation on remote properties have long used battery storage to capture unused electricity for later use. Now, this technology is more available than ever, with new batteries for residential and commercial use being created every year. It’s very possible that within the next five to 10 years, most homes with solar panels will also have a solar panel battery system. If you’re considering getting a battery for your home or business, whether you’re looking to move off-grid or maximise your power savings, Solar Galaxy can get you set up.

What is a Solar Panel Battery?
A solar panel battery captures any unused solar power generated during the day for use later use at night and on low-sunlight days. Installations that include batteries are becoming increasingly popular, as they come with a variety of benefits, such as increased efficiency, improvements for off-grid systems, being able to use solar power at night and more. While batteries aren’t essential, they’re an investment that can add a lot of value to your solar power system.
Why you Should Get a Solar Battery
If your solar panel array and battery are large enough, you can run your home primarily on solar power. Using electricity from your battery can be cheaper per kilowatt-hour than using electricity from the grid, depending on the time of day and electricity tariffs in your area. Using a battery can maximise the effectiveness of your system and help you save even more on your electricity bills. There’s also a real attraction to being as independent as possible from the grid; for most people, it’s not just an economic decision, but also an environmental one. For others, it’s an effort to be independent of energy companies.
How Do Solar Batteries Work?
Solar batteries connect right into your solar inverter, storing excess unused power generated throughout the day. This energy is then used when your solar panels can’t produce enough electricity to meet your energy use, usually on dark days or at night. There are a wide variety of batteries out there, each with different pros and cons. If you’re thinking about installing a battery, getting expert advice can save you from running into problems in the future.
What’s the Best Solar Panel Battery?
With such a wide range of batteries available to choose from, it can be difficult to find the one that best meets your needs. If you’re planning on installing a battery with a new system it’s fairly easy to find a compatible battery. On the other hand, if you’re planning on adding a battery to your solar power system you need to make sure the battery you’re getting is right for the system you have installed.
