A solar battery is what allows your home to continue to utilise energy from your solar panels after they have stopped producing electricity for the day. Solar panels
convert energy from the sun into electricity that your home can use, and more often than not, your solar panels will do one of either two things:
- Produce more power than your home can use.
- Produce the majority of the power when you aren’t home to use it.
This is where the solar battery comes in.
Your solar panels will always take care of any electricity your home needs as a first priority, after that the electricity they generate is either sent to the national grid if there is no way to store it, or it is stored so you can use it as and when you need it if you have a solar battery.
You may be wondering whether a solar battery is for you if you happen to be at home during the day, if you’re retired, or working from home for example? The answer is yes, a battery is still a great addition to your home. Solar batteries will not only store the electricity from your solar panels, but they can also sell it back to the grid using smart technology.
