Solar Battery Storage Braunton
Solar battery storage could be a wise move for homeowners and businesses that generate more energy from their solar PV installations than they use. Instead of feeding unused electricity back into the national grid through the feed-in tariff, a solar battery will store your energy for use later. As a result, you can be even more self-sufficient. Our MCS certified energy installers have a wealth of knowledge on battery storage systems. We can also provide honest advice as to whether battery installation is suitable for your home or business.

Types of Solar Batteries
There are many types of solar batteries available on the market today. However, the most popular type of solar battery for both commercial and domestic use is lithium ion batteries. Lithium ion batteries are the superior choice due to their performance and durability.
As well as storing energy generated from solar PV, solar storage batteries can also draw off the main grid at cheaper times, such as in the night. They can then feed this cheaper energy supply back into your home when you need it, so you can avoid paying higher tariffs. In addition, unused energy generated from your solar panels can be fed back into the grid, meaning you can make money from your battery.
Lithium Ion Batteries
Lithium ion batteries are a popular choice. Essentially, they are considered the best option that is currently available for solar energy storage. Favoured for their longer lifespan and more compact size, many solar PV owners vouch for their performance and durability.
Things to Consider Before Buying Solar Battery Storage
If you are considering going off-grid, then there are a few important aspects to take into account before buying solar battery storage. Depending on your circumstances these factors should help you decide on what is best for your needs and usage.
Firstly, it is normally more cost effective to buy a battery from a reputable manufacturer that you can trust for performance. It is also wise to buy one that comes with a decent warranty term. In addition, battery capacity (how much energy the battery will hold in Kwh) will also have an influence on choice. Lastly, power rating (how much power the battery can deliver at any given time) is an important aspect to consider. This again will depend on your set up, individual energy usage and power demand.
