We can all agree how much solar batteries have grown in the past few years. It’s safe to say they have a very bright future ahead, and their growth is not slowing down. Because they provide so many benefits, homeowners can’t get enough of them.
Their popularity in Australia has skyrocketed over the past 5 years.
Did you know that Australian’s contribute to 30% of the global solar battery demand… That’s a lot. However, it might come as a struggle for some to understand which solar battery is best for your home.
This is because there are so many different factors that need to be considered. Quite frankly, it gets confusing when companies are telling you that one solar battery is the best, but another is saying a different one is better.
Having helped thousands of homeowners choose the right solar batteries across Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide it’s about time I share my hand-on experience with the rest of Australia, right?
Ok, well let’s not waste any more time. Let’s go through the stages that you need to understand before you buy the best solar battery for your home.
After this, you will be an expert in buying solar batteries, you can even help your neighbor choose!
What Are Solar Battery Storage Solutions?
In the most simple terms; solar batteries are designed to store any power that you generate from your solar panels.
When this power is stored in your battery you have the freedom to use it whenever you want. This includes at night, when your solar panels are asleep and not producing any energy. Let’s also not forget that you can power anything electrical in your home, at any time (day or night).
Since most homeowners will only use electricity from the grid at night, solar batteries seem like a profitable investment. Especially for those who have invested in electric cars. Having the option to charge your car overnight can really help.
Well, I think we can all agree that the idea of breaking up with your energy retailer doesn’t sound that bad. Having freedom of when you use your own energy, plus using less from the grid. What about no more sneaky price electricity increases! This is exactly what a solar battery storage solution can give you.
How Can They Benefit You In 2021?
There are so many different ways that solar batteries can benefit you in 2021. This is the main reason why they are so popular. I mean, if they didn’t offer your home value, no one would buy them.
Return on investment
Most importantly, solar batteries offer you a very safe and secure investment. Unless something major happens you are guaranteed to make your money back from solar batteries.
This is because they reduce the amount you pay for your energy bills. The savings you earn each month can help pay off the system. Once it’s paid off, you are making money.
Backup power for blackouts
That’s right. Solar batteries will give you backup power in case of a power cut or blackout. This means no more annoying power shortages, warm food or being bored during an emergency. By the time the sun rises your battery will be getting charged again as well. For some homeowners this is a necessity.
Virtual power plant ready
Solar batteries can allow you to become virtual power plant ready. Now, a virtual power plant works by a community of homeowners all sharing their renewable energy with each other. Solar power gets shared with everyone and solar batteries provide the energy needed at night.
This can help the entire world by reducing fossil fuels and greenhouse gasses. It will also massively reduce your energy bills.
You can also gain independence by having control over your energy. You can now access when you use it and where it goes. Like I said, you can still sell it back to the grid, store it or just self consume it from your panels. It’s easy.
